Walt Disney World to Open New Show Featuring Characters from UP

In another edition of the 12 Days of Disney Parks Christmas announcements on Disney Parks Blog, we have learned about a whole new show that is set to open at Disney’s Animal Kingdom in the spring of 2018.  The show will include Russell and Dug from Disney•Pixar’s heartwarming movie, UP.  The new show will be about Russell and Dug discovering different species of birds from around the world.  There will also be encounters for guests with the birds, too.  The show will open just in time for the 20th anniversary of Disney’s Animal Kingdom, too.

Of course the addition of this new show will mean a closure coming to the park.  The show will take over the location where Flights of Wonder is currently performed.  The show will continue to be performed throughout the month of December.  The final show will be on December 31st, 2017 in order to start preparing for the new show to open to guests.

We will post more updates as soon as we have them.  Be sure to go and visit Flight of Wonder one last time while you still can, too! It looks like we will probably see many of the favorite birds and creatures from the current show make an appearance in the new show at least!

What do you all think about this new UP-themed show replacing Flights of Wonder at Disney’s Animal Kingdom?

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
