Entrance to Festival of the Lion King

The Festival of the Lion King is a live-musical production at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. The show opened with the park on April 22, 1998 and inspired a show of the same name at Hong Kong Disneyland.

Show Details

  • Festival of the Lion King is housed in the Harambe Theatre, the fictional customs and warehouse area of Harambe Fort which has now been converted into an artist’s market and theater as evidenced by signs and displays along the queue.
    • A plaque found along the queue declares the theater as an Official Harambe Heritage Site as of April 22, 1998. This date holds significance as the opening date of Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

Sadly, this show will never happen
