It was a bit quieter, but still an interesting week for Disney. Not much news, but you know how that goes…. it comes in waves it seems. Nonetheless, we still got some news. So here we go, here is your Disney news for this week.

Weekly Roundup: Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom News

Here’s what you can expect in this post:

  • Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom
  • Festival of the Lion King
  • Become a Disney Travel Planner

Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom

You may already know, but Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom came to a close yesterday, Sunday, January 24, 2020. Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom was an interactive game attraction for the Magic Kingdom that debuted on February 22, 2012 that kids of all ages enjoyed. I know my kids have been enjoying it all eight years. An eight year run is not too bad, so I guess it was time. As we say about anything to do with Disney, we are sad to see it go, but excited for what is to come. I am sure, knowing Disney, they have something fun up their sleeve…. maybe. šŸ˜‰ What would you like to see in its place?

Festival of the Lion King

Secondly, Disney World announced last week that more entertainment will be coming back to the Animal Kingdom this summer! The Festival of the Lion King is one of our all time faves, so we are so excited to see it come back to one of our fave parks, Animal Kingdom! Of course, there will be modifications made in order to maintain social distancing for both guests and entertainment to insure everyone stays safe. Safety first, always is the Disney way.

We can’t wait to see what other entertainment and attractions will be coming back next. Disney World is slowly, very slowly, getting back to normal….. whatever normal is. Let me know if you find out what normal is. I need to know! What would you like to see come back next? I think I would really love to see Finding Nemo come back to Animal Kingdom next. It is such a colorful and beautiful show, I would not mind seeing it come back at all.
