There is very little we can say about Affection Section. It's basically just a petting zoo in front of Conservation Station in Rafiki's Planet Watch.

Since Rafiki's Planet Watch is a very small area, it lacks many attractions. So much so that Disney included a pathway with a couple of signs as an attraction on their official maps. In our opinion this area of the park is lacking in a lot of ways. The Affection Section petting zoo simply fills in a bit of empty space. 

Animals you can pet include Sheep, Goats, Deer and Pigs. There are sometimes a few animals in some surrounding pens that you can only view. 

Hand washing facilities are provided as you exit the petting zoo area.
