    No time table has been set. Once the building and area are ready to be moved into, the current theater will be closed. The show will go down for about 3-4 weeks to move all of the equipment and costumes to the new theater and for blocking rehearsals to figure out the new space and the show will open back up again. I'm gonna guess January or February. I don't believe any changes will be made to the existing show in the move.

    That's correct 6 months after so I'm guessing early July 2014.

    I love the show and couldn't care less about the 'stereotypes,' perhaps your reading a little too much into it.

    Orlando theme park news had some interesting photos of the new construction areas for Fotlk. Could be connected with the nighttime show

    ^ Thanks. Sadly, those pictures are taken without context, so while I think I know what I am looking at, it would have been helpful to have some wide shots that showed existing structures relative to the project. I take it that one side of the Africa bridge is completely walled off?

    So I'm preparing myself for a Summer 2014 Disney ad campaign advertising the BRAND NEW Lion King show at Animal Kingdom. Sigh...

    The theater is located behind Tusker House Restaurant. That's the only nearby building...

    Sorry if late to the game... but I just found this after recalling the lawsuits that ensued. This is the absolute original Lion Sleeps Tonight. You only hear a hint of the melody at the end... as if improvised live. Incredible stuff.

    Slick lookin dudes for the 1930's Africa or anywhere for that matter.

    I hope some of you are hearing it for the first time. I feel like an idiot that I hadn't.

    I'm told one of the floats at the 4pm show had a small electrical fire causing them to halt the show and empty the building.
