    Re: 'The Lion King' will roar in Las Vegas

    The concept of "Matching" the high-end 'Lion King' to the comparatively cheesy MGM lion-theme is silly. Their poorly presented former 'Wizard of Oz' theming and failed theme park leaps to mind. They were disgraces to the once legendary studio but enough of a lure to a hotel & casino that is not up to the standards of The Mirage/Bellagio/Wynn/Mandalay Bay for example.

    Yes, the Manadalay Bay Shark Reef is wonderful but it's only name asset, hardly. Having House of Blues and their beach and Events Center on-site easily gets more media and attendence. And 'Mamma Mia!' certainly hasn't hurt them either.

    A not inexpensive theatre ticket on the same property with the clientele of it's THEhotel makes perfect sense. It's simply a far classier location than the home of the shiny lion.

    Well, MGM does have KA. Pricy ticket and a rather solid show.
    I worked at Walt Disney World as a member of the Disney College Program in Spring 2008 and Summer 2010. Now, I build software, design live events, and frequently make the short trek from Costa Mesa to Disneyland with my Annual Passport in hand.

    True. It was a smart move on MGM's part to spend well over $100 million to have the Cirque du Soliel brand on property. That and Emeril's are the real reasons to go there.
