Animation Experience at Conservation Station

Rafiki's Planet Watch at Disney's Animal Kingdom reopens today with an all new Animation Experience at Conservation Station.

The Animation Experience at Conservation Station, offers guests the opportunity to learn how live animals have inspired some of the most iconic characters.

Inside you have the chance to create a personalized piece of Disney art through an instructor-led animation class.

Each session will be different, and will include characters such as Simba, Zazu, Pumbaa and Timon. Disney FastPass+ Service is offered, and standby is also available.

Rafiki’s Planet Watch, the Affection Section and the Wildlife Express all return to operation, along with other small enhancements in celebration of The Lion King. A new automated spiel can be heard on the Wildlife Express explaining Walt Disney's connection with nature, and Lion King music plays throughout the area.

The main entrance to Conservation Station now only allows access to restrooms.

The entrance to the Animation Experience is at the side of the building across from the Affection Section.
