    Want to do Rafiki's Planet Watch in April 2017. The park closes at 7, what time does the last train depart for this attraction? Our last trip we missed visiting this and my 5 year old loves it so we don't want to miss it again. Thanks!

    Howdy Jamie!

    Hi-ya, Pal! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I hope you are having a delightfully Disney day.

    It wasn't until recently that my family and I hopped aboard the Wildlife Express Train and headed out to Rafiki's Planet Watch and oh, boy!--did my little guy love it too!  You'll want to make sure you check the scheduled times for the day, but usually, even when Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park closes later, I've found Rafiki's Planet Watch closes around 5:00 PM and the last train headed to it leaves around 4:30 PM. Again, make sure you check the scheduled hours closer to your stay, but for now I'd plan on taking the train by 4:00 PM to make sure your little one has plenty of time to explore the area.

    To get you even more excited for your April visit, here is a fun article from the Disney Parks Blog on "My Top 10 Reasons to visit Rafiki's Planet Watch..."

    Please let us know if there is anything else we are able to assist you with, Jamie, and have a wonderful vacation.

    Magical Wishes,
