It was announced earlier this year that Mickey’s Jammin’ Jungle Parade at Disney’s Animal Kingdom would be ending its almost 13 year run. We now know that the last performance of the parade will take place on May 31.
The parade is ending due to the large amount of construction taking place in the park that will interfere with the parade route, as well as some of the guest viewing areas.
Mickey’s Jammin’ Jungle Parade was a fun showcase of Disney characters, music, and animal puppets.
Disney’s Animal Kingdom is currently going through a substantial enhancement, with Festival of the Lion King debuting this June, a new night time extravaganza called Rivers of Light announced, and the Avatar-themed land set to debut in 2017.
There are no plans for a new parade for the park at the present time.
