PHOTOS: Baloo Makes Full Recovery, Disney KiteTails Resumes Normal Operations at Animal Kingdom

Disney KiteTails, the new daytime show at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, has resumed normal operations following an incident yesterday where the Baloo kite was stuck in a tree.


At the time, it was unknown if Baloo had ripped or been otherwise damaged, but either he was unscathed or the repair team did quick work as he returned to the skies for the first showing this morning.


Meanwhile, reports had come in that King Louie had ripped during the same show in another tree encounter. He too was back in flight above the Discovery River Amphitheater today.
