TDF presents an Autism-friendly Performance of Disney’s THE LION KING – get on the waiting list now!

So I already missed buying the tickets, even though they went on sale today – goes to show how popular this event is. Even if you’re not sure you can attend on September 30th, I highly recommend signing up for the waiting list (like I just did) in case any tickets become available – that’s how we scored tickets to Mary Poppins last month. Clicking the link below will automatically take you to their waitlist notification sign-ups. If you are one of the lucky few who got Lion King tickets, congrats!
