The Festival of the Lion King at Disney's Animal Kingdom is a great show. We always make a point to get a Fast Pass for it. We missed the Fast Pass window, though, on our last visit because a rogue giraffe stranded our truck out on Kilimanjaro Safaris for about a half an hour.
We ran to the Lion King show as soon as our safari tour was over but missed our window so we had to enter in the "regular" line about two minutes before the show started. They took us into the theater and sat us down right on the floor in front of the show!
Despite the fact that they pulled me up onto the stage and made me grunt like a warthog in front of the entire show, it was a great bit of luck! Stay tuned for many front-row photographs from the Festival of the Lion King in the coming months!
