Rafiki’s Planet Watch at Disney’s Animal Kingdom now features Willie the Aardvark

in Disney, Disney's Animal Kingdom, Walt Disney World

Rafiki’s Planet Watch at Disney’s Animal Kingdom has welcomed a new resident! Willie is an aardvark that frequents the outdoor stage next to the Affection Section.

Julie, one of the animal keepers that has been working with Willie shared a story with Disney Parks Blog about what the other animals thought when Willie arrived. 

“They were all very interested and lined up at the fence to check him out. It was just as enriching for us [cast members] as it was for all of them.”
