Rafiki's Planet Watch

Environmental education and a backstage look at the care of Disney's Animal Kingdom's many animal residents is the mission of this small, out of the way section of the park.

Attractions

Wildlife Express Train. You have to catch the steam train from Africa (hang a right past Mombasa Marketplace and look for the station) to visit this area. You also get a peek backstage at the animal enclosures along the way.

Habitat Habit! is the longish path between the train and the Conservation Station. Look for the display of cotton-top tamarins.



Conservation Station. Features interactive educational displays and films plus a look at the park's veterinary medicine facilities, animal surgery, and nutrition center. There's also animal demonstrations and character greetings (often Rafiki himself) throughout the day.

Affection Section. Kids can get up-close and personal with domestic animals at this petting zoo.

Dining

There are no restaurants here, but there is often a snack or drink cart or two outside the Conservation Station.

Shopping

Out of the Wild is a small shop with animal toys and trinkets.

Where To?

The only place you can go from here is back to Africa on the train.
