Disney Parks celebrate the return of ‘The Lion King: Rhythms of the Pride Lands’

An amazing fan-favorite show based on a classic Disney film from the 1990s has just returned to Disneyland Paris for Guests’ enjoyment and viewing entertainment. The park is proud to announce the return of The Lion King: Rhythms of the Pride Lands, which saw its first return performance on October 23.

The show, inspired by Disney’s The Lion King, was so popular, so loved and so missed by Guests at the Disneyland Paris Resort, that Disney celebrated with a pre-recorded virtual viewing of the show back in May for fans who really missed the show and couldn’t wait for its return. The recording was made available to fans any time they wanted to experience the show again, even if it wasn’t available to them at the park at the time.

The show is absolutely stellar and will have Guests jumping to their feet, moving to the tribal beats and cheering for more! Just take a look:

With magnificent, vibrant costumes, pageantry, and music like only Disney can produce, it’s no wonder why this show was such a favorite of Guests at the park and why they were so sad to see it unavailable!

The show is fabulous and reminds us of another fan-favorite show, also based on the beloved story of Mufasa, Simba, Nala, Scar, Timon and Pumbaa. Guests who experience The Festival of the Lion King Broadway-style show at Disney’s Animal Kingdom at Walt Disney World walk away wowed, with a kick in their step and a greater appreciation for the story of The Lion King.

Festival of the Lion King

Like The Lion King: Rhythms of the Pride Lands, Disney World’s The Festival of the Lion King also saw its demise as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, and Guests are thrilled about the return of both!

About Becky Burkett

I'm an enthusiastic writer who finds joy in random things like cold weather, snow, "I Love Lucy," "The Andy Griffith Show," journals full of blank paper, countdowns to Christmas, the month of December, "Toy Story," "Sleeping Beauty," my 4 kids, my 4 shih tsus, Disney Parks history, Imagineering and visiting the parks. I think Walt Disney is the standard against which genius should be measured. I love to write about Disney Parks, Disney history, all things Imagineering and PIXAR. I adore the colors, story and art direction of Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" (Team Make it Blue!), and "Toy Story" is life (minus "Toy Story 4"). I believe Walt Disney was so much more than an entertainment and theme park tycoon; I believe he was a savant with a vision for life and how it could be if happiness and kindness are strived for. I love Biergarten at EPCOT and 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian. You can find me croonin' with the birdies at the Enchanted Tiki Room, chillin' on the PeopleMover or hangin' with Woody and the gang at Toy Story Land. I'm always looking for Imagineers in the parks, and I'd rather meet Joe Rohde and Tony Baxter than anyone in Hollywood! Hey, if you dream it, you really can do it!
