Get ready to see the tumble monkeys and acrobatic birds at Animal Kingdom again! We have a date set!
A Celebration of Festival of the Lion King
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.
Returning to the show
If you are wondering when the tumble monkeys will appear on stage at Festival of the Lion King, we have great news to share! Disney took to TikTok back in March to share the exciting news that the tumble monkeys will return this summer!
Previously no date was set, but Disney says the tumble monkeys and acrobatic birds will be returning to “Festival of the Lion King” on July 16. Hopefully with this language, that means participants will be chosen for the show again!
Tumble monkeys and acrobatic birds return to Festival of the Lion King on July 16, 2022. Hopefully this means the original show will be performed again.
