Rafiki’s Planet Watch – Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Disney will be closing the entire land of Rafiki’s Planet Watch with the last day of operation on October 21, 2018.

Along with the closure of all exhibits, animal encounter experiences and character meet and greets, the Wildlife Express train ride will also be closing. The final day for character meet and greets will be September 29, 2018. The area also includes a variety of animal care support facilities as well as Animal Kingdom’s animal hospital. Those facilities will continue to be used for the foreseeable future.

There is no word on whether the reasons for the closure are budgetary, a reflection of declining guest usage or possibly an indicator that the area will be used for future expansion in the park.

If you would like to experience Rafiki’s Planet Watch before it’s closing, book now with CaribbeanDays, an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner, and we will take you there!
