Impending Changes to Disney KiteTails May Indicate Removal of Performers at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

The impending changes to Disney KiteTails at Disney’s Animal Kingdom may indicate that ground performers will no longer be included.


Disney just announced that changes would be coming to Disney KiteTails. Disney stated that they are “shifting the focus of the show so guests will be able to experience [it] from anywhere around the Discovery River Lagoon, with shorter and more frequent performances throughout the day.”


Ground performers are usually seen in the Dinoland side of the Discovery River Amphitheater for a preshow and as part of the show itself, but if Disney is changing the format of the show to make it visible from all around the lagoon, it may mean these acts are cut from the performance, eliminating portions of the show.

  1. The entire Discovery River at Animal Kingdom is really under utilized. So much potential there for great guest experiences not presently fulfilled.

  2. That was such a cool feature. I really enjoyed that the most as the kites were more crafty that the performers held. What is going on with this company? SMH
