Did you know the Jungle Cruise attraction in Adventureland at Magic Kingdom transforms into the Jingle Cruise during the holidays? It sure does! Not only does it behold the same cheesy commentary as the original Jungle Cruise, but there is also some holiday fun added to the scenery and jokes. The Jungle Cruise has been transforming into the Jingle Cruise at Magic Kingdom since the holiday season of 2013. Keep reading to find out why You MUST Do The Jingle Cruise During The Holidays At Magic Kingdom!#waltexpress #disneyworld #disneyworldholidays jingle cruise

You Must Do The Jingle Cruise

The Jingle Cruise is all about the homesick skippers of the Jungle Cruise. To make everything feel more like home, the skippers have decorated the queue with items that have been mailed to them. Some of the items they have even made themselves. Basically, the Jingle Cruise is just like the Jungle Cruise, just with some holiday cheer added. The scenes throughout the adventure will have some festive decorations to help the skippers celebrate the season. You will also notice while on your “trip” that the skippers have added some holiday jokes to lighten the spirit a little more.

Not only are the scenes and the queue transformed, but so are the boats! Make sure you pay close attention to the names of the individual boats because the skippers have also changed them up a bit. Those skippers know exactly how to create the perfect holiday! Just a few examples; Sankuru Sadie becomes Sleigh Ride Sadie, Congo Connie becomes Candy Cane Connie, Mongala Millie becomes Mistletoe Millie and Amazon Annie becomes Eggnog Annie, just to name a few!

Height Requirement

Same as the Jungle Cruise, there is not a height requirement for Jingle Cruise. No matter what age, or height, everyone in your party will be able to enjoy this attraction. Such a great family fun attraction that you definitely need to add to your list. Have you really done the holidays in Disney World if you haven’t done the JINGLE CRUISE at least once?
