Once beloved Disney show sees noticeable drop in attendance, guests say


A once-loved show at Walt Disney World Resort is seeing a noticeable drop in attendance, according to Disney Park visitors.

No matter which Disney park you frequent, whether it’s Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, or EPCOT, you’re sure to have a magical time with plenty to experience.

At Disney’s Animal Kingdom, there are many fun and unique attractions, including Expedition Everest, Kali River Rapids, It’s Tough To Be A Bug, Avatar Flight of Passage, Na’vi River Journey, The Festival of the Lion King, and more Again.

However, it looks like one show – Disney’s KiteTails – is seeing a major drop in crowd levels.

User @beautynbeastdw shared a video of participating in the show at a recent show.

As you can see in the video, there is hardly anyone to watch the show despite the grandstand space for the crowds.

Although nothing has been officially announced, much of the lack of crowds at the show can be attributed to the fact that Disney pulled all official showtimes earlier this year. Disney KiteTails is now much shorter than before and many are wondering how long the show could last.
