Rafiki's Planet Watch, the only land named after a Disney character that isn't Mickey or Minnie, opened with Disney's Animal Kingdom on April 22, 1998.

This portion of the park gives guests the chance to interact with animals and nature on a more personal level. Here guests are given the chance to learn more about how they can make a difference when they return back home. While the rest of the park is an educational experience, this is the only section that doesn't try to hide the fact that you are actually learning something.

The main attractions here aren't rides or shows, but experiences. Guests have the chance to observe actual scientists working with animals while answering the guests questions, they can pet different animals at the Affection Section, and they can play different games at the Conservation Station.

While not the most popular section of Disney's Animal Kingdom, Rafiki's Planet Watch is worth the train ride over. There are several fun activities that you can do here that can keep you busy from five minutes to five hours, so go check it out!


Fun Facts: If you've ever been to Tomorrowland, you may have met PUSH, the talking trash can. While here in Rafiki's Planet Watch you can sometimes meet his distant cousin Pipa, the talking recycling trash can!


Touring Tips: Rafiki's Planet Watch is home to some of the most unique character meet and greets in all of Walt Disney World. At times you can meet Pocahontas, Meeko, and even Jiminy Cricket!
