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.


  • 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.

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

  • 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 ??

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

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

  • Can we find out about when the celebration begins sooner than later as in like sometime in the next month or two because my family has a busy schedule in the military?

  • Is the lion king celebration going to start on July 20th? I’m asking because I’m going to visit my grandmother on that week for her family reunion and I also wanted to spend that week with my girlfriend and her dad for this celebration at the same week.

  • July 20th is pretty late for the celebration to begin, it looks to me as if the celebration will begin around Late May- Early June

  • @Jorge, all I want to know is when the lion king celebration starts and how long during the summer it’s going to be lasting for

  • The “spirit of Africa” where specifically?

  • Why does Disneyland Paris and Disney world get specific dates and activities. I want tmdetails. I love love the lion king.
