No Contest. Festival of the Lion King Is the best show out there.
This is a strange contest, pitting a grand but plodding spectacle against a small but scrappy comedy show. I enjoyed Lion King's acrobatics and stagecraft, but the show seemed to stagger under the weight of its own regal bigness. On the other hand, the Make-up Show offers the giddy pleasure of comics and craftsmen left alone to do what makes them laugh. The Make-up Show may be number two in this poll, but like Avis, it tries harder.
Really easy choices today. No heartbreak.
Love both, but will go with Lion King!!!
Two great shows, but this one is no contest. Festival and Fantasmic are the two best shows in Orlando.
I voted for the Horror Make Up Show, I haven't actually seen Festival of the Lion King, but have researched it and although it does look really good I think the horror make up show is really unique theme park entertainment and is something that both me and my boyfriend enjoy where I didn't succeed in persuading him to watch the Lion King
I'm still sticking with my favorite - the Horror Make-Up Show. I don't remember ever seeing Lion King, but I was never too keen on singing/musical performances.
duhhh....horror make up show deserves the vote way better than festival of the lion king, horror make up show is more interactive,outright funny, and is also set in a more intimate environment. My favorite part is when they tell the kid in the front row, "we're not at disney world.. we dont have to be nice to you.
