Another reason I wanted to go to New York was to see The Lion King on Broadway. I am a huge fan of the theater and it is my absolute favorite Disney movie. I had been dying to see the play for a while and every time they toured they never seemed to make it down to Miami. Let me just tell you it was worth the wait. My mom and I splurged and got orchestra seats (in the back on the side but still amazing!) and being able to clearly see the detailed costumes as they walked past you down the aisle was incredible! It was surprisingly very different from the movie. Granted the story line was the same, but the adaptation of the music and with the actors truly made it a sight to be seen. I saw the musical again years later when it finally made it to the Arsht Center in Miami but it was nothing like seeing it on that wide open stage in New York.
