While I'm not one for shows, this is one of the exceptions. There is fire, gymnastics and the wonderful music. Truly wonderful.

Awesome show, one of Disney's best. The performance is very cool, the scenery is beautiful and the universe of the Lion King is nicely represent. A lot of acrobats and singers with a lot of talent perform there. This show is a must!

A great live show with a lot of singers, acrobats + other performers, big puppets and floats, plus some audience participation. It all adds up to a very entertaining show.

Easily the best show at Disney! The diversity and interactivity of the show is in a league of its own. There is everything in it from top of the line singing to fire dancers to acrobats. Kids will love the songs from the Lion King and dancing along, theres actually a part in the finale that the cast actually pulls children from the audience to play instruments on stage. Anyone else will be engaged in the amazing stunts and incredible live vocalists. I recommend that you see this right before you plan to leave the park, its a perfect way to cap off the end of your day at Animal Kingdom!!!

I found the different elements of the show very entertaining, although I question whether the pacing is too slow. They also seemed to have no plausible reason for the audience interaction but wanted to do it anyway. The acrobatics and dance were very well executed, the costumes were very well done, and the performers certainly had good singing voices. "I Just Can't Wait to be King" is misused for Simba's entrance (as the float is of the adult Simba), but young children in particular, who would I think have enjoyed the show anyway, will be very pleased to see that character and others from The Lion King. If performers such as acrobats are not your cup of tea, I would not necessarily rule out this show for you; those of you who like upbeat shows in general will have a good time.

This in my opinion is the best live show at Disney. It is almost like watching a cirque de solei performance with the acrobats and such. The whole audience gets to participate also which is fun. Do not miss this show. Overall rating 5.0

When I herad this show is the best show in the entire Walt Disney World I am really looking forward to it. But I ended up falling asleep during the show. I am not really into the mokey acrobats or fire torch trick, and neither am I the fan of those songs in the lion king. To me the two brid-like perfomers dancing is probably the best part of the show, but I found the arocbats between Tarzan and his girl friend in the show "Tarzan Rocks"(also in Animal Kingdom) is a lot more breathtaking and aesthetic. I have to say this show is a lot trageted to the kids and children as far as I am concerned. If you like disney song this is probably your choise of the best concert show, but unfortunetly I dont really care about the songs.

Excellent show-- I have heard rumors that most of the show is inspired by portions of the actual Broadway show. The theater the show takes place in is somewhat small which is a positive because it makes the show all the more intimate and close to you.
