Disney Bounding for the new Lion King movie

Last week a group of us met at Disney's Animal Kingdom for a Disney bound to celebrate the upcoming live-action Lion King movie!

Knowing it was going to be hot (it's July afterall!), we decided to go for a more casual look. We took photos at park opening around the Africa area on the park, but we seemed to really like the new wall that went up two weeks ago. It translates to "Can you feel the love tonight?"

Our photographer for this shoot was Dean Powell of Everyday Moments Photographer. 

The entire group with the Tree of Life in the back!

Below are individual pics.  I have tagged each person's Instagram accounts.

When I do a Disney Bound, I first pick an overall color scheme to match the character, and then add in accessories. My usual "go to" stores for bounding are Target, JCP, Marshalls and Etsy.  I try not to spend more than $10 to 20 on accessories, and I try to pick pieces of clothing I know I will wear again. (If you are interested, here are some past bounds I have done at Walt Disney World: Dumbo, Princess Anna, Iago from Aladdin, Winnie the Pooh)

Here's the details for this Timon outfit:

Relaxed tee in Orange: Target
Wide Leg Linen Pants: Liz Claiborne at JCP
Beads: Extras by O via Etsy
Woven Straw Bangle: Target
Timon Bracelet: Eerie & Enchanting via Etsy


By the way, keep an eye out for lots of new Lion King inspired desserts. I found this adorable Paw Print Peanut Butter cupcake at Art of Animation Resort
