Hakuna Matata! The Festival of the Lion King is an elaborate, Broadway-style stage show based on the classic Disney movie. You’ll hear all of your favorite Lion King songs as well as some new musical numbers.
Children are sometimes asked to join the performers on stage and participate in the show (try to sit near the front to improve your chances of being selected!).
This is a popular show, so if you want to go you might want to visit first thing in the morning or later in the day to avoid a long wait.
The show takes place inside an air-conditioned theater, it’s a nice place to take a cool break on a hot day!
The Festival of the Lion King release a large number of people into Africa at show’s end. Keep this in mind if you’re planning on grabbing a bite or visiting one of the other attractions (if you don’t have a FastPass+ reservation that is). If things seem unusually crowded, you usually just have to wait a few minutes for everyone to spread out again.
