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.

Job Listings

Disney posted a new job listing back in December looking for Stunt Actors with Tramp Wall experience. While the show and location was 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 led us to believe the tumbling monkeys may be making a comeback to the Lion King show at Animal Kingdom.
