A Celebration of the Festival of the Lion King (a modified version of The Festival of the Lion King) in Disney’s Animal Kingdom was one of the first live entertainment shows to reopen in Disney World after the unprecedented closure of the parks at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Right now, the show is a little different than you might remember with modified audience interaction and scenes, though soon it’ll be looking more normal with the Tumble Monkeys and the iconic flying birds returning this summer according to Disney. And, if you’re hoping to catch the updates while you’re visiting, there’s an important update on showtimes that you’ll want to know!
Earlier this year, Disney Parks began something called Celebrate Soulfully which offered experiences that celebrate Black culture and heritage. Celebrate Soulfully was introduced as a way to celebrate Black History Month and it brought with it special food items, entertainment, and merchandise.
June is Black Music Month and Disneyland is celebrating big with the return of an exciting show, plus many more entertainment offerings!
After months of being closed, shows have started to reopen and return to Broadway.
We’ve already shared a look at the vaccination and testing requirements for Broadway shows, and the dates that 2 Disney on Broadway shows will return. But, what if you can’t make it to New York? No problem! You can actually be a part of the grand re-opening of one classic Disney on Broadway show right from the comfort of your couch!
We do occasionally come across some items that leave us wondering if someone had one too many drinks from Nomad Lounge before giving the green light. While walking around Disney’s Animal Kingdom, we came across something that will legitimately keep you up at night!
This summer, runDisney’s Summer Virtual Series is inspired by The Lion King! Participants run in three virtual 5K races and receive a Lion King-themed medal for each!
If you’re running the races — or just need a new accessory for a trip to Disney’s Animal Kingdom — you’ll want to check out this new Lion King DIY headband that runDisney released in preparation for the virtual series! [Read more…]
But we also really love our pets, and Disney knows this, which is why you can get TONS of Disney pet-related merchandise at Disney Parks and online. But what if you could share your love of Disney snacks with your pet?
You may have watched your favorite Disney movies HUNDREDS of times as a kid. But, you might not find out about all of the cool easter eggs, hidden details, and alternative endings(!!) until you’re much older.
When you’re older, you’ll also probably start to realize a bunch of things about the Disney movies that MAKE ZERO SENSE!! (Olaf LIED! 😆) Seriously, there are some MASSIVE plot holes in Disney movies that you may have never given a second thought to or noticed. And once you see them, believe us when we say you will NOT be able to unsee them ever again. You’ve been WARNED!
Valentine’s Day is just a few weeks away, and love is in the air!
