Rafiki's Planet Watch and New Animation Experience

In honour of Disney's celebration of "The Lion King," Disney will be launching The Animation Experience at Conservation Station, offering guests the opportunity to learn how live animals have inspired some of the most iconic characters from this beloved "tail." You'll learn more about some of the animals who call Disney's Animal Kingdom park home and then have the chance to create a personalised piece of Disney art through an instructor-led animation class.

As you'd expect, some of your favourite characters from "The Lion King" will be the stars of The Animation Experience, which will start when Rafiki's Planet Watch reopens on July 11.

Learn how to draw Simba, Zazu, Pumbaa, Timon and more. Each session will be different so be sure to visit often to complete the collection. Disney FastPass+ Service will be offered for the experience, and you can make those selections starting later today.

from Disney parks Blog...
"For more than 60 years, animals have been a part of Disney storytelling, and these stories continue today alongside efforts to protect wildlife and habitats around the world, as well as provide immersive experiences that connect kids and families with the magic of nature. We look forward to offering guests this new way of connecting with the animals in our park in addition to the other unique opportunities that Rafikis Planet Watch offers. We are excited to welcome guests back to greet and hug the animals at Affection Section, catch a glimpse of medical procedures at our veterinary treatment window, learn how our animal care experts prepare meals for and care for the parks animal residents and more."

This sounds great! Do you happen to know whether the animation experience is a temporary attraction for the re-opening or is it intended as a permanent experience at Animal Kingdom? My daughter would absolutely love this

Just booked a FP for this. Not sure if it'll end up being a waste of a FP but thought I'd go for it to check it out 😊
