It’s finally here! Disneyland Paris guests can enjoy roaring new entertainment, merchandise and dining all summer long for The Lion King & Jungle Festival. This immersive experience brings together two beloved Disney masterpieces for an unforgettable adventure now through September 22.
To quote the fearsome Scar, “be prepared” to jump to the beat of the African savannah and the Indian jungle with two spectacular new shows: “The Lion King: Rhythms of the Pride Lands” and “The Jungle Book Jive.” The first is a new twist on the famous music with original routines performed by singers, dancers, acrobats and drummers, while the other is an original creation celebrating “The Jungle Book” with new parade floats, music and favorite Disney characters.
Even more fun awaits during Timon’s “MataDance!” in Adventureland with special appearances from Timon and Pumbaa, as well as in the new Djembe Joy Village featuring an introduction to the traditional djembe drums and interactions with the legendary King Louie from “The Jungle Book.”
The world of The Lion King & Jungle Festival takes the food and beverage experience at Disneyland Paris to a new level with exotic options that explorers tall and small can enjoy. Plenty of sweet treats inspired by these Disney classics are available throughout the park, plus the Hakuna Matata restaurant serves up African-inspired dishes and encounters with Rafiki and Mickey in special explorer outfits.
To cap off a magical visit, guests can choose from more than 100 new themed products available in stores, with The Curious Giraffe in Adventureland sporting the biggest selection. The park has everything from Simba-inspired fashions to a limited edition figurine of the young hero created by world-famous artist and sculptor Richard Orlinski.
your chance at a swinging good time only at Disneyland Paris this summer!
