    What's the best (least crowded) time to watch the Lion King show at Animal Kingdom? I'm considering having an early breakfast, then catching the first show. Does it really matter how early you get there for the best seat?

    It's an amazing show.  Festival of the Lion King it lasts about 25 minutes. It's a great start of your day.  The theater is circular. Each section of the circle has a set of bleachers and is divided into 4 sections. We were in the elephant section, but you could end up a warthog, lion, elephant or giraffe.  Beware, you may be selected to demonstrate the sound of your section.  Rather hysterical, actually.  We were in the second row, and my boys couldn't see. For whatever reason, the higher bleachers seemed to have the better view. We went up to the 7th row and it was perfect.  Try to get there about 20 - 30 minutes before the first show. 

    It's incredible.  I can't wait to see it again!!  Hope you have a great time!! Heather M.
