Follow Walt Disney World Resort on Foursquare and be sure to check-in during your visit to unlock a little extra magic.
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!!!"
You can only do this ride once per WDW trip because you can only take in so many awful puns on one vacation!
Ride a few times with different guides to get the full experience.
Always love the bad jokes and puns by the captains!
As the ride ages, the cruise "guides" have become the best parts- dishing out charming and hokey one liners by the boat load.
Watch out for head hunters!
Super fun and hilarious if you've got the right tour guide. The audio animatronics are awesome :-)
Skipper Ishmael is the best!
Love the ride. I enjoyed seeing the animals.
I find that female skippers are less funny than male skippers.
The cast members make this ride great. Animals could uses one refurb.
You always come out a head at Trader Sams
Meet elephants, hippos and other mammals. Thankfully the insect level is low and no mosquito repellent is needed.
Not the biggest fan
Totally different shtick during the holidays. It's all Christmased up.
Fun and pun-tasting! Visit during "Jingle Cruise" time for something a little different.
You get to see the 8th wonder of the world on this ride. The backside of water.
The cast members add a lot of humor to this ride
Great ride. The guides can be quite funny.
Pretty good little ride if you can tolerate the obvious/lame jokes.
The original Disney Safari. Still great after all of these years.
Suspend disbelief and enjoy the ride.
Fastpass kiosk located outside ride!
Brandon "with a B" was incredible! Best guide we've ever had.
Awesome ride, skippers are hilarious
How many puns is too many puns? You can never have too many puns
No breakdancing on this ride!
Taylor (one of the drivers) is HILARIOUS!!!
The animals are not real
Colin as driver
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!
Cassie is the best guide
Lindsay is the best cruise guide...super funny and just sells the ride completely
get on this ride early in the day...the line is always long
Its fun and does not have a long line. The park attendants piloting the cruise are hilarious and have a dark sense of humor.
Best to ride after 8pm. No lines!
This classic ride turns into the Jingle Cruise for the holidays!
Very nice! Great for kids, mostly little ones.
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.
Come late at night if you can. The line is much shorter and it's cool seeing things by the light of the boat.
So cute! Loved hearing some new holiday spirited jokes!
Ride it! Make sure it comes back next year.
It was horrible
Awesome and fun
A great addition to a classic attraction! Get a Fastpass!
Go at night less crowded and more entertaining.
Hopefully you'll get Lynsey! She's the funniest boat captain; she didn't take anything seriously. 😆
Your experience will vary depending on which skipper you get. Some are awesome and improvise and some just read from the script.
The "radio DJ" talking while you're in line is a hoot! Focus on him instead of kids' elbows in your butt. >_<
