Roaring into summer is the wild new season, The Lion King & Jungle Festival, coming to Disneyland Paris from 30th June to 22nd September this year!

During this season, guests will be able to pounce to the beat of the Pride lands and get their ‘bear necessities’ on in an all-swinging, all-dancing habitat, with new shows and immersive experiences bringing the beloved Lion King and Jungle Book to life! You might even find Baloo, King Louie, Timon & Rafiki roaming about!

New for the season is The Lion King: Rhythms of the Pride Lands stage show, where guests should ‘be prepared’ to relive iconic moments from Disney’s The Lion King like never before. Guests will find themselves immersed in a brand new, world-exclusive stage show as singers, dancers and acrobats alongside the iconic characters bring Pride Rock anthems to life! This show will be performed in the newly renovated Chappelle Theatre in Disneyland Parc!

That’s not all, guests will be able to venture deep into the jungle and embark on a colourful journey through the Indian jungle in a new musical extravaganza, ‘King of Swingers’, based upon The Jungle Book. This new musical show will be a twist on the classic Disney tale. Guests will join Baloo, King Louie and friends for a jungle jingle and help explorer Mickey and his crew navigate through this mysterious land!

During this season, guests will be invited to bounce to the beats of an Africa-inspired village with pulsating drumbeats in this interactive musical moment. Guests will have a chance to learn how to play the traditional African Djembe drum with the Djembe Academy!

After that head over to Adventureland and join Timon, Pumba and some party performers to learn how to “MataDance”. Learn how to stop while following the ‘Hakuna Matata’ philosophy with your favourite duo.

Guests will also find famous faces from The Lion King and Jungle Book roaming around Disneyland Parc. Creating the chance to spend some magic moments with your beloved Disney Characters, so why not gain some wisdom for Rafiki or show off your dancing moves to King Louie- the King of Swing!

End the adventure with the jaw-dropping, spectacular Illuminations show as Mickey guides you through many classic Disney tales such as The Lion King, Frozen and Pirates of the Caribbean with fireworks and projections.
