Hands down! Cirque de soleil has been closed, so just go and see this! It’s like going to the circus with all the acrobats and the music and the talent involved! It’s amazing, so fun and refreshing to watch and honestly believe the whole family would enjoy, adults and children! Rarely long waits for this one either just get there when it’s show time. It’s a must do and in my opinion the best show (apart from happily ever after) at Disney World!

If there is one thing in Animal Kingdom that you really shouldn’t miss then this is it. We’ve seen it many times but it still keeps us enthralled. The show is situated in a huge auditorium and it takes place in the round. It used to be in Camp Minnie Mickey, but since Avatar replaced it you can now find it in the Harambe Theatre in Africa. It has everything - wonderful music and singing, huge animatronic animals, acrobatics, stilt walkers, trampolinists, exotic and colourful costumes and aerial dancing. It’s not a retelling of the Lion King, it’s a celebration with Simba and many of his friends. I love seeing the huge animatronic Lion, Elephant, Giraffe and Wart Hog as they enter from each side on moving platforms. There are lots of familiar songs, such as. ‘I Just Can’t Wait to be King’ and my personal favourite, ‘ Can You Feel the Love Tonight.’ This is performed by acrobats in bird costumes, and is really beautiful and poignant. It’s very popular, and so you really need to get there early to secure your seat. It’s well worth seeing.

Great live show with lots of action. Dancing, singing, acrobats, it has a little bit of everything. Wheelchair seating is limited, and the lines are long, even with a fast pass. While other live shows at the parks closely follow the plot line of the movie, this one does not. Yes, there is are elements of the Lion King movie, but it is rather limited. Still a great show, not to be missed while at this park. You can see that the performers are really giving it their all, and it shows. I really like the close proximity and size of the performances, it's probably the closest I have ever been seated in a live show.

This is an Animal Kingdom must see. The acrobatics, fire show, interaction, and singing were all spectacular. We loved all the colorful costumes and action. I would definitely go again.
