Entrance Sign - Rafiki's Planet Watch

Doc McStuffins Joins the Lineup at Animal Kingdom

Many parents worry about what their kids are watching on TV or tablets, and now news has come out that even some cartoons are troubling to developing personalities. However, Disney continues to excel in the quality of their storytelling.

In fact, Doc McStuffins, a very popular show for kids aged 2 to 7 years old, has been nominated for four different awards and won three of the four since it first premiered on March 23, 2012.

Six-year-old Doc McStuffins wants to follow in her mother’s footsteps, so she sets up a clinic for her stuffed animals and broken toys. In doing so, she models compassion and good health for impressionable youngsters.
