See when its last performance will be.
Guests can catch KiteTails at the Animal Kingdom lagoon. Three-dimensional kites and colorful wind catchers dance in the air to classic Disney songs. This 10-minute show consists of two version.
The first show inspired by The Lion King featuring Simba, Zazu, and Mufasa. Favorite songs from the lion King played during the show. The Jungle Book featured King Louie, Baloo, and monkey and elephant wind catchers. Our favorite songs from the Jungle Book played during the show.
The kites are very oversized and catch your attention as they pass guests from every direction. The smaller kites along with the wind catchers are very fun. The kite movement mimicked their playful movements so well.
Earlier this summer we shared that KiteTails’ future was up in the air (pun intended) with the showtimes removed from the website. It appeared that in between shows, we would see the kites throughout the Discovery River. However, that is not the case anymore.
According to the Disney World website, the show will cease on September 30, 2022. That means the show will have only had one year to delight Guests. Unfortunately, much of the 50th anniversary entertainment has not delighted Guests. This show joins Harmonious and Enchantment in getting cut from the parks.
Enjoy Disney KiteTails until its last offering on September 30, 2022.
It’s safe to say the 50th anniversary has been a dud. We were all really looking forward to seeing the magic that Disney could pull out of its hat, but all we were left with was several lackluster shows. Here’s to a great big beautiful tomorrow!
