We have wonderful news! More live entertainment will be returning to Walt Disney World this summer.
When Walt Disney World reopened in July 2020, many live entertainment options were canceled indefinitely as Disney struggled to balance physical distancing and maximizing revenue.

Well, Disney Parks Blog has just announced that this summer Animal Kingdom’s beloved “Festival of the Lion King” live show will return!
Disney has had to make changes to some of the most magical experiences that set their theme parks apart including character interaction and entertainment options.
When it returns, “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.Disney Parks Blog
We can’t wait to sing along with our favorite Lion King characters and experience this magical show once more.
We expect more entertainment to return as well. Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
