RUMOR: Festival of The Lion King CLOSING

      Rumors are flying that Festival of The Lion King, located in the Animal Kingdom Resort, will be closing to make way for the new Avatar area Disney announced earlier this year. Our Disney sources say that it will be shutting down in January, but no word as to if it will be relocated to a different area inside Animal Kingdom or will be gone forever!

       Festival of the Lion King is an original attraction that opened with the park on April 22, 1998. The show is currently located in Camp Minnie Mickey, which is the speculated area for the new Avatar land. Personally, I wasn’t a fan of Avatar so this isn’t the most exciting news for Orville. If you know anything about this please let us know!
