PHOTOS: New Disney KiteTails Banners Added to Discovery River Amphitheater in Disney’s Animal Kingdom

We’re only a few days away from Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary. Disney’s Animal Kingdom will be celebrating with the launch of Disney KiteTails, a new daytime show. Disney has been preparing Discovery River Amphitheater for the new show by refurbishing benches and hanging new character banners. More KiteTails banners have been added to the amphitheater and work has continued on the kite corrals.

We also saw some sort of work being done to the railings on one of the amphitheater pathways.

We believe the small huts on docks to the side of the amphitheater are corrals for the kites.

The two large huts still have green scrims on the front. The backs have not been completely enclosed.

One of the smaller huts is still just a framework.

There’s a small portion of blue cloth on the side of the hut at the very end.

Another small hut is completely covered in tarps.
