Disney has announced the opening date of their new attraction, "Up! A Great Bird Adventure," at Animal Kingdom.

The show, which debuts April 22, 2018, is based on the Disney-Pixar movie Up and will feature the characters Russell and Dug introducing birds from around the world up-close for guests.

The show will replace Flights of Wonder, which closed at the end of last year.

April 22 also marks the 20-year anniversary for Disney's Animal Kingdom.
