Wow. It may be a tad expensive, but it’s certainly worth it and once in a lifetime experience you must do! It is sensational and the amount of effort that goes into the casting, dress, drops, choreography etc is immense! So impressed by this show!

We went here to see the Lion King and it was great. The layout is easy to get around and the Theatre was spacious and comfortable. The show was incredible but prices for the beverages and snacks was expensive but theatres always are.

Staff will allow photos before the performance begins but there are absolutely no photos permitted during the show itself. Doors open well before showtime, 90 minutes I believe. So you’ll have plenty of time!

We were in balcony seats and saw everything fine. If you want to see close up expressions then go for the orchestra seats. It's not a huge theater so most seats are good ones.
