'Up! A Great Bird Adventure' Review
Up! A Great Bird Adventure, the revamp of the previous bird show Flights of Wonder, debuted last month at Disney's Animal Kingdom. Much like Flights of Wonder, the new show features a number of bird species and highlights their natural talents and traits. This new version of the shop sees a re-write of the script, a few new tricks, and the inclusion of Doug and Russell from Disney's computer-animated film 'Up!'
The show begins with a dancing storyteller who projects a mystical, ethereal, Mother Earth vibe.
A few minutes later that feeling Doug and Russel make their entrance and the show's tone takes a decidedly Disney Junior vibe.
If you want to play a small part in the show, you'll want to position yourself at the inside end of bench in the floor section of seating (not the bleachers).
Some of the birds you will see...
My opinion of the show: I think it's worth seeing at least once. For us, Flights of Wonder wasn't a must-do on every visit either, but we'd stop and see it if we were killing time between FastPass reservations or if we had a Disney newbie with us. Teens and adults will be less thrilled with this incarnation of the bird show, and likely find themselves rolling their eyes more than once. The pre-school set, on the other hand, are going to love it. An eight year-old girl sitting next to us proclaimed it "cool," so there you have it.
