A few nights ago, I happened to be at Disney’s Animal Kingdom during a showing of “The Jungle Book: Alive With Magic.” Not only was the Discovery River Theater filled, but I was in awe of the guests that crowded the bridge between the Asia and Dinoland, U.S.A., section of the park. They were four-to-five people deep, all trying to get a glimpse (or photos) of this bright and colorful show.

The show is a retelling of Disney’s “The Jungle Book” with a lovely Indian influence added in just about every element of the performance – including the dance styles and the amazing costumes.

The music featured in the show also comes alive with Indian influences, with songs featuring instruments like the sitar and tabla drums.
