Exciting news for Doc McStuffins fans. Starting later this month, guests visiting Disney’s Animal Kingdom will now have the chance to see the beloved star from Disney Junior’s hit animated series “Doc McStuffins.” 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, wee 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 us parents a few minutes to relax before the next adventure.
Disney Junior’s Peabody Award-winning animated series “Doc McStuffins” follows the story of six-year-old Doc McStuffins who aspires to be a doctor like her mom and runs a clinic for stuffed animals and broken toys. Recently renewed for a fifth season, the series showcases the hallmarks of great Disney storytelling – fantasy and wish fulfillment – and models compassion and good health for kids age 2-7. The series airs daily on Disney Channel and Disney Junior.
