Festival of the Lion King Review

If you think you've seen enough Lion King to last a lifetime, you're wrong, unless you've seen this show. In the air-conditioned theater-in-the-round, Disney presents a delightful tribal celebration of song, dance, and acrobatics that uses huge moving stages and floats. The show's singers are first-rate; lithe dancers wearing exotic animal-theme costumes portray creatures in the wild. Timon, Pumba, and other Lion King stars have key roles. For people with disabilities: The theater is accessible to people in wheelchairs. Sign-language interpretation is sometimes offered. Equipped for assisted-listening and handheld-captioning devices. Arrive 30–40 minutes before showtime. If you have a child who might want to go on stage, try to sit up front to increase his or her chance of getting chosen.

    Festival of the Lion King Review

    Vibrant, and Inovative, and Ambitious. Disney's best stage production by far!

    Four "African Tribal Performers" set the stange for this show that plays like a cross between a Broadway show, and and a Cirque Du Sole show. It can only get better, and it does. Stilt walkers, flame throwers, knife jugglers, acrobats in monkey suits, the spectaular songs, and even Timon the Meerkat make this show a must see! This truly is Disney's most ambitous and inovative stage production.
