A Celebration of the Festival of the Lion King returned earlier this year with some major updates. One thing we all miss very much are the tumbling monkeys! Are they making a comeback? New signs say yes!

This popular show returned to everyone’s delight back in May. Much of the show has remained the same, but there are a few differences. You can read all about this HERE.

We are still missing those bouncing monkeys and flying birds, but it is still great to have the show back for guests to watch.

Among the other differences in the show are guests are not allowed to sing, but they are encouraged to clap instead. No one is chosen to be part of the show and guests cannot do the little parade anymore. I know the parade was one of my favorite parts. Hopefully we will see the show continue to slowly return to normal real soon.

Disney recently posted a new job listing looking for Stunt Actors with Tramp Wall experience. While the show and location is not listed, it does state at The Walt Disney World Resort near Orlando, Florida.

There are currently no other shows at Disney World that use trampolines, so this leads us to believe the tumbling monkeys may be making a comeback to the Lion King show at Animal Kingdom.

It’s possible that a new show may be in the works, but that doesn’t seem likely since Disney is still trying to get all current shows back up and going. Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular reopened just a few days ago. Fantasmic! and the Festival of Fantasy parade are set to reopen in early 2022.

Finally, a reimaged Finding Nemo show at Animal Kingdom will debut sometime next year as well.
