About Jungle Cruise® Attraction

Set sail on a 1930s tramp-steamer tour in the untamed waters of the Mekong, the Amazon and the rivers of Africa. Mother Nature is at her wildest as you pass Audio-Animatronics animals including the Bengal tiger, king cobras, elephants, lions and hyenas in their native habitats. Whether they’re feasting on their prey, scaring trespassing humans or splashing water, the animals will keep you on your toes. As your skipper leads you ever deeper into the jungles past hare-brained explorers and ancient ruins, be prepared for some surprises along the way. Are there really headhunters and hippopotamus lying in wait? Your skipper’s sure to regale you with humorous tales of danger. Even while in line for your expedition, you’ll see detailed Colonia artifacts and silly communications that make this tongue-in-cheek cruise a jungle-grade scream.

Try to go before lunch or later in the evening. Going at night is a completely different (and great) experience, but it might startle young children. Either side of the boat is good, but it seems like more of the action is on the right side. Jungle Cruise is like a Disney cartoon; it applies to kids and adults alike. Tad and Lily get a kick out of the scenery, especially the headhunters for some reason. Leap and Mommy Frog crack up over the boat captain's hilariously dry jokes. It’s a Frog Family favorite!

Jungle Cruise is an outdoor safari-themed boat-ride attraction in Adventureland at Magic Kingdom. The duration of the attraction is about 9 minutes. The boats are free-seating and have no restraints. Guests do not have to transfer out of wheelchairs or ECVs to load onto the boat. Children under the age of 7 must be accompanied by a person age 14 years or older.

The first version of the Jungle Cruise was very serious, based on Walt Disney's True Life Adventure Series. It wasn't until a few years later that the humorous vignettes were added Walt Disney originally intended the Jungle Cruise to be roaming with live animals.

It wasn't until he realized that he couldn't control the animals' sleeping habits that he realized he could tell a better story using Audio-Animatronics®. This attraction is more appropriate for youngsters during daylight hours. Don't worry. The hippos aren't dangerous unless they wiggle their ears!

The plane in the jungle is actually only half a plane. The other half is in the Casablanca scene in the Great Movie Ride at Disney's Hollywood Studios theme park.
