Animal Hospital and Veterinary Treatment Room in Rafiki’s Planet Watch Closed for Refurbishment until Mid-June

The Animal Hospital and Veterinary Treatment Room at Rafiki’s Planet Watch, which is typically able to be viewed by guests through an expansive glass window, has closed for refurbishment and is set to reopen in mid-June. Several enhancements are going to take place during the refurbishment, and after reopening, guests will have the ability to view procedures where the hospital staff will be using two new CT (computed tomography) scanners for animal diagnostics. Disney’s Animal Kingdom is one of two animal hospitals in U.S. zoos with CT scanners on their premises.

While the hospital is closed, the animals will continue to receive any needed care in the backstage treatment areas, such as the quarantine building. There will be no on-stage veterinary procedures during this time; however, the new Doc McStuffins Meet-and-Greet located just outside the veterinary clinic will remain open.
