Since Disney World reopened in the summer of 2020, there have been several modifications and adjustments needed in order to accommodate the new health and safety guidelines.
One of the biggest changes has been the continued closure of many of Disney World’s entertainment offerings. However, it looks like one of the most beloved stage shows will be returning in the coming months!
Disney has announced that Festival of the Lion King will return this summer to the Harambe Theatre at Disney’s Animal Kingdom!
Disney shared that when the show opens, it will be modified from its original format to comply with physical distancing guidelines. This will mean new choreography and staging that will allow for safe distancing amongst the performers, as well as physically distanced seating configurations for the audience.
In the fall of 2020, we learned that Disney World had laid off many of their performers, including cast members from Festival of the Lion King. This called into question when exactly the show would return.
We can’t wait to return to the Harambe Theatre later this summer! We will continue to keep a close watch on Disney World to see if any additional entertainment offerings are on their way back.
