Disney Parks Blog recently announced that “Festival of the Lion King” will be moving to a new home within Disney’s Animal Kingdom, the Africa themed land. Why you may ask? Besides it making more sense for it to be in Africa instead of Camp Minnie-Mickey, is it possible they are making room for Avatar Land? This is one of theories going around and it makes sense. There has also been rumors floating about of teasers regarding Disney and Cameron’s partnership at this years D23 Expo August 9-11. Unfortunately I will not be attending the Expo but I will keep you updated on what I find out about the announcements at the Expo.
If you have never seen the Festival of the Lion King, I highly recommend it! It is an interactive, acrobatic, musical festival experience that is certainly a unique experience great for kids and adults. I have not heard anything of any closings for the show as of now and can’t imagine it closing until they are ready for the move planned for 2014.
Have you seen Festival of the Lion King? Is it a “must see” or a one-timer? Why do you think they are moving it? If not for Avatar Land, what do you think will or should take its place?
