It’s the news we’ve all been waiting to hear Insiders! Jungle Cruise, one of Disneyland’s most popular attractions is finally reopening on July 16 with an updated experience that welcomes new characters from around the world plus even more of the humor and wildlife!
The Jungle Cruise attraction over a Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World is currently open while updates are being made, and all changes will be completed this summer!
Both parks are experiencing so much progress on this attraction as Imagineers build on the original story with new adventures that stay true to the experience we all know and love. Disney is now revealing a behind-the-scenes look at the work on Trader Sam’s newest venture, which recently dropped in at Disneyland. Let’s take a look!
Here’s a description of all the changes being made on the Disney Parks Blog website:
True to his reputation as the best merchant in the jungle, Trader Sam has found a way to convert the new Lost & Found location into something more profitable for the Jungle Navigation Company Ltd. The Jungle Cruise appears to be going the route of all the best rides – ending with a gift shop! Take a look at these images!:
The world-famous skippers will continue their unique and humorous presentations in the journey along the river with interactions that Guests expect. In the below video, Disney Imagineer Kevin Lively takes us on recent trip down the river at Magic Kingdom to share a reminder of some classic Jungle Cruise moments:
The Jungle Cruise enhancements include several new scenes along the river, all interconnected. We re told to expect unexpected scenarios along the way that will give the jungle and the animals the last laugh!
I don’t know about you Insiders, but I’m ready for some good jokes after how the past year has gone! We could really use some of that corny, laugh till you cry humour. And also, I’m super excited to see the backside of water again! See what I did there? We are ready for Jungle Cruise to reopen at Disneyland July 16!
