THEATER IN THE WILD
In 1998, Theater in the Wild opened its doors and has been home to three big Disney shows at the Animal Kingdom parc.
Originally , it was an open-air amphitheater and its debut was with the show Journey into the Jungle Book, a 30-minute stage show with Mowgli, Baloo and King Louie retelling the story with songs.
Then in July 1999, Tarzan Rocks! took over the theater. It was a spectacular musical with dancers, singers and gymnasts with all the characters and music of the movie. I remember seeing this show myself in my second trip to WDW (I don’t remember much of my first as I was quite young).
Now, the theater is home to the Finding Nemo- The Musical, a musical with amazing costumed, transporting the guest to the undersea adventure.
No plans as to what is going to be the next show to take over the theater, but continuing the tradition, it will be amazing when the time comes.
