We are so excited for all of the new entertainment offerings that will be coming to Walt Disney World for the 50th anniversary. Check out our first sneak peek of this wonderful new entertainment offering coming to Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
The 50th anniversary begins October 1, 2021 and will last for 18 months! The celebration will include new entertainment and attractions, as well as transformations in all four Theme Parks! We were so excited to get our first glimpse of the Beacons of Light that will illuminate Spaceship Earth. Check out this gorgeous transformation HERE.
In Epcot, Harmonious will also debut on October 1! We have been anticipating this great show for quite some time. We can’t wait to experience this entertainment offering.

Disney Kite Tails
This new show, Disney Kite Tails, will debut on October 1, 2021. This show will “take the magic of nature and Disney storytelling to new heights, immersing everyone in a gala performance of color and movement.”
Guests will be able to enjoy this show at the Discovery River Theatre near DinoLand U.S.A. At this time, we do not have a performance schedule, but we have been told that multiple performances will be available throughout the day.

Which characters will be featured in the Disney Kite Tails? Get ready for oversized props and kites featuring friends from “The Little Mermaid,” “a bug’s life,” and “Finding Nemo.”
These will be presented in the theatre along with our favorite Disney music to prepare Guests for the beautiful displays that over the lagoon. This will allow Guests to see some kites up close, and then also experience the majestic 20 foot to 30 foot kites soar in the sky.
Show Director, Mike Renfrow, shares that this is, “An opportunity to bring the magic of Disney storytelling and allow it to soar like never before.”
Watercraft will be used to allow large three-dimensional kites, kites with extended tails, and even inflatable kites to glide across the lagoon. This will include our favorite Disney pals from “The Lion King” or the “Jungle Book.”
“You may see Baloo the bear dancing in the sky or Zazu the red-billed hornbill chasing after Simba.” This will truly be such a fun display for all Guests to be able to enjoy.
