Tale of the Lion King - Don't miss it!

The Storytellers of the Pride Lands

    Tale of the Lion King                                       

This show is near the Little Mermaid ride, across the water from Pixar Pier.  Get there early to get a good seat - there are benches, stairs, the ground and some standing areas.  Kids and their families can sit on the stairs.  There's a part of the show where they pull kids out of the audience.

The show is absolutely worth the wait!  It was so good!
It was hot and uncomfortable while waiting - I missed a bench by 30 seconds!
But it was totally worth it!  The show is awesome!
The Storytellers are amazing and do a fabulous job.









 
 This was my view - the girl in front of me had a cute Lion King hoodie - it blocked a bit, but she got there first!  Sometimes you've got to deal with things like that.  :)
The story is a shortened version of the movie. 
 It's 23 minutes long, and they tell all the necessary parts of the story. 

From the moment they started dancing down the ramp to the stage we were enthralled.

"Circle of Life"

Mwongozo ("Guide" in Swahili) and Simba
Mufasa, Mwongozo and Simba

Mwongozo, Simba and Scar

 "I Just Can't Wait To Be King" and "Be Prepared" are sung together - and it works!
There is no Zasu - Scar does his lines in "I Just Can't Wait To Be King".
