These are the Best Spots to see Lion King Characters at Disney
Hakuna Matata! A phrase we all know thanks to the beloved Disney Classic “The Lion King.” A beautiful movie of the circle of life and the bond of family. With such popularity and adoration from audiences, the Lion King characters are loved so much. But where can you meet them? Well, my Disney fans, the details are below:
Meet the Lion King Characters…
Simba – the Lion King himself
Simba has never really greeted his fans and at this time can only be seen in live theatrical performances and Disney on Ice. You can see topiary variations of him and photos in the Animal Kingdom at Disney Orlando and as part of parades while travelling through the parks.
The most lovable meerkat does meet and greets for the most part in Shanghai Disney and has been seen in Adventureland in California. In Orlando there have been very rare sightings of him in Animal Kingdom. We literally missed him by a smidgen as he had to depart after meeting so many people. He has also been seen in parades, shows, and Disney on Ice productions.
The fat and fun warthog nowadays sticks to Disney on Ice, parade floats, live theatre, and the odd Cruise line cameo. Sadly, he is not available for meet and greets in any of the parks.
The pesky laughing dogs that live near the elephant skeletons are only seen in parade dance sequences. They can be seen in Disney on Ice shows, but sadly they do not meet their fans.
The backstabbing evil uncle lion only appears in Disney on Ice productions at this time. Check the dates of their next shows and enjoy a fun evening of magic that only Disney knows how to create.
The ever popular baboon is the most readily available of the Lion King characters. He can be met daily in Orlando’s Animal Kingdom near the Tree of Life. He does frequent appearances in Adventureland in Disneyland Paris and has been sighted in California at the Plaza Inn character breakfast.
This is the extent of Lion King characters that have made appearances or who continue to meet their public. Hopefully on your next trip you will meet the Lion King characters that are your favourites!
