At Disney Parks, Disney continues to look for ways to enhance classic attractions and elevate the experience for all of their Guests. Today, Disney shared that they are building on the story of the Jungle Cruise at both Disneyland park at Disneyland Resort and Magic Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World Resort to include new adventures that stay true to the experience we know and love – more humor, wildlife and skipper heart – and also reflect and value the diversity of the world around us. There are no bigger fans of this attraction than our Imagineers. Here is Kevin Lively – former Jungle Cruise skipper – to share a transmission from the world’s most remote tropical rivers! As you may recall, we announced similar diversity changes coming to Splash Mountain.
Continuing a tradition that Walt Disney started more than six decades ago when he first enhanced the Jungle Cruise, the new creative concept for Disney’s river’s journey will be original to Walt Disney Imagineering, just like the attraction itself. Here’s a first look at some of the “gnu” magic they’re adding:
Imagineers are excited to invite current Jungle Cruise skippers at Disneyland park and Magic Kingdom Park to a Jungle Navigation Company Roll Call, where they will be among the first to hear more about the new adventures and wonders coming down the river. Recently, Imagineers had the chance to provide a sneak peek to a few skippers at Magic Kingdom Park – check out the Walt Disney World Ambassador team on Instagram, @WDW.Ambassador, to see additional reactions, and stay tuned for more details about the enhancements in store for the Jungle Cruise, coming later this year.
