Walt Disney World to Open Jingle Cruise for the Holiday Season

We are so excited to announce that the Jungle Cruise will make a holiday conversion to the Jingle Cruise this November!  The holiday season is a big deal at Walt Disney World and we get excited for the opening of the Jingle Cruise every year.  The Jingle Cruise is a holiday overlay that is placed over the current Jungle Cruise attraction, located in the Adventureland area of Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World.  This means that there are holiday decorations added throughout the attraction.  The Skippers also tell different jokes and speeches to perfectly fit the holiday overlay and make for a completely different experience than the original Jungle Cruise attraction.

The overlay for the attraction first debuted in 2013 and has been a major hit for each holiday season ever since. It is one of the holiday experiences that guests look forward to every year.  We love how Disney can convert the experience from one attraction into something completely different.

The Jingle Cruise is expected to officially open on November 2nd, just in time for the holiday season. Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is starting on November 9th, so the attraction will be in operation for the first party. It is just one of the many holiday happenings planned for the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World.

Who else can’t wait to ride the Jingle Cruise this season?

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
