We found this Simba and Nala headband a few days ago over at Pioneer Mercantile at Disneyland, but this is the first time we’ve seen them at Walt Disney World.

This ear headband, inspired by Disney’s animated classic “The Lion King,” features a young Simba and Nala on either side of the soft padded bow in the center.

The woven fabric ears are also soft and feature screen art and embroidered detailing.

The blue and green sun symbol in the middle is from Rafiki’s prophetic drawings. The pink, blue, and green patterns around the sun feature a tribal pattern.

A screen art picture of a young Simba is printed on this side of the soft, padded bow.

“Festival of the Lion King” is located in the Harambe Theater in Africa. The 30-minute production features performances that include live vocals, colorful puppets and audio animatronics, fire dancing, acrobatics, and so much more.

You’ll hear some of the most popular songs from “The Lion King,” including “I Just Can’t Wait to Be King” and “The Circle of Life.”

Festival of the Lion King

Just last month, we reported that the guest interaction portion of “Festival of the Lion King” had returned.

Since the parks closed in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we haven’t witnessed the complete rendition of the “Festival of the Lion King,” as the guest interactions were still absent. Disney has gradually reintroduced several components to the show.

In July of last year, the Tumble Monkeys, beloved by fans, made a comeback alongside aerial dancers who are adorned in bird costumes. The show officially returned to the Harambe Theatre in the summer of 2021, albeit in a very modified version.

At the beginning of the performance, the actors go on stage and split the crowd into four groups: warthogs, elephants, giraffes, and lions. Next, one of the four hosts invites a member of the audience to join them on stage and instructs them on the sound that their assigned animal produces. The audience member then repeats the sound, followed by everyone in that section.

In the end, everyone in the theatre gives a rousing rendition of their respective animal. At the conclusion of the show, the performers brought more children onto the stage, with many of them carrying African musical instruments.
