Disney's Festival of the Lion King brings the familiar characters of Disney's film "The Lion King" to the stage at Disney's Animal Kingdom located at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. Disney Characters Timon, Simba, Pumbaa, Rafiki, Zazu, Mufasa team up with a traveling band of "African tribal performers" to tell the tale of a lion cub who can't wait to be king. During the Festival of the Lion King show, you're encouraged to be part of the action. Each of the 4 sections around the stage takes turns acting like a giraffe, a warthog, a lion or an elephant. Guests are asked to make a noise corresponding to their animal at certain times during the show. The show is hosted by Kiume, Nakawa, Kibibi, and Zawadi. Aerobatics are performed by the Tumble Monkeys, a group of performers dressed in orange monkey costumes. The show features the award-winning music from the movie, written by Elton John and Tim Rice.
