Reminder: Festival of the Lion King Closed Today, May 9

Festival of the Lion King at Disney’s Animal Kingdom will be closed Wednesday, May 9, for a brief refurbishment while the Harambe Theater receives some maintenance work.  The stage show is expected to resume performances on Thursday, May 10, 2018.

Festival of the Lion King, the popular, high-energy live musical at Disney’s Animal Kingdom combines music, puppetry and pageantry inspired by Disney’s animated film classic, “The Lion King.” Performed inside the Harambe Theatre, this Broadway-style show is an exciting retelling of the film and immerses the audience in theatrics and classic songs.
