Disney KiteTails is the newest daytime show at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Despite the creativity and uniqueness of the show itself, it is safe to say it has run into its fair share of issues.

Disney KiteTails officially debuted to Guests yesterday, October 1, in honor of Disney World’s 50th anniversary. However, even though it has only been showing to Guests for two days, another issue has arises.

This afternoon when Guests were visiting Animal Kingdom, during one performance of Disney KiteTails, they noticed that the Baloo kite had a crash landing and ended up stuck in the trees and bushes.
