    Hi! How can I find out the times for the winged encounters birds in flight show, specifically in the MDE app?

    Jambo, Katy! Welcome back to planDisney and thanks for stopping by with such a great question!

    Katy, I absolutely love Animal Encounters: Winged Encounters - The Kingdom Takes Flight at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. It is breathtaking when the gorgeous, colorful birds soar by the Tree of Life and swoop down to show their majestic beauty. I am always awestruck at the sight of it, and I'm more than happy to help you find out when to catch this stunning show.

    To find the showtimes for Winged Encounters on the My Disney Experience app, I find that the easiest way is to log into your My Disney Experience app, tap the search icon at the bottom of the screen and then type "Winged Encounters" into the search bar. When it pops up, click "Animal Encounters: Winged Encounters - The Kingdom Takes Flight" to see the showtimes and location and even add the show to your plans. 

    You can also find Winged Encounters and other entertainment on the app by tapping the location icon at the bottom of the screen, filtering in Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, and changing "Wait Times" at the top of the screen to "Entertainment." You can tap "Show List" to see your list of magical, wild entertainment and tap the show to see the showtimes. Enjoy!

    Katy, since you seem like someone after my own Disney-loving and animal-loving heart, I must recommend that you check out "Magic of Disney's Animal Kingdom" on Disney+ if you have not already. One of the episodes shows how the Cast Members train this free-flying flock to put on such a gorgeous show! All of the episodes are so interesting and educational, and they really make you see Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park and all the love that goes into it in a whole new, lovely light. Ten out of ten! Highly recommend!

    I hope this helps, Katy, and I hope you have the most magical time on your wild adventure! Please stop by any time with any other questions you may have.
