VIDEO: New “It All Started With a Mouse” Show Debuts at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park

Disney’s Animal Kingdom recently started a new show at Rafiki’s Planet Watch called “It All Started with a Mouse”. “It All Started with a Mouse” showcases Walt Disney’s lifelong love of the animal world and his belief that “what everyone will learn who studies it is a renewed sense of kinship with the earth and all its inhabitants.” During the show, Conservation Station’s “animal ambassadors,” including sheep, parrots, porcupines, birds of prey and Kunekune pigs help tell stories and make appearances in, around, and even above the audience, as the cast members share natural history fun facts, conservation messages and inspiring (and fun) calls-to-action. We have a full video of the new show to share with you today:

The show is much longer than and probably more worthwhile than the heavily hyped Winged Encounters show which also debuted last week at the park. After the show, guests have an exclusive opportunity to meet and talk to some of the stars of the show and are encouraged to capture once-in-a-lifetime memories with plenty of photographs.

When you plan your visit, allow at least 15 minutes of travel time to and from Rafiki’s Planet Watch via the Wildlife Express train to get to the 20/25-minute show which is currently performed once a day, at 11:30 a.m.
