“Disney Kite-Tails” New to Animal Kingdom for WDW’s 50th Anniversary
From the Walt Disney World News and written by: Michele
So many fun announcements were made yesterday regarding Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary celebration. The biggest news was new nighttime shows at Magic Kingdom and Epcot, with “Disney Enchantment” and “HarmoniUs.” Disney fans everywhere rejoiced! There’s also new daytime entertainment stirring at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park.
Check out this artist rendering of “Disney KiteTails,” which will come alive several times daily at the Discovery River Amphitheater beginning Oct. 1. Performers will fly windcatchers and kites of all shapes and sizes, while out on the water elaborate three-dimensional kites – some stretching to 30 feet long – will depict Disney animal friends, including Simba, Zazu, Baloo and King Louie. These colorful creations will dance through the sky to the beat of favorite Disney songs in an uplifting, vibrant experience for the whole family.
The show will be where the now retired Rivers of Light took place. It also seems that Disney Kite-Tails will make use of jet skis to fly the kites, similar to how they did for Epcot Forever. The World’s Most Magical Celebration kicks off on October 1st. Who’s excited?
