Hakuna Chicken Strips, a fan favorite, are notably absent. Instead the newer dishes lean towards the African-inspired menu. Located in Adventureland, Restaurant Hakuna Matata first welcomed park guests on April 12, 1992. Originally named Aux Epices Enchantées (With Enchanted Spices) Restaurant, it was renamed and lightly re-themed after the major success of the iconic Walt Disney Feature Animation motion picture The Lion King (1994).

Both Restaurant Hakuna Matata and Fuente del Oro Restaurante (Frontierland) share the same back of house facilities.
