8 Rookie Mistakes People Make at Disney’s Animal Kingdom at Walt Disney World

6. Not See a Show

Confession time, I didn’t see Festival of the Lion King until last year. I regret not seeing it now, because I love it! Festival of the Lion King is one of the highlights of my Disney vacations. You are totally missing out if you don’t experience at least one of the shows in Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Your other options are Finding Nemo: The Musical and Flights of Wonder. I was surprisingly impressed with Finding Nemo! Don’t miss it!
