Opening Date

Guests travel the rivers of the world as they embark on a Jungle Cruise past animatronic animals, lost explorers, and through a collapsing ancient temple. The hilariously live-narrated tour is a Disney classic. Jungle Cruise underwent a major refit in Summer 2021. During May several scenes from the Jungle Cruise were removed while Disney was preparing for the reimagining of this attraction. The ride now has a new story and creative concept which allows guests to follow a Jungle Cruise skipper and their passengers as a journey goes awry. Guests float by a skipper who’s been chased up the pole by the rhino along with the other explorers as well as an all-new scene where a sunken boat splits apart and chimps board the wreckage, with monkey business ensuing. There is another sunken Jungle Cruise boat in the Hippo pool, and a "Trader Sam's" gift shop set near the end of the ride.
