PHOTOS: “A Celebration of the Festival of the Lion King” Removes Physical Distancing, Filling All Seats at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Guests who attend “A Celebration of the Festival of the Lion King” inside Harambe Theatre at Disney’s Animal Kingdom will find that operations have returned to their pre-pandemic state. The physical distancing measures have been eliminated, and crowds are herded into every available seat. While the show has not been restored to its full production, these changes are steps along the return to “normal.”


Our showing wasn’t even full, but Cast Members were directing guests to fill each row completely. When the theater reopened earlier this year, guests were directed to leave space between their party and others.


The distancing stickers have been removed from the benches around the theater.
