Earlier this year I shared some rare pictures of Walt Disney at the Jungle Cruise at Disneyland park. There was such a great response that I set out to find and share even more photography of Walt at one of his favorite original Disneyland park attractions, the world-famous Jungle Cruise.

This rarely seen photo, digitally scanned from the original color negative, required some restoration, but once it was done, I couldn’t wait to share it.

What do you think of Walt as a Jungle Cruise skipper?


  • Very Nice… thanks for sharing 🙂

  • “Say, where’re the tracks on these things?”
    “It’s a BOAT, Walt.” 😉

  • Do you think he was telling corny jokes? 🙂

  • This is a wonderful photo,brings such warm feelings about the man behind the magic!

  • Very cool photo!

  • Greetings!

    Thank you for sharing this wonderful photo!

    Best regards,

  • Walt certainly knew how to wear a hat with style! 🙂
