The Festival of the Lion King

“IT IS TIME!!!!!”  These words give me chills every time I hear them at the beginning of my favorite show, The Festival of the Lion King at Animal Kingdom.   The power and energy of this show brings out every emotion in me and my whole family.

DinoLand Meet & Greet

Since the closing of Camp Minnie-Mickey in 2014 to make room for Pandora at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, the lack of character meet-and-greets for guests has been apparent.
