Are you ready to clap along with “I Just Can’t Wait to Be King” and other classic songs from The Lion King?
Disney announced that they are starting the process of bringing back to work more singers, dancers, technicians and other cast members, from one of the most popular shows at Walt Disney World Resort. Expected this summer, the Harambe Theatre at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park will host that fan-favorite troupe of musical storytellers, along with Simba and his friends, in a celebration of the incomparable “Festival of the Lion King.”
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. They will also adjust how the audience is seated, in line with other theater-based experiences at Walt Disney World Resort.
Since reopening the Walt Disney World theme parks last July, Disney has taken a different approach to entertainment, coming up with new ways to share the magic of the Disney characters. Cavalcades and flotillas will continue to delight guests daily with the addition of the return of these entertainment options.
