This summer will bring the reopening of a classic Animal Kingdom experience with an all-new offering! Rafiki’s Planet Watch — which includes Conservation Station, the Affection Section, and the Wildlife Express — will reopen on July 11, 2019.
And an all-new experience will make its debut as part of the park’s celebration of Disney’s “The Lion King!” The Animation Experience at Conservation Station will offer guests the chance to learn how live animals inspired some of the most iconic characters from the film.
