There were some announcements involving Walt Disney World in this weekend’s D23. Instead of doing a bunch of individual posts, I thought it was better to go through each park and the announcements associated with that park.
Last week I posted the above picture and asked for guesses as to where it is located. While there were some great guesses, this one proved to be a little difficult.
Another restaurant in Disney World has a reopening date and it’s a popular one in Animal Kingdom. Disney has announced that Tusker House will be reopening on June 20.
Today is the official reopening date of Festival of the Lion King at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. They have been doing some soft opening performances lately, but as of today it is officially open, which is making a lot of guests (myself included) very happy.
The Animation Experience is where guests can learn to draw different Disney characters. When I went we drew Simba and my drawing actually looked like Simba! If you had seen other drawings I’ve done you’d understand why the end result was exciting.
The Tree of Life Awakenings happen every night at Animal Kingdom. It’s a show that is projected onto the Tree of Life.
Rafiki’s Planet Watch in Animal Kingdom has been closed for a while now, but Disney has announced an opening date for this area. It had closed down for some refurbishment, so it will be interesting to see what changes were made.
This weekend a couple of new shows will debut in Animal Kingdom. One is an updated version of an existing show and the other is a celebration of a soon-to-be-released movie.
“Rivers of Light” is Animal Kingdom’s nighttime show that has been around for more than two years now. It’s a beautiful show and this May it will be getting an update.
Disney is always coming up with new experiences for guests to try during their trip. The newest experience will take guests on a train ride in Animal Kingdom.
