Boat ride

Opening Date:
Apr 15, 1983

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.

In 2014, the Jungle Cruise underwent a major refurbishment at Tokyo Disneyland. The new version features an increased use of music, interactivity and a new nighttime experience.

Over the course of 60 years, the jokes haven’t gotten any better, but Jungle Cruise maintained lasting appeal among Disney fans.

The Only "Must Do" Jungle Cruise

Jungle Cruise in America is a filler attraction for my days. It has a nice cheesy enjoyment to it, but it looks and feels quite old and outdated. Certainly not Tokyo's! This one had great animatronics and effects alongside our amazing skipper's jokes. Even though I don't know Japanese, I was just enjoying myself so much from both her enthusiasm, the guest's laughing, and the amazing maintenance throughout the ride. This is by far the best Jungle Cruise I've ever taken, and it's the only Jungle Cruise I would call great.

A Different Kind of Cruise

Most of the time when one rides Jungle Cruise, the forced nature of the skipper's humor is where passengers find the humor. In Japan however, the passengers seemed to genuinely find the skipper's spiel highly entertaining and worthy of audible laughter. Although I may not have known what the skipper was saying, the laugher of those around me was pretty irresistible and I was cackling like a hyena before I knew it. What a surreal experience!
