Fellow skippers and passengers will be able to take a trip, on the world-famous Jungle Cruise on July 16th at Disneyland! Over the past months as the attraction has been undergoing a transformation of an expanded storyline. Walt Disney Imagineering for the first time is doing a bicoastal project from both California and Florida. The original Jungle Cruise was an opening day attraction, when Disneyland first opened up back on July 1955.
Alberta Falls the new proprietor of the Jungle Navigation Company Ltd. As she is the granddaughter of Dr. Albert Falls. The attraction is located at Adventureland at both Disney Parks. Walt Disney World at Disney’s Magic Kingdom park will be reopening later this summer.
The new magic that Imagineering is implementing and will remain true towards the classic attraction. Or what Disney loves to call it by “enhancing” and elevating for their guests. New scenes and characters from all across the world, start off at a trapped safari party. Skippers will give their best and whimiscal-gag jokes. Giving that sense of humor that is known for this beloved attraction.
Some of the new scenes include for examples:
- Chimpanzees have taken over the expedition’s wrecked boat
- A safari of explorers from around the world finds itself up a tree after the journey goes awry
- A Lost & Found location now transformed into a Gift Shop run by Alberta’s longtime friend, Trader Sam
And other details that passengers can discover.
Executive Director from Walt Disney Imagineering, Kim Irivin even gave some other details about the attraction. Even so for the film adapation coming to Disney+ and Premier Access on July 28th. Laughing Place was able to share more about it.
“The Rock and Emily Blunt’s jackets from the Jungle Cruise film are in the queue. There are also a lot of new Easter Eggs referring to the Society of Explorers and Adventurers.”
“Most of the Easter Eggs having to do with the Jungle Cruise film are in the boathouse queue. We had a hard time working them into the attraction itself.”
Irvine also explained further about the rest of the Disney Parks internationally for their Jungle Cruise’s:
“There are no current plans to overhaul the Jungle Cruise at overseas parks. Just Disneyland and Walt Disney World”Kim Irvine, Executive Director at Walt Disney Imagineering
Even the minor details count that are located at the Lost and Found section. Irvine even teased of “an imporant piece” will be added later for the reopening on July 16th. Guests will have to find out by then.
The attraction has changed drastically over the years but it still gives the comedic vibes that the skippers are known for.
