MUSIC! DANCE! FLOATS! ATHLETICS! EXCITEMENT! It’s hard to find all of these things anywhere but at Disney’s Animal Kingdom they are presented many times daily in The Festival of the Lion King (FOTLK) in the Camp Minnie-Mickey area. This is one of three or four things that draw me back to the Animal Kingdom on each visit. Even though we spend only a very short time there we never miss the FOTLK.
Visitors are seated in four different areas in the round and prior to the show actually beginning each group becomes a herd of animals who, on queue, make the appropriate animal noises. If you don’t want to be part of the show don’t sit up front but if you do, get as close to the front as possible and be very enthusiastic.
Once the show starts prepare yourself for a pageant of activity built around the magic of the music of The Lion King. If you are looking for a quiet rest from the activity of Walt Disney World, this is not the place to be. You can’t help but be drawn into the show because everything that happens just grabs your attention and holds it throughout the performance. After the show is over you will know that you have seen something that could only come from the minds of the Disney Imagineers.
Take the time to see the FOTLK, you will be rewarded for your efforts. The theater is Air Conditioned and comfortable. I bet that once you see it you will go back again and again. As always, enjoy your visit to Walt Disney World!!
