An unexpected closing is coming to Walt Disney World next month, affecting Rafiki’s Planet Watch Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
As of Oct. 21, guests will no longer be able to access Rafiki’s Planet Watch at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. There is no word on what will become of this area, or if there will be similar conservation experiences and animal encounters in the future at the park.
Guests who visited Rafiki’s Planet Watch were able to get an in-depth look at animal habitats from around the world, and get an inside look at the care that animals receive at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
This was also the main location for guests to meet Rafiki from “The Lion King.” There is no news on whether this meet-and-greet will be relocated, or to where.
