We try and do something new and different on every trip to Disney World.
Last month, we were lucky to catch the Winged Encounters bird show at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. We had never seen it before.
The short 5-minute show focuses on macaws and bird conservation.
The birds fly in (and out) while avian experts tell interesting facts about them.
Each show is unique and uses different birds. Our show had 5 different kinds of macaws in it, about 25 birds!
The featured macaws are hyacinth, green-winged, blue and gold, scarlet, military and blue-throated. The Hyacinth Macaw is now extinct in the wild. 😦 That was the bird that starred in the animated movie, “Rio”.
You can see the 10:30am show, then see a show with completely different birds at 1:30pm!
A Pandemonium of Macaw Parrots
Watch in wonder as the winged stars of the show take off near the Tree of Life. Like a living kaleidoscope, the brilliantly colored birds swoop and soar over Discovery Island.
Keep your peepers peeled for appearances by 6 species of South American macaw: hyacinth, green-winged, blue and gold, scarlet, blue-throated and military. The largest have an incredible wingspan of around 48 inches.
Gather around as our resident bird care experts unlock the secrets of these fascinating creatures—and even answer questions from the audience.
It’s the ultimate bird-watching experience!
Show Times (most days): 9:30am, 10:30am, 11:30am, 1:30pm, 2:30pm, 3:30pm

We’ve written two books about our time working and playing at Disney World.
Both are available on Amazon.com: Two Girls and a Mouse Tale and Adventures in the Animal Kingdom.
