Beloved Show to Return to Disney’s Animal Kingdom


Since the reopening of their theme parks and Resort hotels, Walt Disney World has taken a different approach to their entertainment by utilizing new ways to share the magic of the Disney characters. Their cavalcades and flotillas have been popular since the theme parks reopened and they are looking to bring back more entertainment with that same responsible and thoughtful approach. 

Disney is looking to begin the process of bringing more of their singers, dancers, technicians, and other cast members back to work. The Harambe Theatre at Disney’s Animal Kingdom is host to one of the most popular shows at Walt Disney World and that fan-favorite is the incomparable “Festival of the Lion King.”

Disney says,

When it returns, “Festival of the Lion King” will be presented in a modified format to be mindful of the current environment. There will be adjustments to the show on stage and backstage, including updates to choreography to allow for appropriate physical distancing. We’ll also adjust how the audience is seated, in line with other theater-based experiences at Walt Disney World Resort.  

We are looking forward to seeing the modified show when it returns this summer!
