When Disney World reopened in 2020, several things remained closed or unavailable, including LOTS of live entertainment shows.
Slowly, some things have come back, including the Frozen Sing-Along show in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. When the massive entertainment layoffs were announced, however, we thought it might be a while before we saw some of our other favorite shows return. But now we’ve got some HUGE NEWS! The Festival of the Lion King show will be returning to Disney’s Animal Kingdom soon!
YES. You read that correctly. Disney has just announced that the fan-favorite Festival of the Lion King show at Animal Kingdom will be coming back soon! Specifically, the show is expected to return this summer.
When it comes back, the show will be “presented in a modified format to be mindful of the current environment.” Disney has noted that “There will be adjustments to the show on stage and backstage, including updates to choreography to allow for appropriate physical distancing.” Disney will also be adjusting “how the audience is seated, in line with other theater-based experiences at Walt Disney World Resort.”
We can’t wait to see what this experience will be like when it reopens and to sing along with all of our favorite performers. We’ll keep an eye out for more details about this experience and keep you updated on all the latest!
