“Disney KiteTails” launched on October 1, 2021, at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park in Walt Disney World. This new entertainment experience comes alive multiple times throughout the day at Discovery River Amphitheater, featuring performers flying windcatchers and kites of all shapes and sizes. Out on the water, elaborate three-dimensional kites – some stretching to 30 feet long – depict Disney animal friends, including Simba, Zazu, Baloo and King Louie.

Seven Seas Lagoon / Bay Lake
Electrical Water Pageant

This nightly "parade" was first performed on October 25, 1971 during the dedication of the Polynesian Luau. While old-fashioned by today's standards, it's still fun to head to the resort beachfronts to watch it go by. The water pageant can be seen from the boat-loading area at the Magic Kingdom, as well as all each resort around Bay Lake. It normally starts at 9:00 each night, but double-check the My Disney Experience app to be sure. There are two segments, one is a King Neptune theme, the other a salute to America.

New pixie dusted scenes are being added to this fan favorite nighttime water pageant, including a float representing Cinderella Castle. Guests will also hear an Electrical Water Pageant-like version of the 50th Anniversary’s theme song, The Magic is Calling. Guests who love current iteration of the Electrical Water Pageant will be happy to know that the full original show will still take place, with the additions “bookending” the pageant.

The Electrical Water Pageant usually follows this schedule:

(You may want to check with the resort just in case the schedule changes or if it's canceled due to the weather that day.)
