Jungle Cruise Getting Holiday Makeover as the Jingle Cruise

For the first time ever, The Jungle Cruise is getting a holiday transformation into the Jingle Cruise just in time for the holidays.

Disney says the transformation is happening because the Jungle Cruise skippers are homesick for the holidays and they decided it was time to add holiday cheer to the queue and boathouse using decorations mailed from home. The Skippers are also getting crafty and have created some homemade decorations.

The Skippers have renamed the boats with holiday-themed names. And the holiday-themed Jingle Cruise will feature new jokes to get guests into the holiday spirit. Guests riding the Jingle Cruise during the holidays might even hear a special holiday radio broadcast during their cruise.

Walt Disney Imagineering will be transforming the Jungle Cruise at Disneyland and the Magic Kingdom into the Jingle Cruise and guests will be able to enjoy the Jingle Cruise beginning in early November.

Sounds like a fun addition to the Jungle Cruise. We were just on the cruise last week, and wish we could be on it for the special edition!

The jingle cruise was a huge let down. Ever since y'all post this. This is all my family has talk about. Even to the point we talk our pawpaw to ride all the way to Disney world. This was one of his favorites. We was so excited we got to the line the front entrance is decorated and everything and we finally got on the boat. We did not see one Christmas light not one Christmas song! It was very disappointing. Good thing we made it to the Christmas parade.
