The Lion King Stars Grand Marshal Magic Kingdom

The Lion King celebration continues this Saturday, July 13, at Magic Kingdom Park where JD McCray and Shahadi Wright, the voices of young Simba and young Nala, will be honorary Grand Marshals for the 3 p.m. Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade!

To continue the celebration, you will be able to join them at Disney’s Animal Kingdom later in the day, where they will commemorate the release of the new film and the 25th anniversary of the original animated classic The Lion King.

The park will offer summer entertainment, delicious treats and new items honoring some of your favorite characters from the movie.

Did you know that Disney’s Animal Kingdom and the new live action movie have a special connection? The movie’s production team spent six weeks at the theme park researching naturalistic backdrops that helped inspire scenes from the movie!

Don’t forget to go see Disney’s “The Lion King” theaters on July 19th.
