Jungle Cruise Attraction Magic Kingdom
This classic attraction is one of The Magic Kingdom’s original rides that opened in 1971. Safari boats carry guests down a river through the jungles of South America, Africa and Asia. You’ll see life-size robotic animals and elaborate landscaping as you embark on your ten-minute journey.
The highlight of any Jungle Cruise voyage is the skipper’s punny commentary on the scenes along the way.
There is no height requirement for this ride.
The Jungle Cruise continues to be popular after all these years and still commands a long line on busy days. To avoid the longest lines avoid visiting between 11:00 am and 4:00 pm. Lines usually get a lot shorter at night.
If Jungle Cruise is a high priority try getting it early in the day when the reservations are available at 7 am.
- Look around at the signs in the queue and listen carefully to the radio announcements as both contain some very funny puns.
- During the Holidays the ride becomes Jingle Cruise and has more Christmas-themed jokes and decorations.
- The names on the crates at the exit of the attraction contain references to Disney films the Misadventures of Merlin Jones and Swiss Family Robinson.
