Come and join us for another installment of the WDW-Memories podcast, where I try to make it possible for you relive your Walt Disney World Memories when you can't actually be there.
We’re flying through spring and heading strong into Summer Vacation. While most people are planning trips, some of them maybe a trip to Walt Disney World, I am looking towards January for mine. Yep, that’s our Disney Cruise, but in the meantime all we do is wait and read up online about the cruise. This is the time that just seems to drag on. I know soon things will begin happening again though, so I look forward to that day. Meanwhile, lets get back to Walt Disney World and blaze a trail through the forests Disney’s Animal Kingdom to the back and catch a showing of the Flights of Wonder.
So how many of us are suckers for bird shows? I don’t know what it is about them but I love bird shows, or animal shows for that matter. And this is not just a bird show. As is always the case, Disney has figured out how to weave a storyline into a show and take it to the next level. I love the stage, you really feel like you’re sitting in an old ruin in the jungle. And the birds dive and swoop so low, you can’t help but feel like you’re in the middle of the show, instead of on the outside looking in.
Unfortunately when I was planning this memory, I didn’t leave much time for you to write in and tell me your favorites. There were a few likes on the Facebook page, and even one comment that said that they had never seen it, which I sadly think might be the case in general. A lot of people tend to skip this show, thinking they’ve seen a bird show before, so why go see another, and they’d be wrong. Like I’ve said, this show is different, and maybe I’ll share a video of this attraction in the near future that will help prove my point
In the meantime, we’re going to go back to 2006 on our anniversary trip. Today, my wife and I are joined by her parents for a day in the parks. They had come over from their home in Tampa, and we got them a night in the Animal Kingdom Lodge as an early Christmas gift. We’d gotten to the Animal Kingdom shortly after opening and raced back to ride Expedition Everest, then over to Kilimanjaro Safaris, and back to Everest. After that we’ve started making our way through Asia and came by just minutes before the next show, so this seemed like the perfect time to stop and watch. We’ll join our memory after already being let in and taking our seat. It’s only a few seconds before our show starts, so you won’t have to wait long before our first bird comes out.
Today’s memory is in binaural, so I’d suggest putting those headphones on to fully immerse yourself in the memory.
Now sit back. Relax. Close your eyes. And come with me as we are amazed by some very exotic and amazing birds.
