Rafiki’s Planet Watch to Reopen this Summer at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

One of my daughters’ favorite places to visit at Animal Kingdom was Rafiki’s Planet Watch and she was sad when it closed earlier this year. I’m super excited to share that Rafiki’s Planet Watch, the Affection Section and the Wildlife Express will fully reopen this summer. The area will include a few new enhancements and join the celebration of all things “The Lion King.”

We are really excited to learn that Rafiki’s Planet Watch will still include the animal encounters as well as new experiences that draw from Disney’s rich heritage of wildlife animation, featuring a celebration of “The Lion King.” My daughter is interested in working with animals when she gets older and really enjoys seeing the importance that Disney places on animal care and conservation in their parks and around the world.

Rafiki’s Plant Watch is the perfect place to see what conservation efforts Disney is working on as well as learning more about some of the animals at Animal Kingdom. You will absolutely want to check this out on your next visit to Animal Kingdom Park.
