    What day is the vet station not open in animal kingdom at the conservation station? planning another trip and we missed it last time- want to make sure I plan my AK day on a day its open (I know its only in the mornings)

    Hello Devin!

    Oh, how I just love a visit to Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. While it's always been a favorite of mine, my kids now absolutely adore it as well, so it's always top on our list to visit. There are so many incredible attractions and experiences. From thrills to chills, you'll find it all!

    Since he was 3-years-old, my son has proclaimed he wanted to be a veterinarian when he grows up. After watching Magic of Disney's Animal Kingdom on Disney+, he's now set on being a Disney vet at none other than Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. I love how Disney helps inspire his dream with opportunities like the Veterinary Treatment Room at Conservation Station. I called to verify and they said procedures can take place every day, usually in the morning. There is no set schedule, as the procedures depend on the park's veterinarian needs at the current time. While there, you can also check out the Nutrition Center where experts prepare meals for the animals. I suggest upon arriving at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, you visit Guest Relations and ask if there are any procedures scheduled for the day.

    If behind-the-scenes animal experiences spark your interest, I am happy to suggest a couple of other options you may enjoy. Also at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, you'll find Enchanting Extras such as Up Close with Rhinos, Caring for Giants and the Wild Africa Trek. Each of these experiences offer a special setting to view, learn about and encounter these special animals firsthand. 

    Another recommendation is to keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for the latest in animal news and updates. I love reading about special treats for the animals or when a new baby has been added.

    Have a super special visit to Walt Disney World Resort, Devin! I am so happy you visited planDisney so I could share my love of Disney animal experiences. If you have any other planning questions, we would love to hear from you again.

    Magical Wishes,
