Have you taken a trip aboard the Jingle Cruise at Magic Kingdom Park yet? The Jungle Cruise attraction is currently enjoying its first ever holiday transformation, in which the skippers spread holiday cheer throughout the cruise with handmade decorations and holiday jokes – even the boats received new holiday names.

Disney photographer Kent Phillips recently stopped by the temporarily transformed attraction for a look at the fun. Check out his gallery of images below.


For more on Jingle Cruise, be sure to check out this video which Shannon Swanson posted earlier, in which former Jungle Cruise skipper Kevin Lively (a consultant on the project) and Imagineer and former Jungle Cruise skipper Wyatt Winter share what they loved about transforming the attraction for the holidays.

  • The Jingle Cruise at Disneyland was recently updated to add Santa hats and presents to the gorilla scene. Do you know if the Disney World version will be getting this enhancement?

  • My family LOVED the Jingle Cruise! And we were lucky enough to get one of the cool, retro ride posters, which we’ve framed & proudly added to our holiday decorations this year!

  • I just rode the Jingle Cruise in Magic Kingdom two days ago and loved it. The jokes are wonderfully groan-worthy. I’m glad that they didn’t decorate the animals with tinsel and Santa hats. That would have been just tacky. Congratulations skippers and Imagineers. You did a great job.

  • My my, Chief Namee sure looks snazzy with that festive wreath around his neck! Has it helped improve his business? Still two of his heads for one of yours right?
