We just saw Festival of the Lion King for the first time on this trip and it was amazing! It is now on my must-see list. My "once is enough" was actually Beauty and the Beast. We saw the musical when it ran in Washington, DC and that was so fabulous that this version just paled in comparison. It'd kind of funny because I don't really like the Lion King movie that much and Beauty and the Beast is the movie that brought my "I'm too old for Disney" teenage self back to loving animation.

Benn's must-see is Indiana Jones and his eh, seen it is Lights, Motors, Action. I expected Enchanted Tales with Belle to take that spot for him, but we both actually really liked it.

I found The Beauty and the Beast show to be quite disjointed compared to The Festival of The Lion King. I saw The Beauty and the Beast show for the first time last year and was quite disappointed. The movie was brilliant, there was a journey which I felt was masked by the (necessary) cuts to run time.

However, my favourite live show? It's gotta be Indiana Jones. The Lights, Motors, Action show is great but it seems that Indy has the ability to be a little more flexible.

Festival of the Lion King hands down. We didn't really like Finding Nemo - actually came close to hating it. Too long, more shouting than singing, and just not for us. I loved Hunchback - I'd second bringing that back.

I gotta say my favorite was Tarzan Encounter at Disneyland Paris, and I wish they brought it here. It was so well done and so beautiful. Of course, what I enjoyed was the diversity in the languages as well. (And I am a Phil Collins fan)

When I came here, I guess The Festival of the Lion King became a favorite. Smile

We love festival of the lion king. Would love to see Aladdin replace beauty and the beast. Or atleast rotate the show more.

Festival of the Lion King, no doubt it. It was just mindblowing with the puppetry and acrobats to see. Other than that, let's not forget about the live street shows at World Showcase! The World Showcase Players I saw on my last trip were funny and entertaining. Serveur Amusant (The chair stacking acrobat waiter) was pretty awesome, as well. I can only hope to add Off Kilter to the list because to see a live show of them is something I must do on my next trip.

I like Festival of the Lion King, but that's about it, I think.

I live in NYC, so I've seen Disney's Broadway versions of B&theBeast, Lion King, Little Mermaid, and now Aladdin. I actually try not to see too many live shows at WDW - preserves my memories on both sides.

I miss the Hunchback...it was our must see.

Hmmm....live show that we must see in recent trips...the drummers in Japan and the Jammitors near Test Track. We have watched many of the live shows over time but none were like Hunchback to us. We did enjoy the Comedy Warehouse this past Christmas and wish they would continue it.

I've seen all the WDW shows multiple times. B&B has the best songs, LK has the best action, Nemo is very colorful, LM has a great vocal performance, but my favorite is Turtle Talk with Crush. Dude, when he puts that bikini top on, that is major chuckles.

I really look forward to the improvisational shows. Citizens of Hollywood and World Showcase Players are always fresh.

Of course the undisputed king of WDW shows was Hoopla. So sad.

Ok I didn't even think about all the amazing live entertainment at Epcot. I need to mention Off Kilter, it is not a trip to Disney without seeing them at least twice!

I do love Off Kilter. One day, I was racing around Epcot being my usual ride-till-you-drop self, and I had NO intention of breaking my stride. And they got me. I slowed. I sped back up ... getting ... so ... weak ... They got me. We sat down to watch, and now they're a favorite!

I've always wondered if the band is double or triple cast, if there are actually several of those guys. I guess there probably are.

They rotate to an extent but the core of the band is Jamie Holton (bagpipes). I've also never seen them without Randy Holbrook on guitar.

Aladdin @ CA Adventure is my #1. Festival of the Lion King is a close #2.

DHS could really use an indoor theater like CA Adventure has. It seats over 2000 people, and the show is extremely well done.
