PHOTOS, VIDEO: The Jingle Cruise Adds New Props & Jokes for 2014 Holiday Season at the Magic Kingdom

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Last year, the inaugural season of the Jingle Cruise at the Magic Kingdom delighted guests, but the Jungle itself was a little sparce when it came to the holiday feel that was added to the boathouse queue of the attraction. This year, a few scenes in the ride added some yuletide cheer with the new backstory that several shipments of holiday decorations and such that were to be received at the Jungle Navigation Company never quite made it. The animals who inhabit the waterways of the world seem to have found them…


There’s much more new to see for 2014, so sail with us as we go “Jungle All The Way” aboard the Jingle Cruise at the Magic Kingdom:

We sure hope Trader Sam-ta pays us a visit this year!

I went on the Jingle Cruise twice during a MVMCP and one skipper was bad while the second one was great. I loved it and it was a lot of fun to go through. I really like it when it is light out. When it’s dark out, you miss things sometimes or you feel you need to whip your head around because you missed it.


It’s weird to see the differences in the rides between Disneyland and Disney World. Of course we don’t see much of Disneyland here anymore
