    We LOVE the live entertainment at all the parks in Walt Disney World. Especially the Philharmonics at the Magic Kingdom, which has been reduced to once a day. Is there any information on what live entertainment will return and when?

    Welcome to planDisney, Shannon! 

    I can tell that we are going to be pals, because the live entertainment at Walt Disney World Resort is one of my very favorite reasons to visit! I’ve missed the traditional Parades, Fireworks & Nighttime Spectaculars, Character Experiences, live performances, and extra sprinkles of pixie-dusted moments at the theme parks! But it looks like there is hope for us entertainment-loving visitors! 

    The Disney Parks Blog recently announced the return of our favorite roaring king! Festival of the Lion King, at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park, is making its grand return this summer! This happy news has us stalking the Disney Parks Blog for additional announcements every day! I’d highly recommend keeping tabs on the Disney Parks Blog, as they are typically the first to announce exciting news, Shannon! 

    I know that I am a full-grown adult, but some of my favorite entertainment has to be For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration at Disney’s Hollywood Studios (which has an element of “live entertainment” with a few familiar characters) and Beauty and the Beast Sing-Along at EPCOT! These are fabulous entertainment options that are currently available at Walt Disney World! 

    Though we don’t have any specific information on what additional live entertainment will be returning and when, we are hopeful that with the progression of this year we will see some of our favorite forms of Disney entertainment return! I can say that I love the Cavalcades parading down the streets and waterways at the 4 theme parks! These surprise appearances of Characters and friendly faces are delightful moments that bring the magic each day! 

    We hope you enjoy your vacation, Shannon! If you have more questions before you depart, we would love to hear from you again at planDisney! We’re just a dream away
