FLIGHTS OF WONDER
You might feel as though you are entering a crumbling fortress as you enter the Caravan Stage outdoor amphitheater in Animal Kingdom's Asia, where Flights of Wonder is performed several times daily.
On the surface, Flights of Wonder appears to be a light, whimsical show starring and about birds, but it has at its core deeper, more serious conservation themes.
The show begins with an almost mystical overview of our feathered friends, and a variety of birds gracefully swoop down from the set and over the audience's heads to the stage.
After this introduction, a trainer comes on stage and showcases the natural abilities of a number of birds, including macaws, a crowned crane, and different types of hawks.
arrival of silly "tour guide" Guano Joe injects an
amount of humor into the show, and he, along with the audience, gradually
learns the importance of mankind's conservation efforts. Certain birds
also perform some stunts, including a singing parrot named Groucho
and a hawk who has been trained to snatch paper money from an audience
member's extended hand. At the end of the performance, the handlers
will bring out an American bald eagle and other birds.
Check your Times Guide for show times - generally on stage 5 times a day.
For the best views, try to sit close to the stage.
Do not rush out when the show is over. The bird handlers will bring one or two owls or other birds to the edge of the stage for you to get an up close look at, ask questions and photograph!
This attraction is wheelchair/ECV accessible.
If it is raining, you may see an abreviated show which actually is more educational than show.
The nearest restrooms are to your right as you exit this attraction.

Disney Characters are typically not found in this part of Asia. Check your daily Times Guide for times and locations of character greeting opportunities elsewhere in the Animal Kingdom.
