    Hi, my daughter is 5 yrs old, and last time we visited Animal Kingdom, she really loved The Festival of the Lion King. We"ll be visiting soon, and we already have a fastpass+ for that show. My question is how can we be seated in the Lion King section?

    Hi Rocio!

    Your daughter loves the same thing I do, the Festival of the Lion King show! It is my all time favorite live show held anywhere at Walt Disney World. Obviously the music is wonderful but the dancing and talent that is part of the show is first class and mesmerizing no matter how many times you see it. Some of my favorites include the Tumble Monkeys, fire twirler, and of course the dancers and stilt walkers. The energy they produce just makes the audience come alive.

    There are indeed sections for the guests and where they sit primarily depends on whether they are FastPass users or stand by queue guests. Inside the four sections are the Elephants, Giraffes, Warthogs, and the Lions. I am assuming your daughter wishes to be in the Lion section from your question. Again the sections are filled depending on which line you are in. You can always check with some of the cast members outside and inside the attraction and let them know your daughter's wishes. If possible they will assist you to the section where she can enjoy the show. Please know that this is not always possible and especially during really busy times in the parks. But Disney does try to make the magic for all its guests including the youngest ones.

    Enjoy this wonderful show!
