Disney KiteTails Soaring to Disney’s Animal Kingdom for Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary Celebration

Today Walt Disney World made an announcement about many of the offerings that are coming for its 50th-anniversary celebration. “The World’s Most Magical Celebration” will kick off on October 1, 2021 and last for 18 months. This celebration will include new nighttime spectaculars, cast member nametags, the opening of a new attraction, and also a new daytime show at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

Disney KiteTails is a new daytime show that will take place at the Discovery River Amphitheater multiple times each day. It will include live performers who will perform with various types of windcatchers and kites. These kites will be of all shapes and sizes. There will also be kites out on the water that will be 3-dimensional and depict different Disney characters. Some of these will be as long as 30 feet! Some of the characters that will be depicted include  Simba, Zazu, Baloo and King Louie. These kites promise to be colorful and dance in the skies to the beat of some favorite Disney songs. The whole show promises to be “an uplifting, vibrant experience for the whole family.”

The addition of Disney KiteTails will be just a part of “The World’s Most Magical Celebration” when it starts on October 1, 2021. That day will also see the start of the Beacons of Magic each night at the Disney parks at Walt Disney World. Disney characters, led by Mickey and Minnie, will debut their new EARidescent outfits. Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure will also open at EPCOT. The celebration will be full of magical surprises around every corner.
