Apr 10, 2013 in "Festival of the Lion King"

Nearly the complete left-side of Africa in Disney's Animal Kingdom is now walled off as construction begins on building the new Festival of the Lion King theater. The relocation of the theater from Camp Minnie-Mickey to Africa is part of the expansion plans for Animal Kingdom, which have so far been based around the AVATAR project announcement. It is expected that the show will continue to be performed in Camp Minnie Mickey until the new theater is ready, minimizing any downtime for the popular show.
