Disney Shares a Video Look at “Disney KiteTails”, Coming to Disney’s Animal Kingdom October 1st

Hi everyone!

Disney shares a first look today at “Disney KiteTails”, which is debuting at Disney’s Animal Kingdom park on October 1st, 2021 as part of Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary. Read below for more information about “Disney KiteTails” below the video!

Shawn Slater on the Disney Parks Blog says about the show,

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!

“Disney KiteTails” is in addition to the nighttime spectaculars “Disney Enchantment” at Magic Kingdom and “Harmonious” at Epcot as part of The World’s Most Magical Celebration.
