    How and when can I book Lion King show as been told don't waste a fast pass or dinning reservation, Thank You

    Hello Amanda, and thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I am so excited to hear that you are already planning a wonderful visit to the Walt Disney World Resort next spring. The Festival of the Lion King is one of my favorite shows of all-time at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

    I am happy to tell you that if you decide to book one of the Festival of the Lion King Signature Dining Packages, you will not need to use a FastPass+ selection to enjoy the show. Both packages include a magnificent gourmet meal at Tiffins. After you dine, you will be issued a voucher to attend the show. The Tier I dining package includes VIP seating at the Festival of the Lion King followed by a guided safari tour of the African outback. The Tier II dining package includes reserved seating for the Festival of the Lion King. Keep in mind that outdoor portions of your experience are subject to change or cancellation due to weather.

    Both experiences require advanced reservations due to limited seating and can be booked by calling (407) WDW-DINE or (407) 939-3463 daily between 8:00 AM to 9:00 PM Eastern Time. You can also make your reservations online as well. Reservations for April 2019, have not opened up yet. I would recommend checking back at the beginning of the month to see if reservations have opened up. I hope that helps to answer your question. If you have any more questions before you arrive, please come back and visit us again.
