This summer, Disney California Adventure park will come alive with a vibrant celebration inspired by Disney’s “The Lion King.”

Throughout the day, a traveling troupe of storytellers will arrive to celebrate “The Lion King” in story, song and dance, inviting everyone to join in. The fun continues with music, colorful craft activities and more, honoring the spirit of Africa.

Our festive celebration of “The Lion King” will be presented for a limited time this summer at Disney California Adventure park. Stay tuned to Disney Parks Blog for more details in the weeks ahead.


  • Dean… possibly because Disneyland will be bombarded with Star Wars fanatics…

  • @Jason, World of Color is coming back at the end of February 🙂 So we can have WOC and a summertime Lion King celebration!

  • Sounds like a great idea but I’m left wondering why this isn’t being performed in Adventureland at Disneyland Park. I’m having a hard time placing it anywhere inside Disney California Adventure – maybe Paradise Gardens ??

  • Please tell me that includes a meet and greet with Timon and rafiki 😖😖🙏🙏

  • yeah but where is World of Color??!! it has only been almost a year now!! so sad that it is not a priority for Disney.
