New Ways to Celebrate Summer at Walt Disney World: Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Summertime at The Most Magical Place On Earth is going to be extra magical this year! Not only will guests be able to join the party in The Big Easy when Tiana’s Bayou Adventure opens at Magic Kingdom, but The Lion King 30th anniversary roars into Disney’s Animal Kingdom this summer!

There’s no better way to start this announcement than with … NAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANTS INGONYAMA BGITHI BABA!!!

That’s right – guests can get ready to roar at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park where the celebration for the 30th anniversary of “The Lion King” animated film will prowl throughout the entire park from June 10 through Sept. 6. There is a whole new merchandise collection so guests can see the iconic Disney’s Animal Kingdom stage show, Festival of The Lion King, in style.

Are Guests ready to rustle up some grubs?  There will be special menu items to snack on … and this adorable Pumbaa popcorn bucket to add to their pride! Stay tuned, because Disney Eats will have more to share on delicious treats later.

To fully embrace that “Hakuna Matata” lifestyle, guests can head on over to Rafiki’s Planet Watch where they can once again meet Timon and Rafiki. Figuring out when these furry friends are available for hugs or advice on finding the most delicious bugs is as easy as checking out My Disney Experience. Now that’s a problem-free philosophy to get behind!

And, while guests are at Rafiki’s Planet Watch, they can visit Animation Experience and learn to draw characters from “The Lion King.”

It’s going to be an awesome summer at Walt Disney World – and in addition to this limited-time experience, guests can cool down with H2O Glow After Hours at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon and kick their feet up during a Disney Resort Hotel stay.

It’s going to be an enchanting summer at Walt Disney World!
