Last week I posted the above picture with guesses as to where the props are located. As always, there were some great guesses, but one person was able to correctly identify where the props are located.
Congratulations to Jeff, who knew that the props can be found on top of The Wildlife Express at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. The train takes guests to and from Rafiki’s Planet Watch. This 7- minute train ride will give you a behind-the-scenes look at where the animals stay when they are not roaming their areas in the park. It’s a fun way to see backstage and sometimes you get to see some of the animals during the train ride.
When the train pulls up to Rafiki’s Planet Watch guests can visit a few different areas. These areas are worth exploring, especially since Rafiki’s Planet Watch tends to be less crowded, so it’s nice break from the busier part of the park.
This is a petting zoo where guests can get up close with domesticated goats, sheep, donkeys, cows, and pigs. Animal care experts are on hand to interact with guests and answer questions.
This area gives guests an in-depth look at animal habitats from around the world and the vet care that animals in the park receive. Guests can also see the Nutrition Center and learn what meals are prepped for the animals; they can check out the amphibian, reptile, and invertebrate windows to see things like tarantulas, scorpions, millipedes, and snakes; and the Science Center gives guests a glimpse into what the scientists are working on.
Ever wanted to learn how to draw a Disney character? Animation Experience is where guests can learn how to draw different animal Disney characters. It’s a fun experience that guides guests in a step-by-step process of how to draw and it’s taught by an actual Disney animator!
I tried this experience and learned to draw young Simba. It was a really fun experience and I was honestly impressed that my picture really looked like Simba. If you’re planning to visit Rafiki’s Planet Watch I definitely recommend this experience.
This wildlife path leads from the train station to Affection Section and Conservation Station.
Thanks to everyone who played along this week and congratulations to Jeff who knew where the props are located! Another Where is it Wednesday picture will be up soon!
Have you been to Rafiki’s Planet Watch?
