Paid Preview for Refurbished Jungle Cruise Coming for D23 Gold Members

Can you believe we just over a week away from the grand reopening of the Jungle Cruise? Next Friday, the classic ride with reimagined scenes will once again be open for guests visiting Disneyland Park to enjoy. The same day, D23 Gold Member will have the opportunity to take part in a paid preview of the attraction, being among the first to see the refurbished attraction!

Tickets for this event will be $75 plus a $7 processing fee. Tickets will go on sale tomorrow at 10 am PDT!

At the event, you will enjoy the scenery at Tropical Hideaway while you enjoy Loco Moco Bao, Sweet Lumpia, Coffee, bottled juices, and water, and even Dole Whip! While you enjoy your treats, you can also enjoy a panel of talent from Walt Disney Imagineering as they talk about the rich history and process of designing the new scenes.

You will then be invited to embark on your bote as you travel through the Jungle so you can see the new scenes and hear all the new puns from your trusty skipper. Guests visiting this event will get a commemorative skipper hat and credential as well as a few other surprises!
