Wow - this a tough one. 2 very different but very good shows. I think I'll have to give my vote to FOTLK as it's a great combination of effects, costume, live performance etc and features some of Disney's very best music.
This was possibly the easiest vote of the tournament so far for me. Festival of the Lion King was the pleasant surprise of the trip on our last Walt Disney World visit. My entire family agreed it was a far more impressive show than we anticipated. Believe, on the other hand, disappointed me. I didn't like the film portion and didn't think the rest of the show was anything all that groundbreaking or exciting.
FOTLK: Live performance much better. Disney's best music very entertaining and a Broadway stly show. Believe to much movie time is spent in this show.
"Believe" may be a great show but I'm leaning towards the one that's never killed anyone.
Festival of the Lion King has it all: Music, Singing, Acrobatics, and Disney Characters!
Lion King, no questions asked. As I've mentioned previously, unlike some of Disney's live shows, there is never a lag or awkward transitional period in FOTLK. It flows very naturally. Believe, conversely, has too much downtime (and not to mention too much sap).
I have to put a comment in for Believe.
Sea world messed up the Shamu show with Believe. Like the previous posters have said too much downtime, movie, sappiness, and not enough whale in the show. Lion King is fun and i voted for it obviously but if it was the old Shamu Adventure show i would have gone with that.
