Pride Rock is coming to Disney California Adventure this summer, and we now know just how long the celebration of The Lion King will last.

A recent job posting from Disney has confirmed that the event will run from June 7th to September 2nd, 2019.

From our initial report on the event, as it was announced in February:

Throughout the day, a traveling troupe of storytellers will arrive to celebrate “The Lion King” in story, song and dance, inviting everyone to join in. The fun continues with music, colorful craft activities and more, honoring the spirit of Africa.

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 festive celebration of “The Lion King” will be presented for a limited time this summer at Disney California Adventure park.
