A new show is coming to Rafiki's Planet Watch at Disney's Animal Kingdom - "It All Started With a Mouse." By the end of the show, guests will have a new sense of how much Walt Disney loved animals and the message of conservation. Walt believed that "what everyone will learn who studies it is a renewed sense of kinship with the earth and all of its inhabitants." Animal ambassadors (animals from around the park) will be on stage with cast members and they will all work together to share conservation tips, animal facts and more. Guests will be able to take photos and "meet" the animals after the show. Some of the animals that may be in the show include porcupines, Kunekune pigs, birds of prey, parrots and more. The 20-minute show will take place at 11:30am daily. Rafiki's Planet Watch is accessible via the Wildlife Express Train, so allow 15 minutes of travel time to arrive.
