I just heard the news... The Lion King will be playing in Las Vegas! I've heard so much about this wonderful musical but have never seen it. Now that the show is playing on this side of the US, I feel like I have a much better chance of getting to see it. Right now the Mandalay Bay is offering an unbelievable room and ticket packages for as low as $216 for 2 nights at the Mandalay Bay plus 2 tickets to the show. That's cheap even for just the hotel room! (I'm not sure that last sentence was grammatically correct, but I'm so amazed at this price that I don't care!). Hmmm.... maybe a trip to Vegas is in order?
