Disney will be making some MAJOR changes to the Jungle Cruise at both Disney World & Disneyland in 2021!
Today, we’re excited to share that Disney is building on the story of the Jungle Cruise at both Disneyland and the Magic Kingdom to include new adventures that stay true to the experience we know and love – more humor, wildlife and skipper heart – and also reflect and value the diversity of the world around us.
Kevin Lively former Jungle Cruise skipper shared more information in this video:

You can expect the changes to happen later this year…
Imagineers are excited to invite current Jungle Cruise skippers at Disneyland park and Magic Kingdom park to a Jungle Navigation Company Roll Call, where they will be among the first to hear more about the new adventures and wonders coming down the river.
Recently, Imagineers had the chance to provide a sneak peek to a few skippers at Magic Kingdom park – check out the Walt Disney World Ambassador team on Instagram, @WDW.Ambassador, to see additional reactions, and stay tuned for more details about the enhancements in store for the Jungle Cruise, coming later this year.
