At the Disney Parks, Guests have so many options to choose from when it comes to entertainment, especially at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. From thrilling rides like Expedition Everest and DINOSAUR to the wonderful world of Pandora, Animal Kingdom has to much to offer Guests.

In terms of live entertainment, ANimal Kingdom also features a truly beloved show in the form of “A Celebration of Festival of the Lion King”. However, we recently noticed that there are significantly fewer showtimes this summer for the show, according to the official website.

Starting June 27, “A Celebration of Festival of the Lion King” will be performed just four times a day instead of the typical amount we see of seven or eight at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. As of now, the show takes place multiple times a day starting at 10:00 a.m. all the way until 5:00 p.m.

For those wanting to have the most options available throughout the day, you better make plans to visit Animal Kingdom sooner rather than later.
