Just when you thought all the celebrations were taking place in Magic Kingdom and Epcot on Oct. 1st, Disney released that Animal Kingdom will join in the celebration by presenting ‘Disney Kite Tails’. I love kites and this looks amazing. I can’t wait to take an walk on the wild side and head to Animal Kingdom after Oct. 1st. I will be sharing pictures here and also at The Infinity Mouse. (You can find this all Disney blog site on Facebook, Instagram and at theinfinitymouse.net). Let me know how I can help you plan a magical vacation to Disney World to experience this thrilling 18-month 50th anniversary celebration.
Thank you Disney Destinations for the picture/video and information on this exciting new addition at Animal Kingdom.
Beginning Oct. 1 as part of the Walt Disney World Resort 50th anniversary celebration, “Disney KiteTails” will take the magic of nature and Disney storytelling to new heights, immersing everyone in a gala performance of color and movement at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park.
It’s all set to happen several times daily at the Discovery River Theater, near DinoLand U.S.A. As you make your way into the space, you’re joined by a team of performers bringing with them a colorful collection of oversized props and kites adorned with Disney animal friends from “The Little Mermaid,” “a Bug’s Life” and “Finding Nemo.” Original, worldbeat arrangements of favorite Disney tunes fill the air, and the excitement builds toward the launch of an impressive show of kites over the lagoon.
Watercraft zoom into view, pulling with them dynamic kite trains and enormous, three-dimensional kites depicting familiar characters from “The Lion King” or “The Jungle Book.” From one performance to another, you may see Baloo the bear dancing in the sky or Zazu the red-billed hornbill chasing after Simba. These remarkable kites, some as large as 30 feet in length, are inflated by moving through the air, allowing characters like King Louie or Timon and Pumbaa to soar like never before!
The team behind “Disney KiteTails” has been hard at work getting everything ready to open Oct. 1. Stay tuned for regular updates on all the exciting things coming as part of “The World’s Most Magical Celebration”!
