CONFIRMED: Mickey’s Jammin’ Jungle Parade to End in June

Walt Disney World’s only afternoon parade currently running is going away soon. Entertainers in Mickey’s Jammin’ Jungle Parade have been informed that the 13-year-old parade will conclude in June of 2014. Waiting until June would allow time for the new Festival of the Lion King theater to open in Africa, reinstating some of the much needed attraction capacity for the park in preparation for the Summer. We can only assume that either the parade warehouse in the way of construction staging for the AVATAR project or that the parade route will be altered to accommodate the new nighttime show on the way to the park.

The removal of the parade was confirmed by a Disney spokesperson since this story was first run.

I love that parade. Would be sad to see yet another long running parade removed. But, change is inevitable.

I know I might get attacked for this but thank God the parade is leaving. This parade has outlived its usefulness. Roads are already so narrow in certain areas that it blocks everything up when the parade comes through. I do not mind parades..in fact I enjoy them but this parade did nothing to help the park. I see why they would wait until June to shut it down. They probably need to give something to do until the new FOTLK theater opens.

I'll be so sad if this is true. I love love love this parade and think Animal Kingdom won't be the same without it. What makes it worse is that we're not visiting until September so I'll not get to see it again. Gutted

Never cared for it. Hopefully a better show/parade will replace it.

Is it gone for good or is it temporary well they do some work backstage either for Avatar land or whatever the night time thing is going to be?

No great loss… about 1/4 of the participants are guests.
