More Live Entertainment Returns To Walt Disney World Today!
BREAKING NEWS! It was just announced that more live entertainment returns to the Walt Disney World Resort starting in August. After shows being closed for over a year, it’s finally time to bring back some of the perennial favorite live entertainment including such shows as Beauty and the Beast Live On Stage, as well as the interactive attractions
including The Laugh Floor just to name a few. A Celebration of Festival of the Lion King was the first of the live entertainment to reopen and as we head into the 50th anniversary celebrating of Walt Disney World starting on October 1, the magic is coming back. It’s been really great this summer to once again gather in the Harambe Theatre at Disney’s
Animal Kingdom Theme Park for “A Celebration of Festival of the Lion King” and to feel our hearts soar with the sight of fireworks in the skies over Magic Kingdom Park and EPCOT. Disney is continuing to work on bringing even more entertainment experiences back to Walt Disney World Resort, and today I’m thrilled to let you know about four other favorites returning soon.
Starting August 1, Disney will be lighting up the night at Disney’s Hollywood Studios with the return of “Wonderful World of Animation.” This cinematic nighttime experience leverages projection mapping technology to transform the park’s iconic Chinese Theater on a magical journey through more than 90 years of Disney animation.
On August 15, live entertainment returns as a tale as old as time will return to Theater of the Stars on Sunset Boulevard with “Beauty and the Beast – Live on Stage.” The heartwarming tale of Belle and Beast will once again swirl to life in this lush stage performance, with colorful costumes, gorgeous scenery, and the songs you know and love.
We’re also excited to share that you’ll soon be able to visit those monsters of comedy in Monstropolis and chat with a certain sea turtle at The Seas with Nemo & Friends. Mike Wazowski will begin welcoming humans to the Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor at Magic Kingdom Park on August 8. And beginning August 21, you can get your most pressing questions answered during Turtle Talk with Crush at EPCOT. Duuuude!
We also recently shared with you that all-new nighttime spectaculars “Disney Enchantment” and “Harmonious” would be debuting October 1 as part of The World’s Most Magical Celebration. That means this summer is also your last chance to
come out and catch the current fireworks shows before they sparkle into Disney history. “EPCOT Forever” will conclude its limited-time run on September 28, and you have until September 29 to take in the spectacle of “Happily Ever After” at Magic Kingdom Park.
There’s much more to come as they continue building toward the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World Resort and beyond, so tuned right here for the latest on more live entertainment being added soon What is your favorite live entertainment at Walt Disney World?
