There’s nothing we love more than classic Disney movies — and The Lion King is definitely at the top of our list. From touching moments between Mufasa and Simba to learning all about “Hakuna Matata” with Timon and Pumbaa, we can’t wait to relive these magic moments with our kids. Show us how you’re spending your Lion King-themed weekend with the hashtag #DisneyWeekend on Instagram.

We also put together all the food and decor your family needs for a fun Lion King-themed birthday or viewing party. It’s essential to start with a colorful leaf garland. But why not take it to the next level? Set the scene with a terrarium. Then print out easy-to-make king-of-the-jungle crowns for all the kids, and serve up Timon and Pumbaa’s ice cream parfaits for dessert!
