Disney's Animal Kingdom News for November 22, 2017: The end is near for Flights of Wonder

Pumpkins Everywhere: The Disney parks blog has a post all about the use of pumpkins for enrichment. Basically, enrichment is anything keepers do to try and engage the animals in captivity. It can take all sorts of forms, such as training sessions or hiding treats in exhibits. One way this is done at the Animal Kingdom is take all of those pumpkins used during Halloween festivities and let the animals play.

End of Flights: Flights of Wonder is an original attraction, dating back to the park's opening in April 1998. Recently, several rumors have circulated that the show is finished at the end of the year.  According to the BlogMickey, they have received confirmation that indeed December 31, 2017 will be the last show.  However, in further reading these reports, they seem to say a new animal show with birds will be replacing it. This seems more like a new script then something completely different. I believe Guano Joe will be leaving but you will still see many of the birds demonstrate their natural talents.

Park Hours for this week are...
Thursday November 23 8 am - 10 pm
Friday November 24 8 am - 10 pm

  1. Disney park changes their theme every Halloween. This year they chose Cinderella’s theme. The exterior and interior is unique as well. Thank you for sharing.
