Camp Minnie Mickey and Festival of the Lion King close to make way for Avatar

Today was the final day to experience The Festival of the Lion King in its current location in Camp Minnie Mickey.  The show will have a new home in the more appropriate Africa section of Animal Kingdom later this year.  It was also the last day to experience the meet and greets with characters in the Camp Minnie Mickey area.  Both of these had to be closed to make way for the new Avatar land coming to Animal Kingdom.

No official opening date has been set for Avatar, but some rumors are pointing to a possible 2015 opening date.
