Rafiki’s Planet Watch Reopens with Enhancements

© Disney

Join us this Summer as Rafiki’s Planet watch reopens at Disney’s Animal Kingdom!

The Affection Section and the Wildlife Express will be back up and running if you travel to Animal Kingdom this Summer. The Affection Section, a petting zoo full of sweet animals that you can touch, brush, and love on will return. It has been spruced up and enhanced but it is still the same place where guests of all ages can interact and care for animals as well as see how the Cast Members care for them.

The entire land will still place a large emphasis on Conservation. This current refurbishment will add a large presence of The Lion King which also has heavy themes of conservation and taking only what you need.

Plan a trip and come see all the new changes over at Disney’s Animal Kingdom!
