There are no worries for the rest of your days at Disney’s Animal Kingdom if you happen to stumble upon the Hakuna Matata Time Dance Party. Little ones (and their parents) can unleash their wild side moves alongside favorite furry friends like Timon and Rafiki from “The Lion King,” Baloo from “The Jungle Book” and Terk from “Tarzan,” during a family-friendly dance party featuring games and lively music with a cool island vibe.

It’s hard to believe 2019 marks the 25th anniversary of the iconic “Lion King” animated film, yet the music is timeless. A live street band and vocalist perform upbeat versions of favorite hits from the film like “Hakuna Matata,” “Can you Feel the Love Tonight,” “I Just Can’t Wait to Be King” and more. You can’t help but sing along with a smile.

Little kids love learning new dance moves, and interacting with the characters is always a bonus. The Hakuna Matata Time Dance Party takes place throughout the day through September 30, at the Discovery Island Stage at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
