Tune In Saturday, May 15th for a LIVE Stream of Festival of the Lion King

We are so excited that Disney’s Festival of the Lion Kingdom will be returning to Animal Kingdom this weekend! As we can’t all be there in person, we are even more thrilled that DisneyParksBlog will be live-streaming the show on Saturday, May 15th at 12:25 pm ET!


Although there has been some small changes to the show to allow for the performers to remain safe during this time, the majesty and splendor continues to amaze.

According to DisneyParksBlog, “staging and choreography have been updated with safety protocols in mind for our performers and our guests. We’ve also pared down parts of the show, such as the acrobatics, but the rest of the cast will be sure to dazzle you.”


As physicial distancing is still an important part of Disney’s health and safety procedures, there will be very limited capacity for the show each day. Make sure to plan ahead when in the parks, and if you aren’t there, plan to watch the live stream on Saturday, May 15th at 12:25 EST.

You can find the livestream on facebook @disneyparksblog as well as on their youtube channel Disneyparks!

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
