“The Lion King” has always been one of the focal points of a visit to Animal Kingdom theme park. There’s the not-to-be-missed “Festival of the Lion King” which has been wowing guests at the theme parks since 1998 as well as the chance to meet some of your favorite Lion King friends. As Animal Kingdom officially celebrates that 25th Anniversary of this beloved film, they are also offering special activities for Simba fans of all ages!
A highlight of “The Lion King” celebration is the NOW OPEN! Hakuna Matata Time Dance Party. This wild celebration takes place on Discovery Island and is the perfect way for young travelers to show off their “wild” dance moves! The party host also leads guests in fun and games inspired by the film.
The dance party feature a troupe of incredibly talented musicians along with a DJ providing the perfect soundtrack of animal-inspired popular songs from “The Lion King.” Timon, Rafiki, Baloo, Koda, Meeko and Terk are also on hand to mingle with visitors.
In addition to the “Hakuna Matata Time Dance Party” Animal Kingdom will also be offering some fun photo ops including a three-dimensional scene that will make it look like you’re in the film.
