New Festival of the Lion King Dining Packages Announced for Disney’s Animal Kingdom

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Coming to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park: Festival of the Lion King Signature Dining Packages, including a delicious meal at Tiffins Restaurant that includes one appetizer, one entrée, one dessert, and your choice of wine, beer, or a non-alcoholic beverage, followed by special VIP seating at one of the most popular shows at Walt Disney World Resort.

The Festival of the Lion King Signature Dining Packages are available daily starting August 13 through November 21, 2018. Reservations open tomorrow, August 2.

There are two different packages available. The more expensive package adds a custom version of Kilimanjaro Safaris. It also appears to include better seats at Festival of the Lion King (“priority VIP” vs. “priority reserved”, although it’s not clear from the wording on the Parks Blog post whether these are actually two different things).

The Tier I Festival of the Lion King Signature Dining Package (which includes lunch or dinner at Tiffins Restaurant, priority VIP seating at Festival of the Lion King, and a safari tour) is $99 per adult and $49 per children ages 3-9 (tax and gratuities not included).

The Tier II Festival of the Lion King Signature Dining Package (which includes lunch or dinner at Tiffins Restaurant and priority reserved seating at Festival of the Lion King) is $74 per adult and $29 for children ages 3-9 (tax and gratuities not included).

Along with your meal, you’ll receive special vouchers for priority reserved VIP seating at Festival of the Lion King, a Broadway-style show filled with pageantry, puppetry, and popular songs from the film. You’ll even receive a commemorative cast photo that captures the moment forever.

With the Tier I dining package, you’ll get to continue the fun with a unique safari tour through the African outback, where over 34 distinct wildlife species seemingly roam free. Escorted by a special guide, you’ll ride through rugged terrain to see some of the world’s most exotic animals in their unique habitats. Tour guides will provide interesting information on the land and its residents for an expedition you’ll never forget!

The Festival of the Lion King Signature Dining Packages are available daily starting August 13 through November 21, 2018. Starting tomorrow (August 2), reservations can be made online at the Walt Disney World Resort website or by calling (407) WDW-DINE (407 939-3463). All menu items and event experiences are subject to change or cancellation without notice.
