We’re Celebrating 30 Years of the Lion King!

June 27, 2024 By Magically Martinez Vacations Inc.

In early June Disney kicked off a special 30th anniversary celebration for the theatrical release of “The Lion King” at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. This celebration will run in the parks from early June until September 6th.

The park’s celebration offerings will include character meet n greets, special themed food, drinks and brand-new Lion King themed merchandise.

During this celebration Disney’s Animal Kingdom will also be offering some sweet treats including a Simba Paw Cookie, You Follow Old Rafiki Cheesecake, the Remember Who You Are dessert (see below).

Tiffins will offer a Remember Who You Are coffee mousse. Eight Spoons will be celebrating with a mango-flavored slushy combined with grenadine and  topped with gummy worms, called the Simba. The Isle of Java will feature the Timon’s Luau a trifle type dessert filled with vanilla chiffon, a passion fruit curd, guava jam, Chantilly cream and an edible flower. There will also be a Zazu Ice Cream Sandwich that can be found at Tamu Tamu refreshments.

For those of us who won’t be visiting the parks during this fabulous celebration we can Bring the Magic Homewith some fun filled family activities.

Our little lions enjoyed a cool down in the local watering hole.

We channeled our inner Tumble Monkey with some acrobatics in the back yard!

We made our own Simba Slushies.

We enjoyed a grilled chicken dinner fit for a laughing hyena.

We ended the night with Pumbaa Popcorn and a family watch party of “The Lion King.”

We hope you enjoy celebrating The Lion King as much as we did!
