  1. in the middle of July they close a huge part of animal kingdom which is already a very light park? no nemo, no lion king in the middle of July with the huge July crowds? Why are they waiting for July?????????

    1. There’s a story right before this with the return date of the Tumble Monkeys, it is after this date. This show is ending, it has a different name and is very different.
