Everything was excellent and well managed.
Great vibrant performances

Tip:
+Center mezzanine seats( ABC rows) are perfect for overall view
+Arrive at least 30 minutes early
+Entry gates open 30 minutes before
+Though you might see long queue but it moves fast as you enter

The minute the first song started and the actors came out with there costumes I started crying because I was so excited and so awed by the beautiful stage and costumes, I was honestly speechless for the whole show! First of all the actors were amazing! Second of all the costumes blew my mind! I enjoyed every minute of the show and I wouldn’t mind seeing it many times over again it was that good. Yes the price for a ticket to this show is high but I highly recommend going to see this show on Broadway! A must when in NYC!!!

The show was unreal!!!!
Those voices are wondelful...
The basic ticket price is VERY expensive as Disney do NOT offer discounted tickets the day of the show, but if you are going to pay it anyway, worth to pay the extra and get closer to the stage... and get an ale-seat ;) ;) ;)
Arrive early if you haven't got your tickets printed out or the American Ticketmaster app as the queues get big!
If you can afford it... GO!

Amazing show, incredible production, we have seen many broadway shows but Lion king just stands out. A must see.. buy the tickets through the ticket master or trip advisor. Broadway.com is way more expensive.. we were 8 of us, we had a blast.
