In case you missed it, Disney announced that a new daytime show — Disney KiteTails — would be coming to Disney’s Animal Kingdom for the 50th anniversary. This news comes months after they announced that the nighttime show, Rivers of Light, was ending its run.
We have already seen construction moving quickly on the upcoming show, but now, as we continue to inch closer to the official debut of Disney KiteTails, we know that this daytime experience will have multiple showtimes throughout the day!
Disney KiteTails will show at various times throughout the day, specifically at 11:15 a.m., 12:15 p.m., 1:15 p.m., 3:15 p.m., 4:15 p.m. and 5:15 p.m. — allowing for Guests to fit this upcoming daytime show into their schedule whenever they can!
Guests can also now add Disney KiteTails into their plans on My Disney Experience, ensuring that you won’t miss out on this spectacular experience once it debuts on October 1.

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.
The Walt Disney World website describes the upcoming experience as:
Hearts and imaginations will soar as incredible kites and windcatchers dance through the air to the beat of beloved Disney songs during this high-flying performance at Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park. Be awed by elaborate, three-dimensional kites of Simba, Zazu, King Louie, Baloo and more as they take flight above the Discovery River Amphitheater—beginning October 1, 2021 during the 50th anniversary celebration of Walt Disney World Resort.
