Earlier this week, the cast of the popular stage show “The Festival of The Lion King” at Disney’s Animal Kingdom marked a major milestone – 1 million guests have attended the show since it reopened in the new Harambe Theatre this past June.
The LePage Family from Colorado Springs, CO, were the lucky 1 millionth family, and were recognized with front-row seats and a special meet-and-greet opportunity with the show’s cast after the performance concluded.
In case you aren’t familiar with the show, “The Festival of The Lion King” is a fun retelling of the story of Simba the lion cub that is told through song, dance, acrobatics, aerial performances and more. It debuted at the park in Camp Minnie-Mickey in 1998. The show relocated to the new Harambe Theatre in the Africa section of the park earlier this year.
