Get ready to celebrate the magic of Disney storytelling this summer! As Disneyland Park gears up for the biggest expansion in Disney park history, Disney California Adventure Park has its own party to look forward to! In honor of The Lion King, coming to theaters this July, guests will be able to see a Disney classic come to life in front of them!

Throughout the day, guests will be able to see a traveling group of storytellers roaming the park. This troupe will celebrate the story through song and dance and everyone will be invited to join in! I, personally, hope we see a smaller version of Festival of the Lion King from Disney’s Animal Kingdom! This story uses characters and songs from the animated classic, with guests being invited to participate! It is one of our favorite entertainment offerings and it would be amazing to be something similar on our coast! Check out a full video of Festival of the Lion King below!

Director Jon Favreau’s all-new “The Lion King” journeys to the African savanna where a future king must overcome betrayal and tragedy to assume his rightful place on Pride Rock. “The Lion King” roars into theaters July 19, 2019.

The magical festival of storytelling celebration will make its home in Disney California Adventure Park for a limited time this summer, so be sure to catch it before it goes anywhere! Be sure to connect with us on Twitter and Facebook to let us know what else you want to see out of this festival when it comes to Disneyland Resort!
