    We have a 15 y.o boy ,9 y.o girl and 6 y.o boy We are only able to watch either festival of the lion king or finding nemo at Animal Kingdom d/t time restrictions. We were wondering which one would be best for our children's age gap. Thank you so much

    Hi Jaclyn!

    This question is not hard for me to answer as one of the shows you mentioned is my all time favorite Disney show on property.

    The Festival of the Lion King is a show packed with singing and dancing but it will appeal to all ages as the action is constant. The talent in this show is beyond words and who doesn't love those Lion King songs from the movie! The audience will get involved during certain parts and they even ask a few of the younger guests to help at one point. At other moments you will sit mesmerized at what is happening on stage. But I don't want to give it all away so you will have to trust me on this!

    During every visit to Walt Disney World I make it a point to go to the Animal Kingdom  park and see this show. I have also had the privilege and opportunity to visit all of the Disney theme parks around the world and have seen it in some of those parks as well. In my opinion it is definitely a better show and the one you would find everyone in your family enjoying on your next visit.
