    Tour guides "guide" riders through the jungles of the world, narrating w/ TONS of puns! Hilarious! Amazing animatronics! FastPass+ recommended. Better during the day than at night (for visuals).

    This is my all time favorite ride its no big thunder mountain but its so bad with the jokes I go on it about 5 times every year. The best skipper we had was last year, she improvised alot.

    If you get a good skipper this ride can be hysterical. Ours was great and the jokes are so corny you can't help but laugh.

    If you go during a busy day. Use your fast pass option for this ride and use the time to go on Pirates and the Swiss Family tree house.

    MARCIE (did I spell that right?...whatever) IS THE BEST! Seth is just as awesome, but Marcie was our first skipper. And you know there's just always something about your first ;)

    If you get an enthusiastic guide, it's hilarious. Definitely worth the stop every time we're in MK.

    A classic ride with punny jokes if you have a fun "tour guide" during Christmas they tweak the jokes and add decorations for the "jingle cruise"

    Your experience will vary depending on which skipper you get. Some are awesome and improvise and some just read from the script.

    It all depends on your skipper on how your experience is. Just remember...."It's the only thing in the Magic Kingdom that's not Frozen.....It's water!!!"

    Come late at night if you can. The line is much shorter and it's cool seeing things by the light of the boat.

    Super fun and hilarious if you've got the right tour guide. The audio animatronics are awesome :-)

    Awesome! I was a Jungle Cruise skipper at Disney! Great experience! Have a great time with the kids. It is fun at night for sure!

    If you thought the ride was corny or lame then unlike the guy on the pole over the rhino, you've missed the point...love this ride!

    One of the beat rides at Magic Kingdom if you're a fan of puns, word-play, and wedgy jokes.

    Word play is excellent! They are better than 95% of all current Hip Hop artists

    It's best to go at night. Possibly the best slow-moving ride at MK if you get a good skipper!

    If possible try to sit up front, if you have younger kids. Your child may be asked to be the Skipper for the Day! Read more

    A nice, relaxing ride around the rivers of the world, with captains who keep you laughing almost the whole trip!

    As the ride ages, the cruise "guides" have become the best parts- dishing out charming and hokey one liners by the boat load.

    If you are lucky enough to get Marcy as your driver, you'll pass out laughing! If you aren't, get off and wait for Marcy. Seriously.

    Best ride! The skipper can totally make or break it. Gotta like dry humor though

    Be sure to stop and tell one of the skippers.. You are there to pick up your red rubber band.

    Its fun and does not have a long line. The park attendants piloting the cruise are hilarious and have a dark sense of humor.

    Be nice to your skippers and laugh, they have feelings too! They do this to make you all smile :)

    Go at night for a completely different experience. (Keep in mind, going at night can be a little scary for the kiddos.)

    Hopefully you'll get Lynsey! She's the funniest boat captain; she didn't take anything seriously. 😆

    You get to see the 8th wonder of the world on this ride. The backside of water.

    Some of these skippers do this for a living; they're not a tv. Humor them and laugh and clap cause it makes the day go by smoother

    Brendan was our skipper and I liked him a lot. His dry humor made the otherwise mediocre ride pretty nice!

    this is a fun ride. it's different from the rest of the park. definitely should try to make it.

    Go at night! The humor is more "adult," there are much less screaming kids and it's NOT HOT.

    Never got to go on it as my 4 year old was pulled out of the line for only wearing underwear (pants had gotten wet).

    Meet elephants, hippos and other mammals. Thankfully the insect level is low and no mosquito repellent is needed.

    The line is very misleading. Just when you think you're almost there, it turns and heads to the back!

    Very short wait at night right before Spectromagic parade. We think night ride is better than during the day.

    You can only do this ride once per WDW trip because you can only take in so many awful puns on one vacation!
