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. The show is presented in the 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 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.
