    Hi, can I reserve festival of the lion king in advance?

    Hi Dan,

    Thank you for reaching out to planDisney! I'm happy to help with your question!

    "Festival of the Lion King" is a must-see show at Disney's Animal Kingdom, featuring vibrant performances inspired by the classic Disney movie. While you cannot make reservations for this show in advance, it is part of the Disney Genie+ Lightning Lane attractions. This means you can reserve a spot through the Genie+ service on the day of your visit.

    To use Genie+ for "Festival of the Lion King," simply open the My Disney Experience app on the day of your visit, purchase Genie+, and select the show as one of your Lightning Lane experiences. This will help you secure a spot without having to wait in the standby line.

    If you prefer not to use Genie+, the show operates on a first-come, first-served basis. I recommend arriving at the theater early to secure your spot. Arriving 20-30 minutes before the scheduled showtime usually ensures you get a good seat.

    I hope this helps, and I wish you a fantastic time enjoying "Festival of the Lion King" and your visit to Disney's Animal Kingdom! If you have any more questions or need further assistance, please feel free to reach out to us again at planDisney.

    Best regards,
