    Will there be any events at Disney World when the Lion King movie is released in July?

    Hi Ashley!

    "The Lion King" is one of my favorite movies and one I still remember seeing in the theater. I cannot wait for this new movie to come out and to take my kids to see it!

    There haven't been announcements regarding any events to coincide with the release of the new "The Lion King" movie, but the best place to check for upcoming fun is the Disney Parks Blog.

    Since you are visiting before September, you can take advantage of the 25th anniversary of "The Lion King" at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park by celebrating with special photo ops with fun backgrounds. There is one located even before you step through the front gates! You'll also find the Hakuna Matata Time Dance Party, a character dance party, on Discovery Island and starting this summer in the evenings, the Tree of Life Awakenings will have a new storyline of our beloved Simba and his journey from "The Lion King".

    While you're visiting Disney's Animal Kingdom, check out some of the new magic that has opened recently! You can now spot Kevin from the movie "Up" roaming around the park. We have seen her twice now and she's so beautiful and fun in real life. There's also a new bird show called Up! A Great Bird Adventure. My kids loved seeing Russell on stage and all of the gorgeous birds that were shown.

    Have a magical day!
