Go ape for the pageantry and puppetry as this big-as-Broadway show celebrates Simba, the lion cub who would be king!

Hibernating Till Early This Summer

Feast your eyes on the Festival of the Lion King when this popular musical returns later this year!

On January 5, 2014, the sun set on Simba and friends for the final time until early this summer, when the show permanently migrates into the land of Africa at Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park.

Don’t miss your chance to witness the pride of puppetry and pageantry when this popular show rises once again over the horizon!
