A lot of people think only of the rides and parades when they visit Walt Disney World. If you breeze over the live entertainment when looking at a Disney Map, you may be missing one of the best parts of the Disney experience. Not only does taking the time to watch a show at the Disney Parks give you time to relax and take a load off your feet, it gives you a chance to experience some of the most top-notch entertainment in Central Florida. There is something to watch in every park, for all ages.
Magic Kingdom is known for its exciting parades, but if your feet are tired of standing, try stepping inside the cool air conditioning of the Galaxy Palace Theater and enjoy a theatrical performance that is out of this world!
Perhaps one some of the most impressive Disney live shows are in the Animal Kingdom. Join Nemo and his friends in Finding Nemo, The Musical. The theater that you sit in is transformed into an undersea setting so that you feel like you are underwater as you watch the 30 minute spectacle of huge puppets, live actors, and special music.
Also at Animal Kingdom is Festival of the Lion King. This is a high energy, interactive performance that features acrobats. A huge Lion King cast that includes Timon, Simba, and Pumbaa are celebrating tribal style and you are invited to join in!
EPCOT is full of educational rides that don't require standing, screaming, or much of anything for that matter. One of our favorites is in the Norway Pavilion. After a flume ride through troll ridden lands, guests are able to sit and watch a very informative show about the beautiful land of Norway.
Finally, Disney MGM Studios is not without its fair share of live entertainment. The High School Musical Pep Rally has gotten a lot of national attention lately. Audience members learn highschool cheers, dance moves, and new songs in this spirited display of high school culture.
Also at Disney MGM Studios is a live performance of Beauty and the Beast. Belle, Gaston and Lumiere transport you into the world of this classic fairy tale in a show you won't soon forget!
No matter what park you visit there is always a cool and entertaining place to take a seat and relax. It's not a bad idea either, considering the size of the Disney theme parks. Before you can visit Walt Disney World and see any of these shows you will have to purchase a ticket. Check out DW Tickets for the most inexpensive Disney tickets around!
