A LIVE Fan Favorite Show is Returning earlier than expected!

A long awaited show will be returning to Disney World. Find out here when this fan favorite will be back! Read on for more details!

Entertainment Closures

When Disney World first reopened, live shows did not join in. Shows like The Festival of the Lion King and the Indian Jones Stunt show were kept closed.

These fan favorites have been greatly missed. Disney has continued to keep the magic alive by having cavalcades with favorite characters! They also have been characters out and about for socially distanced meets!

I am glad that Disney has kept these. Characters are part of the Disney magic. Check out Character Locator for even more information on where and how you can interact with characters on your next Disney vacation.

Previous Statement From Disney

Back in January, Disney Parks Blog shared that the Festival of The Lion King would be back with modifications. Here is what they had said:

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.
