Disneyland spared only a certain amount of expense on this year’s transformation of the Jungle Cruise into the generic-winter-holiday-but-mostly-Christmas-themed Jingle Cruise. Today, we are going to share a few photos of the merriment added to the attraction’s queue, and we’ll show you some of the elements from within the actual attraction in a couple of days.
The first thing that many guests will notice is that the Jingle Cruise is not in Adventureland, it’s in Advent Land! It’s amazing how much theming can be done by just nailing up a few boards.
Another simple holiday change, the attraction’s upper-level exit lights are now a holiday-appropriate red and green, instead of just the stodgy, Scroogey, legally required red.
While we’re upstairs, let’s take a look at the animatronic bird above the stairs. He is certainly ready for the holiday!
Many items were added to the ground floor of the queue as well. Our favorite was these packages:
They’re all addressed as gifts and sport snazzy Albert Schweitzer stamps (named for that famous postal worker, Dr. Albert Stamp). You can even peel back a corner to see the back side of postage!
That’s all for now. See you on Wednesday with more photos!
