The Jungle Cruise is an amusing, easy ride where you’ll tour through the rainforests of the world like a true adventurer via a 1930s type boat.   Wave at all the people on the dock…. ’cause you may never see ‘em again. Of course, you’ve never seen ‘em before, so you aren’t gonna miss anything.  You’ll spot a variety of animatronic animals (snakes, elephants, tigers) all while your Skipper spouts out corny jokes that you might find funny.

You won’t get wet and there is no thrilling drop, so people of any age are welcome aboard. But don’t expect another Kilimanjaro Safaris (from Animal Kingdom) as these robotic animals will pale in comparison to the real thing. It’s merely a fun, tongue-in-cheek boat ride that children will probably enjoy.

The main negative of this ride is that the line gets incredibly long incredibly fast. If the line is over a thirty minute wait, I highly suggest grabbing a fast pass and heading for a shorter attraction in the area while you wait for your fast pass to kick in: The Magic Carpets of Aladdin, Pirates of the Caribbean, Swiss Family Treehouse or the Enchanted Tiki Room.

Rating: 3/5
