    I was told that it is possible to view a "vet procedure" such as dental cleaning at Animal Kingdom in the morning. Is this true?

    Hi Milica,

    You can watch several different procedures (you are right that all are performed early in the morning) depending on what is required for the vets to do on that specific day (any emergencies they may have to accommodate at the last minute) and also anything that can be done on the size of table in the operating room that they have available for guest viewing.  Some procedures can be hard for many to watch so the squeamish should definitely be aware that some of the procedures may involve more than just cleaning teeth. 

    This all takes place at Rafiki's Planet Watch, to get there you will need to board the Wildlife Express Train in Africa which will take you directly there (very nice train ride lasting approximately 7 minutes through a wooded area where you will also drive by some "behind-the-scenes" areas where certain larger animals are housed such as the elephants).

    The "hands-on" displays and experiences here are amazing and I love the "Affection Section" which is the petting zoo there.  I can spend almost a full day at Rafiki's Planet watch and always walk away with a wealth of knowledge about so many interesting animals each and every time I visit.  I hope you have an incredible time there......definitely worth a visit!

    Best wishes,
