The Lion King

It’s the Circle of Life….and it moves us all….

Come on….you know you busted out in song too with me and this summer, at Disney’s Animal Kingdom in Walt Disney World, you’ll be busting out in song too as the park celebrates the 30th anniversary of the animated version of The Lion King. (Oh my gosh….I’m gonna go cry in the corner now because this movie came out THIRTY YEARS AGO? I watched it non-stop because I was in love with Jonathan Taylor Thomas….) This celebration will take place from Jun 10 through September 6.

Of course, there will be new merchandise that Guests will be able to pick up, including a new clothing line that’s inspired by the film. Also, you’ll be able to pick up a Pumbaa popcorn bucket! And there will definitely be more treats introduced for this celebration. Those will be shared at a later date.

If you want to meet some of your favorite characters, head on over to Rafiki’s Planet Watch. Here you’ll find not only Rafiki, but also Timon! And, while you’re at Rafiki’s Planet Watch, you’ll be able to learn how to draw characters from the film at the Animation Experience.

But now, I want to know your thoughts. Are you excited about this year’s celebration of The Lion King? You can share with me in the comments or on social! Find me on FacebookXYouTubeInstagram, Threads, and TikTok.
