Stairs

In the old location of the lion king there were seats at the bottom.
I had evc and drove right in and parked along side of theses seats.

Just advise the person seating you and get there early if you don't have a wheel chair or evc.

Beauty and the Beast in HS I drive my evc down a ramp.

Fantasmic show there are seats at the top and you see great I sit in my evc every time.

It's like combining the teacups with a roller coaster

Post 28 on page 2 of the disABILITIES FAQs thread has a list of attractions with stairs and moving walkways.
This is a link to page 2 and then scroll down to post 28.

Let the CM greeting and also seating what you need/that you can't do steps.

Beauty and the Beast has accessible seats at the very top row and also down a ramp in the very front row.

From the pictures I've seen of Lion King, the new set up looks the same as the old was, so quite a few seats on ground level.

I'm not sure what you are meaning as lma; if it's the Little Mermaid at Hollywood Studios, there are no steps. The whole theater is ramped.

For Lights, Motors, Action let the CM know you are using a wheelchair or scooter and will stay in it for the show. There is special seating throughout the stands including the ground level, and elevator access for the other locations higher in the stands. Not a public elevator, the CM will access it for you.

Most attractions have elevators or ramps that one never notices because they are not looking for them. The CM's know how to get you in!

We were in the “wild animals” cage, which was very fitting for us

Lion King at the new theater has the exact same seating arrangement as the old theater. We were seated in one if the 2 rows on floor level.
