This may be the only acceptable way to be forcefully and suddenly woken up by hotel staff.

When thousands of college kids last week flocked to the spring break party capital of the world, Panama City Beach, Fla., the local Holiday Inn discovered an amusing way to get the students out of bed and onto the beach without having to call every single room.

At precisely 11 a.m. every day, the hotel blared Circle of Life from The Lion King soundtrack until each and every vacationer made their way onto their room's adjoining balcony.

Some of the students were visibly unimpressed with the hotel's methodology, as seen in the above video, but many visitors had no problem getting into the groove of things and dancing along while holding their towels high above their heads like Rafiki did with Simba in the original 1994 Disney film.

Judging by the packed house in the video, the attraction was clearly a success.
