Affection Section in the Rafiki’s Planet Watch area of Disney’s Animal Kingdom is a family-accessible petting zoo that allows guests “enjoy friendly, hands-on encounters with a variety of animals, including goats and sheep.” And in a new video released today by Disney, the animal residents of Affection Section have been spotted playing with a very familiar-looking toy.

The famous Pixar ball first appeared in the animated short “Luxo, Jr.” and has since become an instantly-recognizable icon for Pixar Animation Studios, also known as Disney/Pixar. In the video below, the goats, pigs, sheep, and chickens of Rafiki’s Planet Watch have a ball horsing around with the bouncy yellow, blue, and red sphere as Walt Disney World prepares to open Toy Story Land next month.


Toy Story Land opens Saturday, June 30 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
