My wife and I have discussed before how our two favorite live shows at WDW are both in Animal Kingdom. I like Festival of the Lion King slightly better than Finding Nemo- the Musical, and she is undecided which one she likes better, but we both agree that they are our favorites. That gave me the idea for this topic. What is your favorite live show at WDW?

06-04-2008, 01:10 PM
I really like The Little Mermaid!

06-04-2008, 01:26 PM
I did like Tarzan Rocks, but now it is probably Finding Nemo the Musical

My favorite is also in DAK - Flights of Wonder.:thumbsup:

Our favorite live musical show is also FoTLK at AK. We also enjoyed Beauty & the Beast at DHS.
Flights of Wonder at AK is really funny, too.

Actually, my favorite show attraction overall is Wishes, but that's not a singing and dancing show.

I get chills every time during the finale of festival of the lion king. Nemo is very good and so is B&B at the DS. But my vote is lion king!

Fantastic is my all time favorite of any park...:mickey:

I love B&B at DHS. It's Disney's best story for cartoons and it translates well onto the stage. And 4for a Dollar on the pre-show make it great. Flights of Wonder is close second.

No contest for me, it is the Nemo Musical at Animal Kingdom. So beautiful to the eyes and the ears!! :thumbsup:

Fantasmic is my absolute favorite and the Lion King is my second.

06-04-2008, 05:06 PM
Fantasmic #1...and while this probably outisde the realm of what you were looking for, but #1b would actually be the high school bands that occasionally cruise around the lake at Epcot...the kids have an absolute blast and I enjoy watching them be part of the magic (even more so after DD did so earlier this year). I also enjoy Off Kilter's performance at Epcot.

I would say the Lion KIng followed by Beauty & the Beast for the live show part. Then Fantasmic & Philharmagic is next for the non live shows.

06-04-2008, 05:20 PM
My first would be Fantasmic. Which I do consider a live show since they are all performing in it.

My second would probably be FOTLK followed by the Nemo Musical.

06-04-2008, 05:26 PM
Mine would be Nemo with Mermaid running a close second. Im bored with Festival of a Lion King personally - I wish they would bring back Tarzan Rocks!..Now THAT was a show!!!

06-04-2008, 06:03 PM
My favorite is Lion King.:mickey:

While everyone makes mention of some great shows, the one that still resonates with me is The Night Before Christmas Show performed at the MVMCP last year. I expected it to be ho hum but I was pleasantly surprised. As that was my first MVMCP, I am not sure if they do that show each year but I highly recommend it if they do and you are there.

like Nemo, Lion King, but something about Little Mermaid in the dark that makes it better.

06-04-2008, 11:14 PM
I have not seen the Nemo show yet, but I love Festival of the Lion King. I like the WDW version better then the HKD version. Fantasmic would be my second choice. :smickey:

06-04-2008, 11:22 PM
Beauty and the Beast at DHS! :mickey:

Flights of Wonder - It's the best kept secret in WDW! None of the yearly vistors I know ever check it out. I'm so glad we went the last time!!

So many great shows to choose from, but my
favs are:
1) Fantasmic at DHS
2) Festival of The Lion King at Animal Kingdom

06-05-2008, 02:57 AM
I like Beauty and the Beast and Nemo best.

06-05-2008, 05:30 AM
The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast for me :thumbsup:

06-05-2008, 07:26 AM
Indiana Jones for me. Especially as you get a chance to take part. :)

06-05-2008, 09:34 AM
I too am partial to The Little Mermaid. I guess it's because its my favorite princess movie.

06-05-2008, 11:46 AM
Hands down, Nemo gets my vote! :nemo:
But then again, they are all great!!

06-05-2008, 11:55 AM
For me it has to be Fantasmic closely followed by Festival of the Lion King.

Fantasmic just feels like a true piece of Disney magic and always amazes me every time I see it. :smickey:

Festival of the Lion King is the best, followed by B&B. Many good shows to choose from, though.

Fantasmic by a mile.

Followed by Nemo.

06-06-2008, 12:23 PM
Festival of the Lion King for me! I fell in love with that one the first time I saw it and it is a must every trip. I also enjoy Beauty and the Beast. I guess they are all good, but Lion King for me.

Those two we will do again this year, as well as Little Mermaid (DD had to see it 3 times last year and wants to see it at least as many this time) and probably B&B again.

Did not get to see either Nemo or Lights, Motors, Action last year and they are definitely on the list for this year. We "might" skip Indy and Pocohontas, though. However, I'm still trying to figure out a way to justify spending the money for an Indy fedora :cowboy:. It's just too cool

FOTLK at AK! That show is amazing to say the very least, and it hasn't lost any quality in several years.

06-06-2008, 04:11 PM
I really enjoyFestival of the Lion King. It is VERY energetic and colorful and the acrobats are great!!!!

06-06-2008, 04:12 PM
finding nemo was okay:mickey:

06-06-2008, 08:46 PM
Lion King rocks!

06-07-2008, 03:52 AM
Mine would have to be FOTLK and Nemo (I can't pick one over the other).

06-08-2008, 08:44 AM
I would have to say Festival of the Lion King. I also really liked Tarzan Rocks which is now gone.

We haven't seen Nemo yet, and I know we'll love it, but I think Fantasmic will always be our #1. :number1:
