The Beloved Jingle Cruise Sails Back Into Walt Disney World for the Holiday Season


The holiday spirit is taking over the waters of Walt Disney World once again, as the cherished Jingle Cruise makes its seasonal return to the Magic Kingdom’s Adventureland. This whimsical, holiday-themed overlay of the classic Jungle Cruise ride has become a festive tradition for many, and its return is one of the key indications of the return to holiday festivities at the park.

Upon boarding the Jingle Cruise, it’s clear that the Jungle Cruise skippers have been busy decking the hulls. Garland wraps around the canopy, and ornaments dangle from the overhead. But it’s not just the boat that’s received a holiday makeover; the entire attraction is a vision of holiday cheer meets jungle chic. From festooned campsites to Santa-hat-wearing gorillas, each scene along the river brings a touch of holiday magic.

For Disney fans, the Jingle Cruise has become as much a part of the holiday tradition as Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party and the Epcot International Festival of the Holidays. It’s a delightful treat for the senses that offers a fun twist on this classic opening day attraction.

Disney Imagineers are known for their attention to detail, and they’ve ensured that each holiday season brings subtle changes to the attraction, making it a fresh experience year after year. Even the skipper’s jokes get a holiday makeover!
