The Circle of Life at Epcot’s The Land Pavilion is now closed for a nearly two month refurbishment.
The refurbishment began on February 7th. The show is scheduled to be closed through April 2nd, reopening to guests on April 3rd.
Disney has not released any information on what work is being done, but with a refurbishment of Soarin’ also underway, there is speculation that the time is right to replace the 1995 movie with something new. Disney has a possible update in the wings, with the hugely successful Lion Guard animated TV series.
The Circle of Life is a 20 minute 70mm movie film that teaches conservation with Timon and Pumbaa from the Lion King.
