Best Show at Walt Disney World! on 4/24/2013 by Disneydonna
Whatever you do, do not miss the Festival of the Lion King show at Animal Kingdom. This is my absolute favorite show on property. It has lots of acrobats, music, larger than life animatronics, floats, and participation opportunities for the kiddos. I could watch this show over and over again.

Great show; love the fire dude! on 10/11/2005 by Ser Alan

The pre-show is pretty amusing, nobody seems to know how to make Giraffe noises... makes me laugh every single time! The fire eating guy is great and the other performances are quite good as well. Still, you really have to see the original Cirque to get the full experience!!
