Jungle Cruise to Reopen July 16 at Disneyland as work continues on the attraction at Magic Kingdom

Welcome back aboard the World Famous Jungle Cruise! On this cruise, we’ll tell you how you can see back side of water, hippos that wiggle their ears, and skippers with a pun for every river bend!

Jungle Cruise will reopen July 16, 2021 at Disneyland park, with an updated experience that welcomes new characters from around the world plus even more of the humor, wildlife and skipper heart that makes this classic attraction a favorite for all guests. Updates will continue to be made to the attraction at Magic Kingdom, as the attraction will remain open to complete the work. Changes will be finished this summer.

Progress continues at both parks as Imagineers build on the original story with new adventures that stay true to the experience we know and love. Today, Imagineers are revealing a behind-the-scenes look at the work on Trader Sam’s newest venture, which recently dropped in at Disneyland.

True to his reputation as the best merchant in the jungle, Trader Sam has found a way to convert the new Lost & Found location into something more profitable for the Jungle Navigation Company Ltd. The Jungle Cruise appears to be going the route of all the best rides – ending with a gift shop! Take a look at this first look!

True to their reputations, our world-famous skippers will continue their unique presentations along the river with interactions that guests expect. In this video, Disney Imagineer Kevin Lively takes us on recent trip down the river at Magic Kingdom to share a reminder of some classic Jungle Cruise moments:
