There will be "UP" close encounters each day with amazing winged creatures. This free-flying show will be performed multiple times daily.

  • Led by an avian enthusiast and bird experts, this unique experience features a close-up look at bird species from South America, North America, India, Africa, and other locations around the globe.
  • More than 15 species of birds make appearances, including toucans, parrots, macaws, and an African fish eagle with a magnificent 7-foot wingspan.
  • An original, authentic Indian musical score features themes from DisneyPixar’s UP.
