Rafiki’s Planet Watch Set to Close in October

By: Amy Kawa

Disney has announced yet another major closer in one of its theme parks.  Cast members have been informed that Rafiki’s Planet Watch is set to close October 21, 2018.  All of the meet and greets, exhibits, and the Wildlife Train taken to get to the Planet Watch are all included in this closure.  The veterinary facilities will remain in service and the animals that call the Planet Watch home will not be leaving Disney World just yet.

Does this mean the Zootopia overlay that has been rumored to come to this area of the park is on the way?  Is this just another result of budget cuts?  Only time will tell.
