UP! A Great Bird Adventure (was Flights of Wonder)
This attraction is closing December 31, 2017 to make way for a new show which will feature Russell and Dug from the Disney Pixar film "Up" as they discover new bird species from around the globe. The new show opens April 22. Duck! Owls or hawks may fly right above your head during a show starring more than 20 species of free-flying exotic birds and their talented animal handlers. Guano Joe (or Jane), a tour guide from Anandapur Tours, adds some comic relief to this conservation-themed show. Guests are selected from the audience to join in the action. Afterward, everyone has a chance to come down to ask questions, view the “stars” up close, and take photos. Sit near the aisles for the closest animal encounters. Outdoor, shaded theater. Outdoor queue is uncovered. Theater opens 15 minutes beforehand. No food or drink allowed. Leave strollers at the door. Wheelchair accessible. Assistive listening. Allie’s KidTip: “Volunteer to go on the stage! I’m too shy to do it, but it looks like fun.”Get a full copy of PassPorter's Walt Disney World guidebook here.

We were pleasantly surprised with this show. It is a great option for those of you who have done everything at this park... try something new and watch the show.

Same old bird show you can see at any zoo. They space can be used for something more Disney like.

Excellent bird show - educational and entertaining. One of my favorite memories with my kids is my older son's face during the funny one-on-one interactions with the handler and the birds. His eyes and smile could have lit up the world! Change up the script a little though Disney!

A bird show very similar to what your local zoo would have, but still very impressive and exciting for kiddos!

Good show but the script never changes, so if you have seen it once there is no real reason to go back every trip.

The avian performers fly right above the audience. A fun show.

Up-close experience with the birds, and I like how the audience is integrated into the show. Can be rough on a hot day, though.

A cute show and the birds zooming right past your head are amazing. Cannot wait for it to reopen later this summer with updates!

I skipped this for a number of years, but well worth a visit for an impressive show.

The birds are impressive. They need to update the storyline though.
