Disney’s Animal Kingdom, the youngest of the four theme parks, just announced this week that it’s revamping the uber-popular Finding Nemo: The Musical. The new show will debut sometime next year.

Animal Kingdom is also ramping up to bring Guests the recently announced “KiteTails” show.

There are new announcements coming out every single day! Today is no different. Disney has released the daily showtimes for Animal Kingdom’s all-new “KiteTails” experience, and we couldn’t wait to share them with you!

Disney says “KiteTails” will be awesome:

“Hearts and imaginations will soar as incredible kites and windcatchers dance through the air to the beat of beloved Disney songs during this high-flying performance at Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park. Be awed by elaborate, three-dimensional kites of Simba, Zazu, King Louie, Baloo and more as they take flight above the Discovery River Amphitheater—beginning October 1, 2021, during the 50th anniversary celebration of Walt Disney World Resort.”

“KiteTails” will have multiple performances throughout the day. The showtimes begin at 11:15 a.m., and the last performance is at 5:15 p.m.

You can see this fascinating display of colors and characters at 11:15 a.m., 12:15 p.m., 1:15 p.m., 3:15 p.m., 4:15 p.m. and 5:15 p.m., so you can fit it into your Animal Kingdom day’s schedule whenever you like. The show takes place at the Discovery River Theatre near Dinoland, U.S.A. at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

See characters from many of your most favorite Disney and PIXAR films take flight in this display of beautifully designed props and inflatable kites, some of which are 30 feet long!

The new experience can be your experience, beginning October 1.





About Becky Burkett

I'm an enthusiastic writer who finds joy in random things like cold weather, snow, "I Love Lucy," "The Andy Griffith Show," journals full of blank paper, countdowns to Christmas, the month of December, "Toy Story," "Sleeping Beauty," my 4 kids, my 4 shih tsus, Disney Parks history, Imagineering and visiting the parks. I think Walt Disney is the standard against which genius should be measured. I love to write about Disney Parks, Disney history, all things Imagineering and PIXAR. I adore the colors, story and art direction of Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" (Team Make it Blue!), and "Toy Story" is life (minus "Toy Story 4"). I believe Walt Disney was so much more than an entertainment and theme park tycoon; I believe he was a savant with a vision for life and how it could be if happiness and kindness are strived for. I love Biergarten at EPCOT and 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian. You can find me croonin' with the birdies at the Enchanted Tiki Room, chillin' on the PeopleMover or hangin' with Woody and the gang at Toy Story Land. I'm always looking for Imagineers in the parks, and I'd rather meet Joe Rohde and Tony Baxter than anyone in Hollywood! Hey, if you dream it, you really can do it!
