There are plenty of attractions around Walt Disney World (and all Disney parks) that give tired feet a break from park touring. One of our favorites is Festival of the Lion King in Disney's Animal Kingdom. We did not experience this live musical show until 2011. We had always skipped it for no reason in particular other than we were off doing other things. After that first experience with the show, it made it to the top of our list of things to do in Walt Disney World.
When you enter Festival of the Lion King, guests sit in four sections around a center stage. The well known characters from The Lion King are portrayed by humans in elaborate African costumes, other than Timon, who portrays himself. If you know the songs from the movie, as well as the song The Lion Sleeps Tonight, you will be singing along with each and every one of them as the performers retell the story of Simba and how he became king through singing, dancing, acrobatics and more. Our favorite part of the show is by far the monkeys!
So if you are in Disney's Animal Kingdom and you are looking to take a break from park touring, I highly recommend you head to Camp Minnie-Mickey and see Festival of the Lion King. It is a great show, and gives you 30 minutes off your feet in an air conditioned theater. It is now on our "must do" list!
