Festival of the Lion King brings the familiar characters of the Disney animated classic
film The Lion King from the movie screen to an action-packed stage at Disney's Animal
Kingdom theme park. This scheduled 30-minute big-as-Broadway live show combines
the pageantry of a parade with a tribal celebration.

Through music featured in the film, high-energy dances, and even fire juggling, Disney
Characters Timon, Simba, Pumbaa, Rafiki, Zazu, Mufasa and more team up with a traveling
band of "African tribal performers" to tell the tale of a lion cub who can't wait to be king.

Festival of the Lion King is performed in an air-conditioned theater-in-the-round with
stadium seating. Take a seat and be prepared to be dazzled by the puppetry, pageantry,
colorful costumes, spectacular singing and gymnastics—keep a look out for the balletic
birds and acrobatic monkeys!

Act Like an Animal at Festival of the Lion King

During the Festival of the Lion King show, you're encouraged to be part of the action. Each
of the 4 sections around the stage takes turns acting like a giraffe, a warthog, a lion or an
elephant. Did you know giraffes make the same sound as sheep: bleeet! Get caught up in
the fun—play and sing along with the life-sized critters and Disney Characters as they
interact with the audience.

Hakuna matata, no worries, if you don't know the words to the songs sung during Festival
of the Lion King, your animal guide will teach you your part in the great "Circle of Life."

Refer to the Times Guide, which is available at the Park entrance, at Guest Relations
and at most merchandise locations.
