PHOTOS: Guests Being Seated in Every Row, Space Between Guests Reduced at “A Celebration of Festival of the Lion King” in Disney’s Animal Kingdom

“A Celebration of Festival of the Lion King,” a modified version of a long-time favorite show, officially opened today. With the official reopening comes a change: guests are now being seated in every row.

As we saw at the Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Hollywood Studios, guests must put on masks when they enter the queue proper, but don’t need it in any external, extended, outdoor queue. Cast members will tell you when you need it.

Once inside the theater, guests are seated in every row now.

Markers allow space for parties of four.

The markers are staggered from row to row. Doing so prevents one party from sitting directly in front of another, maintaining some physical distancing.

In our estimation, seating guests in every row has increased capacity inside the theater to approximately 50%. During last week’s soft opening, theater capacity was at 33%.
