Disney legend has it that this classic attraction was conceived as a tour of live animals (a concept decades later implemented throughout Disney's Animal Kingdom), but that idea was nixed 'cause handlers feared the animals wouldn't be awake during the day. So Disneyland installed this collection of audio-animatronic creatures instead.


One of the best attractions when your skipper is hilarious, the animatronics are 100%, and the sound is balanced correctly. The jokes change and add a lot to the experience especially for repeat visits. However, the line is also deceptively long on this attraction.
It's overrated and not that interesting.
An original attraction that needs an update. Maybe we will see the Tokyo Disney updates come this way at some point. Though, it would almost be sad to see an original changed. Okay...just give us the new nighttime cruise!
Ive never been a fan of the cheesy comedy version of this ride. Sorry but the backside of water is funny only the first time through, if that. It's not how it was originally intended and deserves better imo.
Jungle Cruise is a really nice attraction at Disneyland and the attraction still shocks me on how "immersive" it is as you definitely do not feel like you are in Anaheim anymore. The attraction can be more enjoyable when you have an enthusiastic skipper.
Depends too much on your skipper. Still a classic.
