Summer is sadly coming to an end, which means certain offerings at the Disney Parks are also ending. “KiteTails,” a show we have all come to love, will sadly be ending at the end of this month. Disney released the following statement regarding the ending of the show:
“As you know, Disney KiteTails debuted at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park for the launch of the 50th-anniversary celebration of Walt Disney World Resort. After this first year, we will transition the entertainment on Discovery River Lagoon to the Flotillas. The last flight for Disney KiteTails will be September 30, 2022.
We look forward to seeing our guests continue waving to their Disney Friends cruising by on Flotillas, embracing Disney pals with up-close encounters, and more to come as we introduce our Festive holiday season offerings in the months ahead.”
If you have never seen KiteTails and plan to visit Animal Kingdom before the end of this month, we highly recommend you catch a showing of this heartwarming show on the water. Your heart and imagination will soar as larger-than-life kites and colorful props dance through the air to the beat of beloved Disney songs. Enjoy unique shows themed to two beloved Disney animated classics:
- The Lion King, featuring kites inspired by Simba, Zazu and more
- The Jungle Book, featuring kites inspired by King Louie, Baloo and more
This is somewhat sad news that the show is coming to an end, but for now, we look forward to all the exciting holiday offerings that will soon be available, and we are excited that we will still get to wave to our Disney friends on the Flotillas!
