Festival of the Lion King

The most popular live show at Disney’s Animal Kingdom is “Festival of the Lion King,” a virtual explosion of colors, music and amazing talent. You will be treated to 30 minutes of a variety of some of Disney’s best entertainment in this celebration. You’ll hear some of The Lion King's most popular music performed by magnificent singers. Zany trampoline acrobatics are supplied by the Tumble Monkeys. A blaze of color, feathers, beads, fringe and beautiful head-dresses are found in the costumes of the singer and dancers. Talented stilt walkers dance to the pounding beat with apparent ease. Audio-animatronic and live costumed characters are introduced on enormous moving stages. The spectacular finale includes a heart-stirring rendition of the “Circle of Life."
