First Look At Upcoming ‘Disney KiteTails’ Show Coming To Disney’s Animal Kingdom


Disney has just offered a first look at one of their upcoming 50th Anniversary celebration shows coming to Walt Disney World. Disney’s KiteTails is the show featuring various kites and props that will debut on October 1 at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

The new Disney’s KiteTails show will take place in the Discovery River Theater and will happen several times daily.

The show will combine kites, props and watercraft to create a very unique and exciting experience.

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!

30 foot long, inflatable kites sounds like something to see.

Check out the video for a first look at the the upcoming show!

This actually sounds quite interesting and different. They’ve been doing a lot of unique types of events at Disney’s Animal Kingdom!
