To help celebrate Disney’s The Lion Kings second anniversary at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, Disney is offering it’s first locals ticket offer just for kids! For weekend matinee performances in the month of May, each adult that purchases a full-price ticket can purchase two child tickets for only $15.
This special offer for local families is a way for The Lion King to thank the Las Vegas community for its support since the show’s May 2009 debut.

The Lion King was named the city’s “Best Show” by the staff of the Las Vegas Review-Journal in its annual “Best of Las Vegas” awards, while Las Vegas Magazine said THE LION KING “… transcends cultural boundaries and the limits of the imagination” and CityLife called it “…flat-out brilliant.”
Families can experience the magic of the world’s No. 1 musical through their children’s eyes as they watch Simba’s journey from cub to King. With incredible costumes, larger-than-life animals, special effects, exciting musical score and heartfelt story, THE LION KING is the perfect introduction to the theatre for people of all ages.
