Reports are coming in that A Celebration of Festival of the Lion King will be opening today!
Last month we shared the news that Festival of the Lion King’ at Disney’s Animal Kingdom would be returning in May and it looks like today is the day!
“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. We’ll also adjust how the audience is seated, in line with other theater-based experiences at Walt Disney World Resort.
As of right now there are no showtimes listed on the Disney World App but we are hearing word that Cast Members are getting things ready for a 1pm showtime.
There is no word if this is a soft opening or that it will remain open going forward.
Stay tuned as this story is developing.
