Event Description

D23 Gold and Gold Family Members are invited to the great white way for an exclusive, behind-the-scenes experience celebrating the fan-favorite musical The Lion King on Broadway!

The D23-exclusive event will begin with a one-of-a-kind backstage experience at the New Amsterdam Theatre. This is not your ordinary Behind-the-Magic Tour, as attendees will be among the first public guests to tour the offices of Disney Theatrical Group, located on the top floors of the theatre. While in this backstage location, New Amsterdam Theatre tour guides will share stories about the legendary Ziegfeld Follies and additional history about this spectacular venue. Plus, D23 guests will have the rare opportunity to get up close and personal with costumes and props from current and past Disney on Broadway productions—including The Lion King!

Following the behind-the-scenes experience, D23 attendees will walk to a nearby restaurant in Midtown to enjoy a delicious dinner. Then, the group will travel on foot to the Minskoff Theatre and be seated in Premium Orchestra level seats (located in the first eight Orchestra Center rows) for the 8 p.m. showing of The Lion King.

Plus, all D23 attendees will receive a commemorative Disney’s The Lion King on Broadway keepsake!

Check-in will begin at 3:45 p.m., and the behind-the-scenes tour will begin promptly at 4 p.m. and the event will conclude at the end of The Lion King 8 p.m. performance.
