One of the many things Disney does well is entertainment. The parades, fireworks, and shows that can be seen around the Disney Parks are world-class. Today we take a look at two of the best stage shows you can find at Walt Disney World, and they both happen to be in Disney’s Animal Kingdom!
Festival of the Lion King is on the must-do list for many families. It is a high energy show that gets kids and families involved in the action. With aerialists and acrobatics, it is sure to entertain even the smallest of visitors.
Festival of the Lion King is not your typical stage show. It doesn’t go through the entire story of The Lion King, rather it highlights the awesome music from the movie. Plus, it adds some more catchy tunes such as “The Lion Sleeps Tonight”. Each section of the theater will be assigned an animal by the hosts and will be called upon throughout the show to make the sound of their animal. It is a lot of fun. Performers include, bird aerialists, monkey acrobats and a fire baton twirler. Each act is entertaining and mesmerizing.
After seeing Festival of the Lion King, you will leave the theater in a great mood. We are excited to see if they will add anything to it once it moves to its new home. If you haven’t seen it, make it a priority on your next visit to Animal Kingdom! You won’t regret it!
