A new experience is coming to Disney’s Animal Kingdom at Walt Disney World Resort! Stars of the show are flocks of macaws flying over and around Discovery Island. The team that inspires guests with their “Flights of Wonder” show are helping with this new entertainment in collaboration with Disney Creative Entertainment and it is called “Winged Encounters – The Kingdom Takes Flight.” Watch for this to debut summer 2014!
The macaws, with wingspans up to 60 inches, are now making short flights in the early morning hours at the theme park in preparation for the debut of the new experience, which features six types of macaw: hyacinth, green-winged, blue and gold, scarlet, blue-throated and military.
In addition to seeing these colorful birds in flight, during up-close encounters, avian experts will be on hand to share stories about the macaws, the majority of which are endangered in their native Central and South America.
Sounds really neat! Can’t wait to see it!
