    Do you need fast passes for shows

    Hello Bernadette!

    Thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel. You can make FastPass+ selections at select shows in the Walt Disney World theme parks like Festival of the Lion King and Finding Nemo - The Musical at Animal Kingdom Theme Park. However, you don't need them to see the shows. They all have a standby queue. I recommend arriving to each show at least 15 to 20 minutes before they start. If wait times are heavy or if it's a holiday, then I would recommend arriving at least 30 minutes early. 

    As a personal preference I like to use my FastPass+ selections on rides. I definitely recommend making time to watch shows like the ones above and Beauty and the Beast at Disney's Hollywood Studios. I'm always amazed by the talented performers.

    If you have any other questions, please come back and see us real soon. Have a magical vacation!
