‘Celebration of the Festival of the Lion King’ Quietly Debuts Today at Animal Kingdom

    After announcing a mid-May opening for the modified “Celebration of the Festival of the Lion King” last month, Disney World will quietly debut the show today at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. The show is expected to be a modified version of the Festival of the Lion King show to comply with physical distancing limitations for performers and guests.

    Unlike other shows and entertainment that has had an announced reopening date, Disney did not make the debut date for Celebration of the Festival of the Lion King widely known. The first show is at 12:30pm.

    UPDATE: Here’s a look at the debut performance!
