While experiencing Jungle Cruise® Attraction in Adventureland® Area, you'll set sail on a 1930s tramp-steamer tour in the untamed waters of the Mekong, the Amazon and the rivers of Africa. Cruising past Audio-Animatronics animals including the Bengal tiger, king cobras, elephants, lions and hyenas, you'll never know quite what you'll encounter next! Your skipper on Jungle Cruise® Attraction will lead you deeper and deeper into the unknowns of the jungle, where explorers alike have gone missing. Your skipper tries to distract you with humorous tales, while you quietly reassure yourself there is nothing to worry about!
Try to experience Jungle Cruise® Attraction before lunch or later in the evening, depending how many days you plan on touring Magic Kingdom® Park. Make sure to look at our 1-Day and 2-Day Touring Plans for suggestions. 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® Attraction 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!

The first version of Jungle Cruise® Attraction 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® Attraction 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 The Great Movie Ride® Attraction at Disney's Hollywood Studios® theme park.
