I love ANYTHING that affirms the standing of the Jungle Cruise in pop culture. Whether it's the Christmas overlay or a song by Weird Al.

Can't wait to see gorillas in Santa hats!

The Jingle Cruise in Disney World is just new names of the boats and Christmas jokes. The pretty much sums it up in 1 sentence.

Is Santa's sleigh pulled by flying hippos?

Dude, you joke about hippos. You make your little comments. These are not creatures created by a divine hand. They are fierce, blood-lusting killers. Making cute comments or jokes about hippos is irresponsible. The only animal more dangerous than a hippo is Amanda Bynes.

I hope that puts things in context for you.

Its true. Hippos are very dangerous. Also, Santa's sleigh is pulled by reindeer, and yes, Amanda is very dangerous :)

So no one other than Tyler has an actual opinion on the attraction? Great.

I sincerely hope Disney is hearing all the mediocre reviews and is working to improve this as they get closer to Christmas. I was hoping this would be successful and maybe - just maybe - the bosses at WDW would finally get over themselves and allow some of the other holiday overlays like Holiday Haunted Mansion.

They rename the boats (Bomokandi Bertha to Brrr Bertha), interpolate some Christmas decor into the queue, and slightly modify some of the jokes so that they become "festive". And, uh, Trader Sam has some red-and-white clothing on.

Just got of the Jingle Cruise. I though it was cute. There are not too many visual changes but the line has some decorations, the music and the holiday themed jokes were fun. It was a festive twist in the classic ride.
