great deal, thanks for posting.
When I booked, the show was 7.30 not mid afternoon as suggested - not a problem if you fancy a few extra hours in London but thought I should mention.

Cheers Pete

looks good, cheers

Looks like a great deal so voted hot. However, just as a word of warning, Disney recommends this for children aged 7 or older and entry is refused to under threes. So I can't take advantage of this as we have a baby.

This is hot!! What a great show - would definately recommend . I finally went to see this a couple of weeks ago for my birthday after wanting to see it for years - didnt get it as cheap as this though - GREAT DEAL.

grand circle tickets look too far at the back...?

Very nice price. Been wanting to see this for ages.

Seems deal is for tickets in the grand circle which is high up. Anyone know how good or bad the view from the grand circle is?

sat in the stalls when i went last week and it was really good. you really get involved when you are in the stalls as the scenery/actors/animals all go onto the stage from down the aisles.

Really well made show and the voices are amazing. Rafiki, Scar and Zazoo were brilliant.

I paid £56 per ticket, but couldnt see the other sections of the theatre as the stalls are low down.

p.s if you are tall you will find leg room isnt quite as comfortable as you would like it to be, plus the seats are quite hard for the length of time you are sitting on them.

Some info on the theatre from theatremonkey.com. The grand circle section is quoted:

http://www.theatremonkey.com/LYCEUMbooking.htm#Th

UPPER CIRCLE
Called the GRAND CIRCLE in this theatre.

This circle is very high above the ground and steeply raked enough to induce vertigo in many people. Normally, this is as they make their way down to their seats and most find that, once seated, they become used to the height.

A metal bar runs across the front of this circle affecting the view slightly in row A.

Double bars at the ends of the aisles affect seats A 14, 15, B 15, 16, C 15, 16, D 14, 15, A 33, 34, B 34, 35, C 25, 34 and D 33, 34 enough to have the price reduced. These seats are average value.

Reader Roxana comments of these,
"We sat in seats 33 and 34, row A of the Upper ( top) Circle. These are marked as partially restricted view ( lowest price ) because they have a rail in front of them. We just leaned on the ( dirty) rail , and the view was perfect, though high up. Not worth it to buy any other seats in the same level at a more expensive price because we had the same view as everyone else. From reading the reviews, it seems as though the viewers who sat in the stalls had a better impression of the play than I did at the top. From up there, we could see layers of dirt and dust on all the wall stucco ornaments and the whole thing looked very shabby. The velvet on the rail was torn to pieces."

As in the Dress Circle, aisles split these seats into a central and two side blocks. The central block offers clear views and fair value back to row G. From row H back the rake angle is noticeably steep and it feels a long way down and also far from the stage. Value for money is still fair - better now row H is cheaper.

The side blocks as usual offer a clear view from all except the first and last four seats in each row, which should be avoided. If paying full price, opt for the centre block as you will get better views for the same cash. The same notes as for the centre block apply about the best rows. Row A 1, 47, row B 1, 2, 48, 49 and row C 1, 49 are felt by one reader to have a "sideways" view of the stage.

The rear rows in all blocks are reasonably priced for those on a budget, but a head for heights is advisable.

A reader notes that if those in the front row lean forward, you will be forced to do so too in order to see the whole stage.

Another reader comments that,

"In the Upper Circle, Row A. I could see the stage easily but I could see rather too much in that the effects were ruined by the fact that you could see how they were created. Given that I was at the front of the Upper Circle, I thought this was appalling.

You could see the rollers the buffalos were on more clearly than the buffalos themselves. During the river scene, the fish were not visible but the people holding the cutouts and the lights very definitely were. And the pad onto which the character jumped obvious for the whole piece.

I would certainly recommend not to go to Upper Circle. Seats may be cheaper but they are still a lot of money and these 'errors' reduced my enjoyment considerably."

In row L, a reader says,
"Row L seats 28 and 29. I think the price is very very good for these seats, especially as they're in the middle and you can see everything. Although in the stalls you get the cast walking right by you so you feel more included. But as I'm not the biggest fan, I think these are the best seats as the view hardly changes in the grand circle where ever you sit and they're the cheapest. The leg room is good, but be a bit careful if you're 5ft 7 and above, because it can be a little uncomfortable."

Another reader says,
"Upper Circle row M seats 36 to 39 - the view was fine."

Legroom is poor in all seats, worst in row A. Those over five foot tall should consider end of row seats on the centre aisle which should provide some respite for one leg anyway.

Standing space is behind a fairly high wall with a bar on top, so is not suitable for children or those under 5ft 6 or so. Reader Chris May stood here, and reports:

"WHAT A BARGAIN!! I stood in 'position 17' at the back of the Upper Circle and had a marvellous view of the stage.

After bribing a small boy with a pound to use his binoculars I was able to stand back and watch the fantastic big set pieces that make this show so good unfold before my natural view, and when solo songs and speaky bits happened I could zoom in and look at the faces in detail. The only draw back from the standing tickets are that you are not close to all the stalls action that happens but you still see it all and you have to join in the applause simply for the arrival of the animals.

One problem is that it is inevitable that when standing you may be next to annoying Japanese girls who don't understand ' no photos' and talk to one another a lot. Be firm with them and, if they don't shut up, make the ushers do some work. Also, due to the cheap (well cheaper) seats being at the back....school groups are inevitable. This cannot be helped so there is nowt you can do."

Why would anyone take a baby to the theatre anyway?! :?

Grand circle is fine for viewing, leg room is limited if you are a taller lad like me, and the action comes out into the crowd in the stalls so this is missed, but all in all we still thoroughly enjoyed it!
