New Macaw Experience now being performed daily at Disney’s Animal Kingdom! “Winged Encounters-The Kingdom Takes Flight”. a new animal experience with flocks of macaws flying over and around Discovery Island, is being performed daily at 9:15 and 10:15 am as well as 1 and 2 pm. Because the birds are still training and learning their flight pattern, shows are subject to change. There are six types of macaws in the experience: hyacinth, green-winged, blue and gold, scarlet, blue throated, and military. The macaws, with wingspans of up to 60 inches, fly over Discovery Island and land on a perch near the Dinoland USA bridge. During the close-up encounters, avian experts share conservation stories about the macaws, the majority of which are endangered in their native Central and South America.
New “It all Started with a Mouse” Experience at Disney’s Animal Kingdom! “It all Started with a Mouse” is located at Rafiki’s Planet Watch and makes a great addition to the itineraries of animal lovers of all ages. During the show, Conservation Station’s animal ambassadors including sheep, parrots, porcupines, birds of prey, and Kunekune pigs help tell stories and make appearances in, around, and even above the audience.
