While much of the world might know Caleb McLaughlin as one of the stars of the NETFLIX hit series ‘Stranger Things’, ten years ago he made his Broadway debut as Young Simba in Broadway’s award-winning musical “The Lion King.” He actually held his role for two years in the immensely popular stage show, which makes it all the more of a full circle career moment that the former “The Lion King” star posed for a photo with Rafiki at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park in Lake Buena Vista, Fla during a visit last month.

Caleb also posted a few other photos from his trip, which included other Walt Disney World Parks, like The Magic Kingdom. You definitely can’t visit Disney World without a stop by Cinderella’s castle, right? What are some of your favorite spots to drop by when you go to Disney World? The Animal Kingdom is definitely one of our faves — especially Pandora. We LOVE the Flight of Passage ride, and the Na’vi River Journey is also a really visually stunning and soothing experience too!

Did you guys know that Caleb was a professionally trained dancer in ballet, jazz and tap? Definitely makes sense why he knocked it out of the park in “The New Edition Story”.

Caleb’s most recent social media post showed him getting active in the gym, showing off his boxing and martial arts skills. He’s definitely in great shape!
