Has anybody been successful in buying Lion King tickets? They went on sale this morning and within minutes they were sold out. I asked DH to buy them as I was at work but when he went online they were already sold out.
I then tried in vain to buy Aladdin tickets but the system kept giving an error message and not letting me add my card details.
Eventually bought tickets to see Wicked! I’m so gutted to have missed Lion King. I was waiting for Kids’ Week since last year because I know Lion King is expensive and I can only afford it this way.
I kept getting an error message for the show I was trying to book too, v frustrating. As pp said, do try again, they sometimes release more. As an aside, I did get lion king tickets 3 years ago. Both dd (then 9) and I were bored rigid and she fell asleep!
If you can't get seats for Aladdin then try going for the 'slip seats' they are a lot cheaper than normal tickets as supposedly they have a restricted view but that was not our experience at all we had a brilliant view of the entire stage. The seats are different to the stalls as they are movable (normal but comfy chairs) and one behind the other between the boxes and the rest of the auditorium.
@youcancallmeval, hahaha, thanks for trying to make me feel better. But I’ve watched the Lion King on stage and it’s an experience never to be missed, in my opinion. Knowing DD, however, I won’t be too surprised if she doesn’t get bored after the opening scene. So yeah, Wicked! might be a better choice.
I’ve already bought tickets for Wicked! and in my experience, more Lion King tickets don’t get released later.
I was also trying desperately for lion king tickets too 😵. I think I'd added tickets 3 times and then couldn't get to the payment screen.
In the end I've paid full price, it was about £200 for 4 tickets, ouch.
I have bought cheap seats and found the website https://seatplan.com/london/lyceum-theatre/ really helpful when choosing seats, photos and reviews of views from each seat, our restricted view seats don't seem too bad!!
I tried unsuccessfully too. I’m a bit cynical. I followed the ticket drama unfolding on Facebook (all tickets for all shows sold at 10.01?!) and I only saw one person say they had managed to get tickets for Lion King. I suspect there are a handful of tickets available making it nigh on impossible to get them. I think other shows have a far greater allocation of BOGOF tickets.
I did go on last minute.com and found some tickets for one of the shows offered at a lower price so worth trying there too. They weren’t the top price ones but if you compromise on the seat you can get some pretty good deals!
