Disney's Animal Kingdom News Round-Up for March 13: Theater Construction Beginning Soon?
Festival of the Lion King Theater Construction to Begin Soon?: It appears, at least from the world of “unnamed sources”, that construction on the new permanent theater for the Festival of the Lion King should begin any day now. We have said this a few times before, but if this timing is correct I believe it to be good news for Animal Kingdom fans. Many were worried construction of the new “Avatar-Land” where Camp Minnie-Mickey now stands would spell the end of the popular stage show. But instead, it looks like Festival of the Lion King is here to stay. Let’s hope the show gets a bigger and better theater.
While I generally don’t like to trade in the rumor mill on the News Round-Up, with this being a slow news week I figured I would pass info along.
Early Risers Take Note of Another Potential Sunrise Safari: A quick peek at the park hours for next week shows us that Disney Resorts guests will have the opportunity to see Kilimanjaro Safari at 7am. If you are an early riser, this might be a good day to put DAK into your schedule. Also, with the change of the clocks, sunrise is later so even the upcoming days with a normal 8am opening offers nearly the same opportunity.
These early morning safaris are often incredible as the animals can be very active, even those perpetually exhausted lions!
Park Hours for this week are...
Wednesday: Mar 13 8am - 8pm (Extra Magic Hour 7-8am)
Thursday: Mar 14 8am - 8pm
Friday: Mar 15 8am - 7pm
Saturday: Mar 16 9am - 8pm
Sunday: Mar 17 9am - 7pm
Monday: Mar 18 9am - 7pm (Extra Magic Hour 8-9am)
Tuesday: Mar 19 9am - 7pm
