Simba, Timon, and Pumbaa join forces to protect the environment in The Circle of Life – An Environmental Fable. Located on the top floor of the Land Pavilion at Epcot, this movie reminds viewers of the impact of our actions on the environment at large. The movie features gorgeous live action footage of some of the animals that are featured in The Lion King. Circle of Life also includes footage of impressive man-made creation, juxtaposed with the consequences of the creation, including pollution and waste. Ultimately, viewers are left with a message that is pro-conservation

This movie has entertaining moments and a good educational message. It’s a fine way to spend 15 minutes of your day, and it almost never has a line. It’s worth checking out because the movie is very well made, but it might not be on your list of must-do attractions at Walt Disney World.
