Description And Comments

Asia’s theater has presented a show featuring live birds for years. Feathered Friends in Flight debuted in summer 2020 and is the best—and highest-rated—version ever done. The show’s hosts are some of Disney’s animal trainers, who explain different bird species’ habitats and characteristics. A number of species are represented, with plenty more flying overhead. The show is fast-paced, informative, and entertaining for everyone. In many ways the show is a model of how other shows in the park might work.

Like its predecessor, Feathered Friends focuses on the birds’ natural talents and characteristics, which far surpass any tricks learned from humans— don’t expect parrots riding bikes or cockatoos playing tiny pianos. A Brattleboro, Vermont, reader found the birds extremely compelling:

The birds are thrilling, and we especially appreciated the fact that their antics were not the results of training against the grain but actual survival techniques that the birds use in the wild.

Touring Tips

Feathered Friends plays at the stadium near the bridge on the walkway into Asia. Though the stadium is covered, it’s not air-conditioned; thus, early-morning and late-afternoon performances are more comfortable. To play it safe, get to the stadium about 10–15 minutes before showtime.
