Here is what Disney Parks Blog had to say about the new show coming to Disney’s Animal Kingdom starting October 1. The show is called Disney KiteTails and appears to be a colorful show depicting the beauty of animals:

There’s also new daytime entertainment stirring at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park. Check out this artist rendering of “Disney KiteTails,” which will come alive several times daily at the Discovery River Amphitheater beginning Oct. 1. Performers will fly windcatchers and kites of all shapes and sizes, while out on the water elaborate three-dimensional kites – some stretching to 30 feet long – will depict Disney animal friends, including Simba, Zazu, Baloo and King Louie. These colorful creations will dance through the sky to the beat of favorite Disney songs in an uplifting, vibrant experience for the whole family.


This is not the only new offering coming to Walt Disney World for the Resort’s 50th Anniversary Celebration. Disney also announced that a brand new nighttime spectacular will debut at Magic Kingdom. The show is titled, Disney Enchantment, and you can read more details on that show here. While Happily Ever After is returning to nightly performances starting July 1, it will be replaced by Disney Enchantment on October 1. No word yet on if Happily Ever After will return once the 50th-anniversary celebrations end.
