For the first time, the Jungle Cruise at Magic Kingdom will receive a seasonal change this November when it becomes the Jingle Cruise.
According to Jennifer Fickley-Baker, social media manager on the Disney Parks Blog:
The Skippers have grown homesick for the holidays, so they’ve added holiday cheer to the Jungle Cruise queue and boathouse with decorations that have been mailed to them from home (plus a few they’ve created themselves). The Skippers have also added a slew of new jokes to their tours that are the perfect way to get guests in the holiday spirit. Additionally, Jungle Cruise boats have been renamed with the holidays in mind, and if guests listen carefully, they may hear a holiday-themed radio broadcast playing in the background.
The Jingle Cruise is scheduled to start daily cruises in early November. The attraction will not be closing down for the changeover. Jungle Cruise will also be getting a makeover at Disneyland in California.
