If you go to see the Lion King Show in Fantasyland, try to be the first person in line to go to the preshow area. This way you get a good look at the rocks that touch the floor. The rocks actually spell out a name. Because of the volume of people that entered the room, I was not able to read the entire name.

There is, in fact, a name written in the stones in the Lion King Pre-show. The name is "Dallas" and you can clearly make out the name when the theater is empty. I'm pretty sure that it was the name of one of the men who built the stage.

Some of the puppets in the Legend of the Lion King show require up to 4 people to operate!

As a Lion King animateer I can assure you that the Adult Simba puppet in the
Legend of the Lion King show requires 5 people to fully operate.
UPDATE: anon 28 AUG 98
In The Ledgend of The Lion King you only see half of Scar's body. I was told by a Cast member that his is done because Scar is only one-half of a puppet!
