PHOTOS, VIDEO: New Trader Sam’s Gift Shop Scene Unveiled Aboard Jungle Cruise in Magic Kingdom

Trader Sam’s Gift Shop, replacing Trader Sam himself, has been uncovered at the Jungle Cruise in Magic Kingdom.


We first learned about the new scene in April. It’s one of many cultural sensitivity changes to the attraction.


In the story, Trader Sam has turned the lost and found of Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd. into his own gift shop, featuring an accrument of lost items from cruises.


The building itself arrived in May but was not uncovered until now. Some of the surrounding area is still covered so more elements will be revealed later on.

The scene is still missing some mischievous monkeys and an elephant, as well as a few extra props, though some may have changed between concept and execution. We also still expect there to be a ride photo added, as suggested by the “cruise photo” sign and monkey sitting atop a camera in the concept art.

  2. It just seems like an empty scene. Abandoned gift shop in the jungle. At least put an animatronic animal in it
