There are few movies that stick with you over time and for me, The Lion King is one cinematic experience I still remember 20+ years later. Released originally in 1994, Disney is about to debut a remake that will undoubtedly capture the hearts of a whole new generation!

I also know that with a new Disney release, Lion King Birthday parties and baby showers will be popping up everywhere, so I’ve compiled a list of the best party supplies, decorations, games, food and activity ideas so you can throw a roaring good Lion King Party of your own!
