Admiring all these animals is enough to make you want to find one you can actually cuddle. From near the Safaris, take the open-air Wildlife Express Train. The trip takes 7 minutes and you’ll get glimpses of plain backstage work areas. When you arrive, you’ll find The Affection Section, a petting zoo hosting your typical petting-zoo denizens—domesticated farm animals, mostly—some nods to the nature movies Disney has made over the years, and characters from The Lion King granting mellower photo ops than you find back in the main park. This area is pleasantly calm, but not a necessity. Tip: It tends to close by late afternoon.
