“It is time” to enjoy Disney’s Animal Kingdom’s favorite show. Check out the new showtimes for this family favorite show.
Return of Festival of the Lion King
“A Celebration of Festival of the Lion King” has changed a bit from the “Festival of the Lion King.” You can see all of the ways that this show has been modified HERE.
One of the main concerns of Disney Guests was the limited seating available at each of the 6 show times. A maximum of four people in the same party can sit together in the theater and then a divider blocks the next group.
Originally, the theater planned to skip rows to ensure even more physical distancing between groups. Because of this, the theater is not filled to maximum capacity.
On May 14, 2021, we announced that changes were made to the social distancing guidelines for this show. This allowed the theatre to be filled to be filled to 50% capacity.
Social distancing changes were made and the theatre for “A Celebration of Festival of the Lion King” is now filled to 50% capacity.
New Show Times
Previously, Guests could enjoy “A Celebration of Festival of the Lion King” for six shows. The previous show times were 12:30, 1:30, 2:30 pm, 5:00, 6:00, 7:00. Today, a change has been made for showtimes.
The new showtimes are now 10:30am, 11:30am, 12:30pm, 3:00pm, 4:00pm, and 5:00pm. As always these new showtimes have been updated on Character Locator.
Although we were hoping that this news would include additional showtimes, we are so excited that this great show may now be enjoyed even earlier in the day.
The new showtimes are now 10:30am, 11:30am, 12:30pm, 3:00pm, 4:00pm, and 5:00pm.
