Jungle Cruise to be Transformed into the Jingle Cruise for the Holidays

The Magic Kingdom's Jungle Cruise is once again getting a holiday makeover.

Last year marked the first time the popular attraction went through a holiday transformation. This year, starting in November, the Jungle Cruise will become the "Jingle Cruise" for the winter holiday season.

The Jungle Cruise boats will be renamed with holiday-themed names, the queue and the boathouse will be transformed with holiday decorations, and the Skipper's jokes will take on a holiday theme as well.

When the Jungle Cruise was transformed last year it was because (as Disney told the story) the Skippers were homesick for the holidays and crafted some "homemade" decorations.

The Jingle Cruise sets sail November 7 at the Magic Kingdom and continues throughout the winter holiday season.

I get excited for any Christmas addition at Disney World and this one sounds perfect! I will be using Fastpass+ so we can be sure not to miss it due to long lines. And I LOVE when they do Christmas stuff starting in early November. We often go that time of year.
