It is an interesting place. You learn a lot about animals and there is a nice exhibition. A must for every Animal Kingdom visitor.

We met Rafiki after the train ride at Animal Kingdom. He was in a location near Doc McStuffins. He stayed in character and did a little dance once we asked him to sign our Rafiki page in our keepsake book.

We went to Rafikis Planet Watch and sometimes this character is available to photo. The actual exhibit is interesting to stroll round, and is a welcome break from the crowds.
