Disney Parks Blog Weekly Recap

Thomas Smith

by , Editorial Content Director, Disney Parks

Disney Parks Blog readers were among the first to learn this week that Jungle Cruise at both Disneyland park and Magic Kingdom Park will receive first-ever holiday makeovers.


Beginning in early November, Jungle Cruise at both Disneyland park and Magic Kingdom Park will temporarily transform into “Jingle Cruise” for the holiday season.

In the new storyline of the attraction, 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.

Check Jennifer’s original blog post for more details and let us know if you’ll be boarding the Jingle Cruise this holiday season.


Also this week, we gave readers a look at some of the extra magic they’ll experience when visiting Magician Mickey Mouse at Town Square Theater at Magic Kingdom Park.
