The Festival of the Lion King is a Broadway-inspired live show celebrating Disney’s film, The Lion King. You can see The Festival of the Lion King daily at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. From the acrobatic antics of the Tumble Monkeys to Zawadi’s soaring vocals during the signature “Circle of Life,” the lively spirit of the show’s cast will keep you entertained throughout the entire live show. This has also made the “Festival of the Lion King” a guest favorite at Walt Disney World Resort for 15 years.

Disney has announced that the “Festival of the Lion King” will soon be moving to an all-new theater at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. The new theater will bring the “tribal celebration” home fittingly to the Africa section of the park, where Disney’s Animal Kingdom visitors will be able to continue enjoying the show for years to come.

The new “Festival of the Lion King” theater is scheduled to open sometime in 2014.

Be sure to check the Times Guide at the park each day for the most up to date times you can catch the Festival of the Lion King!
