Doc McStuffins to Greet Fans at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Beginning This Month



Starting later this month, you will have the chance to see the beloved star from Disney Junior’s hit animated series “Doc McStuffins” when you visit Disney's Animal Kingdom® Theme Park at Walt Disney World® Resort.

In addition to her appearances at Disney’s Hollywood Studios®, the popular toy doctor will make daily visits to Disney’s Animal Kingdom to meet with Guests and sign autographs. With her handy stethoscope in hand, she’ll stop by every day just outside the veterinarian clinic at Rafiki’s Planet Watch. While there, little ones can also learn a little about conservation and how the vets care for the animals that live at the park. And while preschoolers love the train ride to Rafiki’s Planet Watch, it also gives parents a few minutes to relax before the next adventure.
