Disney is known for its amazing entertainment. On your next Disney World Vacation, be sure to check out some of these live stage shows that will be sure to delight and amaze you!

At Magic Kingdom, Dream Along with Mickey is set in front of Cinderella’s Castle. Featuring not only all the classic Disney Characters, princesses and princes, many of their arch enemies show up to sing, dance and entertain you as the battle between good and evil  is reenacted.

Hollywood Studios stage shows are available for those young and old. For the littlest of your group, Disney Junior – Live on Stage! might be their favorite. Planning Minnie’s best ever birthday party, you’ll see Handy Manny, Little Einsteins and Jake and the Neverland Pirates all come together to create a memorable day for Minnie. When the kids aren’t seated on the ground to watch, they will be jumping and dancing right along with their Disney friends and squealing with delight when bubbles start floating down from the ceiling.

Another favorite show at Hollywood studios is the reenactment of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. The costumes and scenery will amaze you as they are able to recreate scenes from the movie with dancing plates and cutlery in such creative and spectacular ways.

If you are a fan of reality TV, be sure to check out An American Idol Experience and even try out for a coveted stage performance. Guests of Hollywood Studios are featured in this singing competition where the audience members become the judges of the day. The best of the day’s performances compete for a Dream Ticket performance at a regional American Idol audition. You might see the next American Idol when you are there!

At Animal Kingdom you will not want to miss Festival of The Lion King and Finding Nemo – The Musical. At Festival of The Lion King, the audience is divided up into four animal groups for the celebration. You will be in awe watching the acrobats and fire juggler along with the other performers. The show appeals to all ages and you end up happily humming the songs all the rest of the day at the park.

The story of Nemo is weaved perfectly through puppetry and song in Finding Nemo – The Musical.  You feel a part of the ocean when sea life characters wind their way through the audience and bubbles float down from the above. Catch a seat right by the runway off the stage and Nemo may even come out and give you a good look in the eye!

Disney World is such a great place to see top of the line stage shows. Be sure to catch some of them on your next vacation and let us know what your favorite shows are!
