At Walt Disney World Resortthe Disney Meetings team creates magical moments every day that leave attendees feeling engaged and inspired. We are constantly looking for the latest and greatest way to provide incredible meeting and event experiences to event planners and their attendees. And, one way that our event designers orchestrate these memorable moments is through the creation of stunning themed event experiences that completely immerse attendees into a thematic dsetting based on a classic, beloved Disney film.

Today, we are sharing one of our latest featured event venues, Festival of the Lion King Gala Dinner.

Just a short trip away from the Disney convention resorts is Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park at Walt Disney World Resort. Nestled in the heart of the park is Festival of the Lion King, a high-energy show featuring joyous music, dance and specialty performances. During the day, guests are entertained with a Broadway-quality performance, making it Walt Disney World’s most popular show. However, at night, groups can utilize this immersive venue for a private gala dinner. 

From the moment attendees enter the event space, they are immersed into the Circle of Life and surrounded by the sights and sounds of Africa. Tables are adorned with natural, warm hues complete with palm leaf placemats, bamboo chairs, and exotic floral arrangements. 

Attendees will dine from a unique and personalized menu created to complement the tastes of Africa. Some of the customized course options include: wild greens and dried fruits with nuts and pomegranate-tarragon yogurt dressing, Kenya coffee-rubbed beef with mushroom sauce, tamarind BBQ pork wings, and petit amarula tea cake.

This dynamic venue can accommodate small groups. Specific event elements can be customized based on the group’s preference and budget. At Disney Meetings, we can help you meet your group's needs with the Hakuna Matata philosophy!

Let's see what makes a Festival of the Lion King Gala Dinner so memorable for attendees:
