Flights of Wonder

At the heart of this feathered showcase, is Disney's message of conservation. It begins with a graceful and mystic overview of the majestic avian world, where guests can wonder at the beauty of some truly magnificent animals. A lighthearted tour guide helps to showcase the colorful personality of birds for the audience to get to know.
