I wasn't sure what to expect being a giant Disney fan - but from the word go, you travel into a magical world of dance, and song. The amazing costumes, stage and acting keep you engaged the entire time. An absolutely amazing time! It really is a magical theater experience.

The performances dance and song, were brilliant and kept us entertained the entire time. My eyes were consistently fixated on the stage, except for the times that the actors - as animals - paraded off stage. It was a dream chance to feel as though we were part of the cast itself, and to see the costumes up close. This... More

We loved everything about this show from the costumes and dancing to the singing and set. Being a Disney production, the theater was filled with kids, but they were so well behaved--I think they were truly mesmerized! Being a theater person I tend to like the mezz level, but this show calls for orchestra seating for sure! If you can... More

This show has got the most spectacular music and costumes. The drummer on the left hand side of the stage had such enthusiasm for his craft, even asked us all afterwards if we had enjoyed the show. He got an ovation of his own for his performance. The theatre itself is also spectacular and offers views of Broadway. Go along... More

Choose only this Broadway show for our USA trip and am very happy we make the right choice. The cast, sets, music, ambience are all perfect. Audience are very encouraging to applaud after every act. Some pleasant surprises when actors come from the back and through the aisles.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
