Hello ladies and gentlemen! It’s me, Anonymouse, again and I have even more new gossip for you this week! Chip won’t know what to do with two new rumors in one week!

Back last fall, I confirmed Disney’s plan to create a new Avatarland in Disney’s Animal Kingdom. We even shared the blue prints for Avatarland with you! In case you missed it or need a refresher, you can read the article here. Today, I have an update for you on the changes coming to Disney’s Animal Kingdom to accommodate the new Avatarland. Some originally wondered if The Festival of the Lion King would come to an end with the addition of Avatarland, but don’t worry Lion King fans, it’s just getting a new home!

The Festival of the Lion King show at Animal Kingdom will be moving to a new location to make room for Avatarland! The Festival of the Lion King is currently in Camp Minnie-Mickey and will be relocating to Africa, near the Tusker House restaurant. Rumor has it that Disney is calling this project “A K Africa Hardscape Improvement.” Disney has already placed construction walls near the entrance of Africa to make room for the new theater that will be home to The Festival of the Lion King.

What do you think of the Festival of the Lion King show? Will you be glad to see it stay at Animal Kingdom? Are you looking forward to the new Avatarland?

Any who, that is all the Disney Gossip I have for you right now. For my past Gossip articles, be sure to check them out here.
