    I’m torn. One one hand, I think that The Lion King is the better show, but on the other hand, I’m pretty sure that Alladin still has its original cast, which is pretty cool to see if you care about that sort of thing.

    Basically, you really can’t go wrong either way!

    I went to NYC for my senior trip with the choir and theater club in High School and we saw Stomp off Broadway, and Broadway productions of Memphis and The Lion King. As a Disney lover I was SO excited for Lion King and it was actually the worst of all three, tbh. The choreography and even the acting was terrible and it felt like they were just letting the costumes and the fact that it was “Disney” carry the whole show. It was very disappointing. 

    I haven’t seen Aladdin but I’d vote for anything that isn’t Lion King tbh.

    I would definitely go with The Lion King over Aladdin. I admittedly only saw Aladdin while it was still in previews, but I thought it was a huge disappointment compared to the movie. Aladdin himself just wasn’t likeable. For example, instead of stealing to eat, he steals just because. No thanks.

    Maybe it’s because I saw the Original NY Broadway cast of The Lion King. I’m in shock that anyone could think it was the worst. Aladdin is funny but definitely cheesy to an extent. The Lion King is just mesmerizing. i would take everyone to go see it if I had that kind of money hahaha.

    I love The Lion King (I’ve seen 2 different touring productions), but since you’ve seen it, I vote Aladdin. Darling Husband and I love the version at California Adventure and are bummed they’re taking it out!

    princessinwaiting:  I had the pleasure to see both. The Lion King has that little extra something, je ne sais quoi. Aladin although a great movie, they add a little too many jokes…and I don’t know it’s just not at Lion King Level.

     

    The Lion King will change you! lol

     

    Edit: I just read you seen the Lion King…if your husband has seen it as well…see Aladdin….But Lion King is better.

    I agree with PP. Everyone should see The Lion King once in their lives. I saw it in high school and it was a major memory for me. I’ve also heard AMAZING things about Aladdin, so you really can’t go wrong.
