Flights of Wonder, the show featuring birds from around the world at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, will have its last shows on December 31, 2017. It will be replaced by an all-new animal show featuring Russell and Dug from the Disney•Pixar film UP.

The show will offer guests the chance to see Senior Wilderness Explorer Russell and his furry friend Dug as they discover species of birds from around the world in their newest adventure at the Caravan Theater in Anandapur village. There will be “UP” close encounters each day with amazing winged creatures!
