Meet the Macaws

Watch in wonder as the winged stars of this show take off near the Tree of Life. Like a living kaleidoscope, the colorful flight quickly descends into Discovery Island—leaving Guests like you in a state of mac-awe!

Keep your peepers peeled for appearances by all 6 shades of the specimen: hyacinth, green-winged, blue and gold, scarlet, blue-throated and military. Each features a wingspan of up to 60 inches, which you can witness firsthand as they soar up, down and all around the heart of Disney’s Animal Kingdom park!

Plus, don’t miss your chance to listen along as experts provide a birds-eye view of these magnificent creatures—from the macaw’s fascinating natural behaviors to conservation efforts taking place in both Central and South America.
