    What To Expect From the Jungle Cruise Experience?

    Disney World is one of the most versatile places there could be on Earth. One minute you can be feeling like a princess at Cinderella Castle, and a few minutes later you are in your Safari gear in the middle of the Jungle thanks to the Jungle Cruise experience. Oh, this all happens in the same park, by the way. We are talking about Magic Kingdom

    The adventure awaits you

    When planning a visit to Disney World Parks, it's important to keep in mind what activities you are more likely to enjoy. Not everyone enjoys a thrilling ride like Tron Lightcycle Run, while there are many guests that will just ride roller coaster over and over again.

    Thankfully, Disney World offers attractions for everyone, and one of our favorite ones especially during these hot days when one needs a refreshing yet entertaining ride is located in Magic Kingdom.

    Jungle Cruise or Jingle Cruise?

    Some may know this adventurous ride by its festive name, Jingle Cruise, which changes every time the Christmas Season arrives at Disney World, and transforms into a more festive and cherished aesthetic. The experience remains magical during the entire year.

    If you haven’t experienced it yet, let us give you a brief recap of what you can expect in this exciting attraction, and if you have already visited it, let us know what is your favorite part and what can be done better.

    Let’s get explore this jungle

    From the moment you board your boat, you can start feeling like a true explorer surrounded by incredible decor items that immerse guests in a unique experience. 

    Visitors start by getting in assigned boats with creative names for each one that is guided by designated staff. They are the skippers who make the experience much funnier and exciting with their recurrent jokes and energetic attitude through the river ride.

    The boat takes you through three different continents through the same river, what a way to travel! Asia, Africa, and South American wildlife can be seen in just 10 minutes of this unique vessel trip, but it feels so much longer with the many new things one gets to experience. 

    ...like meeting the magnificent elephants that are waiting for passengers to discover them! Just remember that all the animals here are animatronics, from those elephants all the way to cobras and giant spiders. I mean, thank God the spiders aren't real, or this would be more scary than the Tower of Terror.

    Should I go there?

    This is certainly an attraction worth visiting at least once. We always encourage Disney fans to visit at least twice a year, once when it's the not-so-regular Jungle Cruise and the other one when Santa Claus has left its Christmas gifts to the animals of the Jungle and it has transformed the place into a festive vibe.

    We love it in both versions. I mean, the experience is still fun and exciting for all guests. Maybe the hippos are in a better mood during Christmas, it's hard to tell.
