 Walt Disney World has added yet another piece to their 50th Anniversary event “The World’s Most Magical Celebration."

While Magic Kingdom will have “Disney Enchantment," Epcot will have “Harmonious” and the new “Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure” ride, and Disney’s Hollywood Studios will showcase the Tower of Terror as a “Beacon of Magic,” Animal Kingdom plans to not only illuminate the Tree of Life as a “Beacon of Magic,” but also offer a new kind of show featuring elaborate kites.

"KiteTails" will be an upcoming daytime lagoon show at the Discovery River Theater, set to premiere on Oct. 1.

The show will feature "elaborate, three-dimensional kites of Simba, Zazu, King Louie, Baloo and more" as kites and windcatchers dance through the air to the beat of Disney songs, according to the Disney website. 

Some of the kites are expected to be as large as 30-feet in length. 

A behind the scenes video on the kites released earlier this year by Disney can be found here.
