The holiday season has arrived at Disney Parks and as regular Disney Parks Blog readers know, the Jungle Cruise attractions at both Disneyland park and Magic Kingdom Park have transformed into the Jingle Cruise for the holidays. This week, Shannon shared a fun tour of the attraction in Disneyland park.

Tour the Jingle Cruise for yourself this holiday season at both Disneyland park and Magic Kingdom Park.

Also this week, we shared seven great tips for beginners preparing to experience this season’s Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party at Magic Kingdom Park. You can get the biggest bang for your buck by using your party ticket to enter the park as early as 4 p.m. The holiday festivities don’t start until 7 p.m., so you could use this time to get through a few more attractions.

Check Jennifer’s original post for more tips on how you can make Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party magical.

  • Oh yea the Christmas lay out at WDW is just beautiful. Disney goes al out and even though it is very crowded it is still wonderful. The lights, trees, and decorations everywhere along with the “snow fall” on main street make it a caint miss event. Oh and you cannot have a comment without adding the Hot Chocolate and cookies mmmmmmmmmmm.
    Merry Christmas to everyone this season be safe and God Bless

  • It’s wonderful to see the transformation of the parks for the holiday season. I just wanted to pass on my appreciation to all the folks at Disney for all their extraordinary efforts in making the parks so special and also to the Disney Parks Blog for bringing us all the news and events from the parks. Happy Holidays to you all from an appreciative fan in the UK.
