  • Just wow!!! This is the greatest show I have ever seen in my life!! This is a must for everyone, both new yorkers and tourists!! It is a high price for the tickets, but it is well worth the money!! Am...  more »
  • Broadway show with extra everything. Relatively expensive tickets, but try to find last-minute tickets so it becomes affordable. Amazing sceneries, costumes and performers. A real experience.

  • This is an extremely beautiful show. Beyond the story that must of us already know, this show is visually stunning, and even the simplest things can be overwhelming. Won't say more to avoid spoilers!  more »

  • Many movements and actions but no good harmony or something concentrated. If you are a musical mania, I preper not to watch this. But if you are young or just a beginner, I let you watch but don't expect too much about detail. Just good to show people dancing but not good to enjoy listening songs.
  • Really fascinating play, superbly orchestrated and executed stage effects. I can't really say enough good things about this, but know that I am not a lover of live theater. In fact, I'd generally prefer to pluck my nose hairs out with tweezers than go see a play, so this speaks to the kind of show that Lion King is. It's not about the art so much as the "Wow" factor. Your mileage may vary.
  • Loved it, I cried in the beginning because it was so overwhelming and beautiful! Amazing!!! Definitely will see it again.
  • Kids really enjoy this show and we have seen it 3 times so far. We live in NYC and try to go days it's not as packed.
  • So beautiful! These people are incredibly talented. I am always in awe of the performance. Words cannot describe how amazing it is to sit and watch this play. Everyone should see it at least once.

Where to stay in New York City

The first step to finding accommodations in New York City is finding the right neighborhood. Manhattan, where most visitors end up, offers some of the most expensive rooms in the world, though there are lower-budget options, such as hostels with shared restrooms. Reduce your costs by basing yourself in one of the outer boroughs, but beware of low-end motels where you may end up sharing the premises with hourly customers. Alternatively, stay along the New Jersey shore, offering all the major chain hotels at considerably lower prices than their Manhattan equivalents.
