After a month long refurbishment, the world famous Jungle Cruise is back open along with all of the same bad puns and exotic animals as you remember! It’s weird to say that I missed seeing the backside of water, but it was well worth the wait. Overall, the jungle looks much brighter and refreshed. The foliage has been trimmed back, lighting has revamped inside the temple, and all of the animation is working on the animatronics. So without further ado, let’s take a journey down the river.
Is this anyone’s first time making a report on Orlando Park Pass? Mine too
Don’t worry though, I have the necessary koalafications
But they’re completely irrelephant
Now who just leaves a book outside? The pages are just going to get soaking wet when it rains
The pygmies never come out to play
Snakes, why’d it have to be snakes
Someone needs to grab a broom because the base camp is still trashed
You’ll shoot your eye out gorilla!
How can you tell this is an African elephant? Because that’s what the script says
The second elephant is still getting some work done. Rumor has it he’ll be gone for a while
This report rocks
All the animals have gathered around the watering hole
Have any of you seen Simba?
Someone get that zebra some coffee, he’s still dead tired
In all honesty, it’s actually really impressive that they can all climb that high
Ginger is still looking for a hand out
This is the famous Schweitzer Falls aka the only thing left at Disney that’s not Frozen
Oh no, a crashed airplane. That only means one thing, more bad jokes
Don’t worry, hippos only attack when they wiggle their ears
Hungry hungry hippos
Some people say these natives will never go anywhere, they just keep going around and around and around
I don’t want to work, I want to bang on the drum all day
Um, excuse me, do you know where I can find a Mr. Bush? An Am Bush?
The river water has been dyed red, but it will tone out to a brown over time
And here it is, the eight wonder of the world, the backside of water!
Heading into the forbidden temple, lot of new lighting changes have been made inside
Tiger has some more natural light on him
And the spiders have a nice blacklight effect going on
I think we’re lost, let’s ask this guy for directions
We’ve stumbled upon an Indian elephant bathing pool
I never realized how much animation the animatronics have, it really looks great and very real in person
And that’s the Jungle Cruise! The refurbishment turned out great so definitely take a trip around the river the next time you’re there
