There are so many incredible entertainment opportunities at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. There are two big theater productions: Festival of the Lion King and Finding Nemo: The Big Blue and Beyond. KiteTails is the daily show that takes place since there is no nighttime fireworks.

Mickey and Minnie have recently returned, and our favorite Dinoland friends will be back once again! It’s so great to see the parks come alive with characters. Of course, we still have a few friends on flotillas and I doubt those will ever go away.

Then, you have smaller performing acts like the festive Viva Gaia Street Band, Kora Tinga Tinga, and Chakranadi. These performers are always so fun to watch because they bring the spirit and culture of Asia and Africa to life for Guests.

Disney has worked slowly to bring back such entertainment acts, and we have wonderful news to share once again!

They perform in the Harambe section of Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Unfortunately, they have yet to return to the park but that is about to change very soon!
