Vet Hospital Animal Kingdom

Rafiki’s Planet Watch’s Animal Hospital and Veterinary Treatment Room at Disney’s Animal Kingdom is closed for refurbishment and is expected to reopen around mid-June. Disney is enhancing the experience for this area by creating the ability for guests to view procedures in which hospital staff uses two new computed tomography (CT) scanners for animal diagnostics. Disney’s Animal Kingdom is one of only two animal hospitals in U.S. zoos with CT scanners on the premises.

During the hospital refurbishment, the animals will continue to receive needed care at the park’s backstage treatment areas, such as the quarantine building. There will be no on-stage veterinary procedures during this time.

Due to this refurbishment, the portion of the Backstage Tales tour that typically takes place in the animal hospital will be accommodated in another space. All other experiences in Conservation Station will continue as normal.
