WATCH LIVE: A Celebration of Festival of the Lion King opens May 15
A Celebration of Festival of the Lion King opens at Disney’s Animal Kingdom on May 15.
Please note that there have been a few changes to the show since Guests last saw it. While the majesty and splendor is all there, staging and choreography have been updated with safety protocols in mind for both performers and Guests. Additionally, other parts of the show have been pared down, including the acrobatics, but the rest of the cast is sure to dazzle.
Because Disney is still physical distancing as part of their health and safety measures, the opportunity to view A Celebration of Festival of the Lion King during a visit to the park will be very limited. To give more people a chance to enjoy it, a one-time live stream will be available on May 15 at 12:25 p.m. ET on the Disney Parks Blog. Disney invites you to tune in to the first official show and join in the fun!
Looking to the future, we hope to have even more good news about entertainment to share in the coming months. Hakuna Matata!
