Jungle Cruise

The Jungle Cruise is a boat ride attraction located in Adventureland at the Magic Kingdom theme park in Walt Disney World. Guests load onto a boat where they are introduced to their skipper and then proceed into the jungle.

While cruising along in the boat, the skipper will speak about the things seen as well as make short jokes about them. Guests will notice lions, zebras, snakes just hanging around, elephants (some which intend to squirt the guests in the boat), a rhinoceros which chased a safari party up a tree, hippos that try to attack the boat, and many other animals and insects. Also in the Jungle Cruise you will encounter natives and near the end meet a shrunken head dealer.

In short, the Jungle Cruise is a spectacular attraction that deserves 4 1/2 to 5 stars. Wait times can be extremely long. In the summertime, it can be around 60 to 75 minutes long although we got right on in early June but that was in the morning when it wasn't so busy. My recommendation is to get a fastpass for this one. Jump ahead to the Pirates of the Caribbean, the Enchanted Tiki Room and then return back to the Jungle Cruise. Also, since this is an outdoor attraction and you are visiting in the hot summer months, I would suggest you ride this early or late in the evening or purchase one of those water fans to keep cool.

Check out this video of the Jungle Cruise below. It begins with many of the props in the queue area before you load onto the boat.
