Glad you enjoyed!! It is an awesome experience!
I guess it is obvious that I LOVE this ride. But my absolute favorite way to experience this ride is with a sign language interpreter!! I have an aunt who is deaf and we rode the Jungle Cruise with the interpreter and is was just amazing!
For those wondering about it...
Disney offers Sign Language Interpreters for most shows/parades and some attractions for guests that are hearing impaired and their party. You have to be at a certain park/attraction at a certain time/day. So like we had to be at the Jungle Cruise at like 10am on Monday. We met up with the interpreter outside the attraction and got on the boat through the exit (which isn't a big deal since the exit is the entrance...) Then they load the rest of the boat up with regular people in the queue. The skipper still tells all of the jokes, its just the interpreter well...interprets them.
Even if you don't know sign language it is just the most amazing Jungle Cruise experience. I know quite a bit of sign language but I cannot read it as fast as some can do it. So I wasn't able to catch all of the jokes through sign language but I know almost all of the jokes anyways and the skipper still say them.
Anyways that is my favorite Jungle Cruise memory!
(Oh and if you want to know the second best attraction with Sign Language Interpreters then you MUST see the Beauty and the Beast show! Sit down front on the right side, it is better than the show! Trust me. )
I've only rode this once since having tickets the last 2 years..I always forgot to ride it and then we did..and it was ok..I can def. say the skipper
s humor was the best part. The rest of my party didn't really enjoy the ride and after riding the safari in AK with real animals..it is kinda lame in comparison.
The skipper had mentioned some innapropiate jokes that you could tell some of the other parents on the boat with there little ones didn't quite enjoy so much.
I found them funny whatever they were but I could see why the parents weren't thrilled with some of the disney magic being talked about in that kind of manner.
I really should convince the rest of my family to give it a go again someday when were bored.
I love this ride also. i have been on it every time i've been to Disney, but the recent time i went the guide was great. the corny jokes where there, but she was on point with making jokes with the people on the boat. what ever i did and other people did. she had a joke or a come back for what ever we said or did.
I was on it this week. Waiting in line was a pain, but the ride was great as usual. The guide was pretty funny. Never gets old!!
The jokes are so bad theyre funny. Its a must for me and the family
Insert signature here.
I love sitting in the back of the boat so that when you're waiting to park at the dock you can hear the skipper behind you say the same jokes you just heard 2 minutes before lol
Rumor is a huge refurbishment will be taking place on the Cruise soon!!
Maybe it will just be a refurb like thunder mountain went through?
There have been rumors for a long time that the piranha scene from Disneyland's JC was going to be added to WDW's JC. That was going to be a straight swap with an old scene and not an expansion as such. As well, an improvement to the hippo pool where it actually feels like the hippo bumps you're boat is another older rumor. If the JC is in fact expanded it will be interesting to see if WDW gets the piranha scene.
Funny story about the JC. When I was in grade school (probably late 80s) we took a family trip during a slow time and late one night we rode it, just me my sis and mom and dad. The guy running our boat after the first turn told me to take the wheel. So I did. He then jumped up on top of the boat (probably to smoke or something) and he let me pilot the whole ride. Yelling at me the whole time to turn and to "watch out!" It was awesome. I'll be honest, it wasn't until years later that I realized it was on tracks. I was young and I seriously thought I was driving it.
I miss told old days when they use to shoot the hippos.
Change is for the better!
I loved this ride when I went. We went for the park extra hours at like 1am, and the experience was fun and the jokes our driver told were hilarious
This ride is just ok for me. However it really depends on the "guide" We went in December and the park was closing early for MVMCP and while we were waiting for the boat infront of us to unload the people he began saying how we would be missing Wishes because of the park closing early. He then began to give his impression and renacting the Wishes firework spectacular. It was proably one of the funniest moments I've ever had at Disney
