When does Lion King close? :(

Anyone know?

Is it likely to be moved and reopened?

To my knowledge Disney hasn't officially said exactly where Avatar is going so those type of things, from credible sources or not, still rumors. I suppose if construction begins in 2013 like they initially said we'll know soon enough where it will be and have a better idea if it will be a true addition or will involve replacing existing areas, shows, or attractions.

Hope Lion King stays.This was our favorite experience at AK last month besides the Safari. Waited in line for 45 minutes on the heat, at least there were big fans going. Think of Broadway meets Cirque du Soliel, but short enough to meet everyone' s attention span. Perfect for the whole family including wheelchair access.

I'm still living in hope that this is a horrible rumour and it will still be open next August. If lion king & beauty and the beast are both closed my wife won't be worth speaking to!

Definitely one of our favourite attractions in the whole of Disney World

The last that anyone has heard, Avatarland has been delayed, so I don't think anyone needs to worry about the Lion King show in the near future. It is also possible it could be moved to a new site if Avatarland goes into where Camp Minnie and Mickey is located.

Here is what was reported a couple of months ago:

A lot of people, myself included, are hoping Avatar land is really dead. In any event, even if it is only dormant, I can't see anything happening before next summer, since there is apparently no agreement as to what is even going to be in Avatar land let alone where it will be.
