The Festival of the Lion King show at Disney’s Animal Kingdom is probably my favorite show on Disney Property! This past week, the cast celebrated as they received their One Millionth guests since the show reopened at the new Harambe Theater this past June! That’s a LOT of guests!
The LePage Family from Colorado Springs, CO, were the lucky 1 millionth family, and were recognized with front-row seats and a special meet-and-greet opportunity with the show’s cast after the performance was finished.
In case you aren’t familiar with the show, “The Festival of The Lion King” is a fun retelling of the story of Simba the lion cub that is told through song, dance, acrobatics, aerial performances and more. It debuted at the park in Camp Minnie-Mickey in 1998. The show relocated to the new Harambe Theatre in the Africa section of the park earlier this year. ~ From Disney Parks Blog
