See recent posts by Lissa Poirot

Disney’s Animal Kingdom is turning 20 this year, and to mark the occasion, the theme park is adding a new theatre and musical events.

Harambe Theater will open on June 7 with the new “Harambe Nights” running through August 9. The new show will provide a new way to experience “The Lion King,” with Tony- and Emmy-award nominated narrators Viola Davis, David Alan Grier and more.

A Harambi Night street party will also take place throughout the summer, with dancing characters.

Also coming this summer is the new “Rivers of Light” nighttime spectacular with live music, illuminated images of animals dancing on the Discovery River, and more.
