    Will be at WDW November 2016. Noticed that there are no times for the Festival of the Lion King show. Will this show be available or will it be closed during thanksgiving week. Please say it will be showing😬

    Hi Kathy,

    Good news! It looks like the Festival of the Lion King showtimes for November just posted on the Walt Disney World website. I'm so happy you will have the opportunity to see it during your visit to Animal Kingdom. It's such an engaging, fun show. 

    In my experience, the times for shows such as Festival of the Lion King often aren't released until about 90 days in advance, which still gives you plenty of time to plan for your FastPass+ choices. You can make FastPass+ reservations 60 days in advance if you are staying in a Walt Disney World resort. Other guests can make FastPass+ choices 30 days in advance.

    You will find so many new sights, sounds and tastes at Animal Kingdom this year -- entertainment, nighttime extras and the new Tiffins restaurant. Make sure you allow time to take it all in!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. We love helping guests plan their Walt Disney World vacations. Please let us know if we can answer any other questions for you.

    Enjoy your holiday,
