Also known as Conservation Station, Rafiki’s Planet Watch requires guests to take a 15-minute train ride to reach this attraction. Once there, visitors have a variety of ecological exhibits to see – Habitat Habit, Conservation Station, and Affection Section. Future vets will love this exhibit and small children will enjoy the petting zoo. However, for some people, it’s a long train ride for a lack-luster exhibit. Unless the subject matter really interests you, there are better ways to spend your time at Animal Kingdom.
