Feathered Friends in Flight Bird Show at Animal Kingdom

Feathered Friends in Flight is the name of the latest bird show at Disney’s Animal Kingdom in Walt Disney World. This performance debuted when the theme park reopened to the public back in July of 2020. Whether or not it’s here to stay remains a mystery.

But if you follow along you are probably aware that I’ve been updating all the attraction reviews on the site and adding in a few that were missing. With a few exceptions (that can’t be completed at this time) this is the last one.

Just know if you are visiting the Animal Kingdom over the next few months you can expect to see Feathered Friends in Flight. While there’s also the option that Up! A Great Bird Adventure could return.

Let’s face it, the Up bird show has never met to rave reviews. And if you ever saw its predecessor, Flights of Wonder, you would know why.

The performance is held inside the Caravan Stage Theater on the pathway between Africa and Asia.

The performance features bird specialists sharing information about the subjects as they fly across the stage. Some might even perform a few tricks, depending on what kind of day they are having.

The information provided is not only educational but entertaining as well.

During this visit I came in a few minutes late and sat at the back of the theater. There’s a bird perch on each side of the back of the auditorium. So even if you aren’t near the stage, there’s an opportunity to see birds up close and personal.

Here’s a look at how the theater is set up right now with social distancing measures in place.

Every other row is available for seating.
