The Festival of the Lion King is a live entertainment show which takes place once an hour in camp Mickey-Minnie. You are advised to get there a half hour early, because it fills up fast. The show is 25 minutes long, indoors, and interactive.

When the show starts, Timone, Pumba, and Simba arrive on floats to start the festivities. Though there is no overall story line, there are displays of acrobatics, ballet, and a man who dances with fire. Though it gets dark sometimes, the show should be ok for most small children. If you are looking for amazing entertainment, this is the show to see.

If you love movies, you will love the Great Movie Ride in Hollywood Studios. The waiting area is decorated with various props and costumes from famous Disney movies. Unlike most rides, it features a combination of live actors and animatronics.You climb into an enormous car which seats (an estimated) fifty people each.

The cars take you into scenes from such movies as The Wizard Of Oz, Alien, Public Enemy, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and one (whose name escapes me) that involving a cursed Egyptian tomb.

During the action, you witness a bank robbery, lose your tour guide, a bandit comes aboard your car, then you get to see the curse of the Pharaoh’s tomb in action, and finally find your tour guide again.

There are some dark and spooky parts which could frighten little kids. There are also some skeletons, loud noises and an alien (from the movie Alien). However, it doesn’t go too fast and there aren’t any drops.
