Wildlife Wednesdays: Colorful Macaws Take Flight in New Experience Coming This Summer to Disney’s Animal Kingdom


The Disney Parks Blog announced a new experience coming to Disney's Animal Kingdom this summer. The show will feature macaws in free flight and it will be called, “Winged Encounters — The Kingdom Takes Flight."

Reports of macaws flying around Flights of Wonder have surfaced over the past few months and this show appears to be the motivation. Per the blog:

The macaws, with wingspans up to 60 inches, are now making short flights in the early morning hours at Disney’s Animal Kingdom in preparation for the debut of the new experience, which features six types of macaw: hyacinth, green-winged, blue and gold, scarlet, blue-throated and military.
