LAKE BUENA VISTA –
Sunday is the last day to visit Camp Minnie-Mickey at Disney’s Animal Kingdom and see the Festival of the Lion King.
The area closes at the end of business today, and Festival of the Lion King will go on hiatus until a new theater in the Africa section of the park is ready later this year.
Festival of the Lion King was the only major attraction in the Camp Minnie-Mickey section. Mickey and Minnie themselves moved to Discovery Island earlier this year.
The move fuels speculation that Disney will build the new Avatar Land at the Camp Minnie-Mickey site, but Disney will not confirm that.
Disney gave a sneak peek at Avatar Land at a D-23 Expo in Japan in October.
The land will feature a simulator ride that lets guests feel like they’re riding a Banshee, and guests will able to walks through a bioluminescent jungle.
