Located in Adventureland in the Magic Kingdom, the popular Jungle Cruise Disney attraction is a favorite among guests. Before the witty cruise guides welcome you aboard the boat, the Jungle Cruise queue is filled with entertaining artifacts from voyages of the past. The fun stories about the animals and other scenes, make this ride a beloved classic at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida.
Just a hop, skip, and a jump from the Enchanted Tiki Room, the Jungle Cruise attraction is home to the famous “back side of water” and other pun-ny jokes that will make you laugh (and maybe groan) as you explore the Amazon river.

During the holiday season the ride, boats, and even the skippers get a festive Christmas makeover as the attraction transforms into The Jingle Cruise. This special holiday version of the Jungle Cruise is only around for a limited time. If you’re planning a visit to the theme park during the months of November or December, make sure you add it to your park plans.
While you can’t spend every waking minute in the park (whomp, whomp), there are several great ways to get your Jungle Cruise fix.

Heading up the cast, Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt bring the Jungle Cruise magic to the big screen in what looks to be an exciting live-action film. Fans have been curious when will the Jungle Cruise movie release and the short answer is July 30th. 2021.
The movie was originally set to debut in October 2019 but was rescheduled for July 2020 but with Covid-19 and theaters closing, it was pushed back even further. Until they release the Jungle Cruise full movie, enjoy a sneak peek. It looks like a wild adventure!
