Schematics for the Jungle Cruise boats are on display.
A box from Hightower Industries can be seen in the queue — a reference to a member of the Society of Explorers and Adventurers (S.E.A.). Harrison Hightower III is from the Tower of Terror at Tokyo DisneySea.
A barrel of gourmet pickles seems to be serving as a seat for an ongoing chess game.
Another S.E.A. reference here alludes to Mystic Point at Hong Kong Disneyland, home to Mystic Manor and S.E.A. member Lord Henry Mystic (and his adorable monkey companion, Albert).
These books are being shipped from Mystic Point to Dr. Kon Chunosuke, another of the new characters. He is an entomologist who journeyed with Alberta Falls to pursue the legendary Myrmecoleon, a fictional insect referred to as “the lion of ants.”
It seems the Jungle Cruise Skippers are sending some packages of their own to Mystic Point, including this crate of beekeeping supplies.
This crate is coming all the way from Lost Delta India, courtesy of Professor Henry Jones (but you might know him as Indiana).
Here, a duffle bag belonging to another new character, Siobhan “Puffin” Murphy, is seen. She’s brought along some premium birdseed to help her in her search for exotic birds.
“Canoe” spot anything that might help us on our boat ride?
A schedule board can be seen tracking the arrivals and departures of the various Jungle Cruise boats. Some jokes here really nail the dry humor of the attraction, such as the arrival/departure schedule of “Today/Some Other Day” for the Orinoco Adventuress, or the “Boat on time, Skipper late” status for the Suwannee Lady.
There’s a lot to look at in this room, including a gift from Alberta to Rosa.
Some insect specimens are on display from the collection of Dr. Kon Chunosuke.
We’ve already spotted our first danger sign.
A bronze statue of a cobra looms above, treasure resting in its slippery grasp.
A statue has been removed and two more crocodiles have been added to the Cambodian scene.
Watch out, Ginger snaps!
The statue resembling the Indian deity Ganesha has been replaced by this bowing elephant.
An abandoned petrol drum is our next sign of danger.
Don’t worry; they’re just monkeying around.
Here we can see all the new characters trapped up the pole. From top to bottom, you can find Siobhan “Puffin” Murphy, Dr. Kon Chunosuke, Rosa Soto Dominguez, Dr. Leonard Moss, and Skipper Felix Pechman XIII.
If Skipper Felix didn’t know his cruise wasn’t going well, I think he gets the “point” now.
