Disney’s Animal Kingdom has undergone a few changes and additions in the past couple of years. Notable new experiences like Pandora The World of Avatar and the Rivers of Light nightly show have added even more excitement to the park. One of guests favorite enhancements has been the Tree of Life Awakenings. This projection show happens multiple times each evening and brings the Tree of Life to life using state-of-the-art technology and classic Disney storytelling. Now a new Lion King sequence is being added to the show to celebrate the film’s 25th anniversary.
The Tree of Life Awakenings have wowed guests with beautiful animation and an elegant narrative style. Displaying short scenes telling the story of certain animals on the tree, it’s definitely not to be missed. Beginning Memorial Day and running through September 30th, the show will feature new scenes honoring the classic Disney film. Premiering in 1994, The Lion King is considered one of Disney’s most beloved films. Its success has spawned a Broadway show, sequels, TV shows and soon a new live-action remake. The reimagining of the classic animated tale is set to hit screens on July 19 and has garnered a lot of attention already.
The new Lion King scenes in The Tree of Life Awakenings aren’t the only way to celebrate the film’s birthday. Disney’s Animal Kingdom will also host a new Hakuna Matata Time Dance Party. This new experience is currently available daily on Discovery Island. Guests can join Timon, Pumba, and Rafiki as they party with a live band playing Disney hits with a calypso twist!
