‘A Celebration of Festival of the Lion King’ Debuted Today at Disney’s Animal Kingdom And Showtimes!


Now for some very good news. We don’t have ‘The Festival of the Lion King’ back yet, but we did finally get some entertainers back with the modified ‘A Celebration of Festival of the Lion King’ show!

My family are huge ‘Festival of the Lion King’ fans, so to have it back in any capacity is huge win as far as we’re concerned!

Today it was indicated that the show would resume, however, there were no official times posted earlier today.

Now the calendar seems to be up and it seems the show times are going to be these for the time being:





In the queue and the theater guests are being physically distanced and the show does have limited capacity.

Unlike the original show, the performers maintain physical distancing and some of the elements like the the wire flying and tumbling have been removed.  However, the fire dancing and stilt walking is still in the show.

I’m just super happy to have them back!  We missed you all!

Here’s a video of the performance from WDWNT so full credit to them for this video!

Here’s another angle from Blog Mickey!

Here’s the write-up for the new show:

Join the inhabitants of the Pride Lands for a grand gala in honor of Simba, the lion cub who would be king.

As the lights dim, hear the sounds of the African savanna. A kinetic kaleidoscope of color floods the stage as colossal puppets, extravagantly costumed dancers, and incredible stilt walkers dazzle the senses.

During spectacular theatrics, you’ll relive all the classic songs from The Lion King, including “Hakuna Matata” and “Can You Feel the Love Tonight?” The spectacular finale includes a soaring rendition of “Circle of Life.
