    A poster over on WDWmagic is reporting that walls have gone up on the bridge leading into Harambe. Obviously this would be to block the view of construction. No pictures online yet.

    Looks like Mickey & Minnie are getting a new M&G spot too.

    Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse are scheduled to welcome Disney’s Animal Kingdom guests to their new exploration headquarters, Adventurers Outpost, on Discovery Island, beginning this spring. The all-new indoor retreat is the perfect spot for guests to meet the globetrotting duo as they get ready to set off on their next adventure.

    It's actually open. From what I understand it's got a cohesive theme and lots of props to look at while waiting.

    Festival Of The Lion King Moving Location

    It was announced today on Disney Parks Blog that the show Festival of the Lion King will be moving to the Africa section of the park! I think this is great news and also makes me start to wonder about Avatar land! Where abouts in Africa do you think the show is going to go?

    The new theater construction has been going on behind the Dawa Bar in Africa for a few months now.

    It was sort of like the Powhatan tribe had a killer "Community Theater".

    That may be your opinion, but the overall opinion of the attraction is a positive one so....

    Yes, it is one of my favorite shows in Disney and my daughter loves it. My son also liked it very much.

    The characters are so personable too, I remember the first time we went the one came up to my kids when they were not doing anything and shook their hands, waved hi, etc. My kids were only a little over 1 at the time, so it was awesome that they got to meet them up close like that.

    So....what? Are you implying that my opinion is wrong because I don't agree with the majority? I personally don't find ethnic stereotyping (the 4 singers playing folksy, jolly Africans) or parade floats stuck in a building entertaining, and neither does my son (who otherwise loves LK). I was aghast the first time we saw it and the shorter, heavier woman was the one stuck making the warthog sounds.

    It's LK and the only thing to do (currently) in that corner of the park, of course it's going to be popular. While I doubt they would consider the investment, I would love them to redo the show to be a condensed version of the Broadway show, which is my favorite behind Rent and Les Mis. Might be redundant w/ Finding Memo, but I think it would step up the cultural value of the show infinitely.

    ^ Geeez guy... it's Walt Disney World, the whole damn place is one big stereotype after another. That is why people like to vacation there, as they are not forced to discern nuanced ideas.

    I would like to remind everyone that Cast Members and Team Members read these boards and take great offense sometimes with the negative comments.

    And we call the show FOLK! One word just like its spelled. No FOTLK not LK. Just Folk.
