Animation Experience Coming to Disney’s Animal Kingdom This Summer
Rafiki’s Planet Watch at Disney’s Animal Kingdom in Walt Disney World is set to reopen as of July 11. When it reopens, Guest favorites such as the Affection Section and the Wildlife Express Train will be making their much-anticipated reintroduction. But when it reopens, there will also be a new experience at Rafiki’s Planet Watch. The Animation Experience at Conservation Station is inspired by Disney’s rich heritage of wildlife animation and Walt Disney’s own personal passion to make sure animators had access to develop realistic characters and settings by spending time with wildlife.
The Animation Experience at Conservation Station will celebrate Disney’s “The Lion King” and offer Guests the opportunity to learn how animals have inspired many of your favorite Disney Movies. Guests will also learn about many of the animals that call Disney’s Animal Kingdom home. One of the highlights will of the new attractions will be that Guests will have the chance to create their own piece of Disney art through an instructor-led animation class. Yes, that’s right! You will be able to learn how to draw Simba, Zaxu, Pumbaa, Timon, and more. Each session will vary giving Guests the chance to complete an entire collection of personalized “Lion King” character drawings. FastPasses will be available!
Once open, the reimagined Rafiki’s Planet Watch will enhance our knowledge of Disney storytelling while learning all about Disney’s efforts to protect wildlife and habitats around the world. The immersive experiences of the Affection Section, catching a glimpse of medical procedures in the veterinary treatment window, learning how animal care experts prepare meals and care for the animals at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and now the new Animation Experience at Conservation System, will connect kids and families with magic of nature for years to come.
