Florida Holiday Inn Wakes Up Spring Breakers By Blasting 'Lion King' Soundtrack Every Morning

Study, eat, party, sleep, repeat. It's the circle of (college) life.

In honor of that cycle, a Holiday Inn in Florida's Panama City Beach has developed a unique method of welcoming the annual swell of spring breakers intent on partying in its walls: Every morning at 11 a.m., the hotel blasts "The Circle of Life," the unmistakable theme song from Disney's 1994 classic, "The Lion King," encouraging guests to shake off any Scar-worthy hangovers and greet the world.

The soaring Elton John song is ideally suited to revive weary revelers, who respond by dutifully stepping onto their balconies and singing along as best they can.

Holiday Inn Marketing Director Philip Corvin told WJHG they first started playing the song in 2012 and never expected it would be so popular.

"It's the best thing ever," spring breaker Jessica Young told the outlet. "Every morning when we wake up we look forward to it -- it's like an entire Panama City Beach Holiday Inn family just singing together."

Non college-aged guests needn't worry: "We only do this for spring break," Colvin told ABC News.

In that case, Hakuna matata!
