VIDEO, PHOTOS: Full Festival of the Lion King Show Returns to Disney’s Animal Kingdom

    It’s still a celebration, but it’s not a celebration. Disney debuted the full version of their popular Festival of the Lion King show at Disney’s Animal Kingdom this morning to a full house. The show has been performed in a modified capacity under the name A Celebration of Festival of the Lion King since May 2021 due to physical distancing restrictions of the time.

    Today, fan-favorite acts return with the return of the “full” show. Namely, the tumble monkeys and aerial acrobatics have returned. The only significant change is that there is no audience participation in the finale.

    Here’s a full video of the electric return of Festival of the Lion King along with photos of the return performance!
