    What advantages does it have over the DAK version?

    The HKDL version is more adult in style. Told in similar fashion to DLP's.. where the animals re-enact Simba's lifestory. The theater offers much more upgrades in lighting, a stage that spins (with lifts, pyro spots), and even bigger fanfare than that at DAK. While the HKDL show does follow most aspects of the DAK show in production, these are made in more lavish form in HK. Silly acrobatic moments.. (the jumping monkeys "we have no bananas" song etc) are gone from the show in HK, replaced by a more fluid story telling script. I happen to like it better as it is a much improved version of the DAK show.

    And Speedrace, hope you had a nice flight home on Virgin.

    Oh right, okay. I just assumed they were both the same show. Thanks for explaining the differences.

    We flew with British Airways, and I couldn't tell you how nice the flight was because I had a glass of wine within half an hour of boarding and was dead to the world for the rest of the flight. Woke up very refreshed! I do love to fly with Virgin though, definitely the best airline I've been with.
