An unofficial Walt Disney World news and trip planning guide!
A new show has been added to Animal Kingdom's Rafiki's Planet Watch, showcasing a selection of animals with a cast member sharing fun facts about them.
The show, located at the Conservation Station is 20 minutes long and is performed daily at 11:30am (note that to get to this area you must take the Wildlife Express train, so allow at least 25 minutes, as the travel time is 15 minutes).
Here's the full details from the Official Disney Parks Blog:
With so much to see and do at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, planning ahead is the key to an action-packed, fun-filled day! One of the newest animal experience destinations, “It All Started with a Mouse,” is located at Rafiki’s Planet Watch and makes a great addition to the itineraries of animal lovers of all ages.
“It All Started with a Mouse” showcases Walt Disney’s lifelong love of the animal world and his belief that “what everyone will learn who studies it is a renewed sense of kinship with the earth and all its inhabitants.”
During the show, Conservation Station’s “animal ambassadors,” including sheep, parrots, porcupines, birds of prey and Kunekune pigs help tell stories and make appearances in, around, and even above the audience, as the cast members share natural history fun facts, conservation messages and inspiring (and fun) calls-to-action.
After the show, guests have an exclusive opportunity to meet and talk to some of the stars of the show and are encouraged to capture once-in-a-lifetime memories with plenty of photographs.
When you plan your visit, allow at least 15 minutes of travel time to and from Rafiki’s Planet Watch via the Wildlife Express train and enjoy the 20-minute show which is currently performed once a day, at 11:30 a.m.
During your visit to see the new show, don’t miss the chance to explore Conservation Station, the center of The Walt Disney Company’s global commitments to the environment and to animal conservation all around the world. It’s a great place to learn, laugh and leave believing as Walt Disney did that, “the wonders of nature are endless”!
