Kids and grown ups alike love this extra special treat! You only get a glimpse of it on the Disney World website, so it is often overlooked if you aren’t staying at the Grand Floridian Resort. I’m here to tell you it is super cool and it smells heavenly! You can even get fun holiday treats while taking in the Christmas spirit!

The Jingle Cruise

During non-holiday time, the Jingle Cruise is also known as the Jungle Cruise. I love this! It’s the same Jungle Cruise but with a Holiday flare. We love all the silly touches to our favorite “punny” ride. I highly recommend also grabbing a bite to eat the the Jungle Navigation Skipper Canteen to keep the puns and laughter coming!
