2014 Jingle Cruise

‘Tis the season to deck the jungle with holly — and hammy jokes — as the 2014 Jingle Cruise is now underway at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom. Last week, the seasonal overlay to the Jungle Cruise returned for a second annual run, this time with some notable upgrades.

Last year’s inaugural Jingle Cruise was criticized for confining the custom scenery largely to the Jungle Cruise’s boathouse queue, and for some jokes that were staler than fruitcake. As you can see in the following Jingle Cruise POV videos, more holiday decor has been installed along the riverbanks, and the spiel has been adjusted appropriately to reflect the additions.

Jingle Cruise Debuts Today at the Magic Kingdom

by on November 7, 2014

Jingle CruiseToday marks the start of the Jingle Cruise at the Magic Kingdom’s Adventureland. This holiday overlay of the Jungle Cruise sees the Skippers who are clearly homesick during the festive holiday season, so they decided to create their own festive fun with homemade decorations, gifts, and more.

The Jingle Cruise began last year and has grown exponentially this year. In addition to the dock area being decorated and the boats being renamed with fun holiday themes, this year, many of the show scenes have been decorated too, like the gorilla camp, the temple, and even Ginger and Smiley. (It would appear some supplies didn’t quite make it to their correct locations.) Of course, the jokes are just as corny, with fun, holiday-inspired laughs included too.

The fun Jingle Cruise overlay will last through the holiday season. (Now…if we could only get a few other fun holiday overlays at Walt Disney World too…that would be great.)

Magic Kingdom AtMousePhere: The Music of Adventureland

by on August 24, 2014

Do you hear the sound of drums?

Do you hear the sound of drums?

When people say that they are going on an adventure and want you to help them put a playlist together, what songs would you add? Would it be full of somber, slow, quiet, soothing music? Some smooth jazz, perhaps? Absolutely not! The soundtrack would be full of high-energy, quick-paced, fun music.

That fun music can take a variety of forms. Maybe your adventure soundtrack would be upbeat piano music. Maybe it would be full of international flair. Or maybe it would just be full of drums and other percussion.

Adventureland in Magic Kingdom Park has a lot of different styles in its boundaries – from jungles to desert to the Caribbean coast. But any way you slice it, Adventureland means fun. And fun is what you hear in the background music surrounding the area. Let’s go break down the fun together!
