Dancers, acrobats, singers, and costumed characters celebrate The Lion King in this musical performance in-the-round. No, it's not the Broadway show, or even an abridged retelling of the movie plot. But it's a lovely, rousing concert that tries to get the audience cheering, and often succeeds. Do plan to line up 20-60 minutes before showtime (depending upon how busy the park is that day) to be seated. If you've visited Disney World before, note that Festival of the Lion King is playing in a new theater in the Africa section of the park now, as the old theater was torn down to make room for the Avatar construction.
