Jungle Cruise Is Now Jingle Cruise For The Holidays

Jingle Cruise

If you are a fan of the Disneyland Resort, you are probably already familiar with the special overlays like Jingle Cruise, The Haunted Mansion Holiday, and “it’s a small world” Holiday that the Disneyland Park receives during the holiday season every year. Taking a page out of Disneyland’s book, two years ago Disney World finally joined in on the fun by transforming their version of the legendary Jungle Cruise into the “Jingle Cruise” as well. Due to its popularity, the Jungle Cruise has made the switch once again this year. The Skippers are missing home this holiday season and have decorated the queue and boathouse with festive decorations, the boats have been renamed to receive holiday names, the Skippers are getting guests laughing with additional seasonal jokes, and there is even a holiday radio-show playing in the queue. In addition to being open during daily park hours, Jingle Cruise will also be in operation during Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Parties.

Disney World News – Unlock It’s A Small World For Disney Infinity 2.0

Small World Infinity

If your kids are like mine, they are big fans of videos games and of Disney Infinity specifically. Now that Infinity 2.0 has been released, it is at the top of my youngest son’s Christmas list. If you happen to already have the latest version or you have someone in the family that receives it for the holidays, Disney has a special surprise available. In the newly released Infinity 2.0 version, anyone with a MagicBand can unlock the “it’s a small world” attraction into their Toy Box. All you have to do is place your MagicBand on your Disney Infinity base, it will detect it and unlock the “it’s a small world” attraction with no internet connectivity required. And that’s not all; you will also be able to enchant other game players with the iconic “it’s a small world” theme song. You will need to create a saved game in order to always have access to this content. I absolutely love this extra little bit of Disney magic and I hope they do more of this in the future!

Disney World News – Jungle Cruise Transformed To Jingle Cruise

Jingle Cruise

If you are a fan of the Disneyland Resort you are probably already familiar with the special overlays like Jingle Cruise, The Haunted Mansion Holiday and “it’s a small world” Holiday that the Disneyland Park receives during the holiday season every year. Taking a page out of Disneyland’s book last year, Disney World finally joined in on the fun by transforming their version of the legendary Jungle Cruise into the “Jingle Cruise” as well. Due to its popularity, the Jungle Cruise has made the switch once again this year beginning Friday, November 7. Here’s the scoop from Disney Parks Blog:

The popular Magic Kingdom Park attraction, Jungle Cruise, has gone “Jingle Cruise” again for the second holiday season in a row! The additions, which debuted in the park on Friday, November 7, offer guests the chance to experience a holiday transformation of this fan-favorite Disney attraction. Jingle Cruise is again themed as if the Skippers are once again homesick for the holidays and decorated the attraction queue and boathouse with homemade decorations, gifts and items from back home. (If you listen carefully, you may also hear a holiday-themed radio broadcast playing in the background in the queue). The boats have been renamed to receive holiday names and the skippers are getting guests laughing with additional holiday jokes. The jungle has also received new seasonal supplies. Unfortunately, some missed their final destination falling deeper into the jungle. In addition to being open during daily park hours, Jingle Cruise will also be in operation during Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Parties.

Happy Holidays!
