Fodor's Review

If you think you've seen enough Lion King to last a lifetime, you're wrong, unless you've seen this show. 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. Once located in the park's former Camp Minnie-Mickey land (which now is part of the under-construction Avatar land), the show has moved to the new Harambe Theater in the park's Africa area. For people with disabilities: Wheelchair and ECV accessible; equipped for assisted-listening and handheld-captioning devices; sign-language interpretation is sometimes offered. FastPass+ is now offered. Without one, 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.
