Walt Disney World to Reopen Rafiki’s Planet Watch this Summer at Disney’s Animal  Kingdom

We previously announced the closure of Rafiki’s Planet Watch at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.  There was a lot of speculation at the time as to whether or not the location would permanently close, but it was confirmed that the planned re-opening of the themed area.  We are so excited to learn that there is official confirmation from Disney Parks Blog that Rafiki’s Planet Watch will fully reopen this summer.  The area is confirmed that it will include a few new enhancements and join the celebration of all things “The Lion King.”

Rafiki’s Planet Watch will continue to include the animal encounters that are so much fun for guests, as well as new experiences to enjoy, featuring a celebration of “The Lion King.” The hope for the land is that guests will connect to the magic of nature and see the importance Disney places on animal care and conservation in our parks and around the world. Of course, we will share more updates as soon as we have them.

Who else is excited that Rafiki’s Planet Watch is set to re-open?
