KiteTails Show CLOSING in Disney World Soon

Disney World’s 50th Anniversary brought several new shows and attractions to the parks. One of those was a fun show at Disney’s Animal Kingdom featuring kites in the shape of Disney characters.

Timon and Pumba

Disney KiteTails has characters from The Lion King and The Jungle Book as intricate 3D kite creations, flying above the Discovery River Lagoon throughout the day. If you’ve loved this show as much as we do,  we unfortunately have some very sad news.

Disney KiteTails will be ending after September 30th, 2022. Disney’s website has been updated to announce that the final performance will be on that date.


Until October 2022, you can watch KiteTails throughout the day, as it’s presented in a walk-by format. That means that it runs several times throughout the day (about every 20 minutes) from 9:10AM to 3:10PM. Each show lasts about 5 minutes. Be sure to check out the My Disney Experience app to see when the show is running during your visit!

Hey There!

At the D23 Expo this year, we also heard that the 50th Anniversary fireworks show in EPCOT (Harmonious) is going to end and be replaced with a new nighttime spectacular, but that change won’t be happening until sometime late next year.


If you’re hoping to catch one more performance of KiteTails in Animal Kingdom, be sure to visit within the next couple of weeks before it ends. Keep following DFB for more of the latest news from Disney World!
