Animal Kingdom Update: Flights of Wonder Officially Closes (PART 1)

As we noticed during our latest visit to the park, Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park continues to be quite busy despite the fact that the holiday season is officially behind us. While the majority of Guests continue to be found in the new AVATAR-themed land, most of the attractions in the parks had 40- to 50-minute wait times throughout the day (we visited the park yesterday afternoon). That said, let's not focus too much on the crowds as there are plenty of news to report this time.


Welcome to Disney's Animal Kingdom:

The hub of the park didn't appear to be overly busy:

The umbrellas and benches used to create a queue to access Pandora were still in place:

The Tree of Life is such a beautiful icon:

Here is where we started to really notice that the park was still very crowded:

There's plenty of entertainment in every corner of the park:

While walking toward Asia, we noticed that some of the faux leaves recently fell from the Tree of Life:

The leaves can be seen a little more clearly in the following photos:

Work on the Caravan Stage Theater has resumed now that Flights of Wonder officially closed to the public:

Many people (including us) were wondering why the theater looked so bare. It appears that they were waiting for the show to close before continuing to work on the theater itself:

The theater will soon house a new show featuring characters from Disney•Pixar’s “UP”:

A temporary cart has been set up across from the theater:

A Cast Member used to share some interesting details about the Asian culture in this spot, which is now a seating area:
