    If our fast pass arrival time for the lion King show at animal kingdom is 4:30-4:45, what time does the actual show start? I'm trying to make dinner reservations for after the show and want to know the actual start time. Thanks.

    Hi Joanne!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Festival of the Lion King is absolutely a don't miss!  I saw this fantastic show for the first time over 20 years ago, and I still make sure to see it every visit!  Guests with FastPass+ reservations for the show will enter the theater ahead of those in the standby line.

    I'm guessing you are viewing "My Plans" on the My Disney Experience mobile app.  In that view, the FastPass+ thumbnail just shows "Arrive between: 4:30 PM - 4:45 PM"  If you select that FastPass+ reservation by clicking on it, it will bring up the "FastPass+ Detail" and you will see "Showtime: 5:00 PM - 5:30 PM".  You will also see the complete details when viewing your FastPass+ reservation on the website.

    The show does last approximately 30 minutes.  Allowing time to exit the theater and walk to your dining location, I think making your dinner reservation anytime after 6:00 PM is a safe bet.

    Please feel free to visit the Moms Panel again anytime with any additional questions you may have.  We are always happy to help!

    Enjoy your visit!
