    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.

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

    It's disappointing if you've been to Animal Kingdom and do the actual Safari as this is a fake Safari ride. But if there's a 60 min or less wait, grab a dole whip and get inline for this cooldown ride

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

    Always enjoyable. The boat skipper/guide really is the key to enjoyment of this ride. The cornier the jokes the better!

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

    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"

    1- O FAST PASS demorou + do que o habitual. 2- A moça que conduzia o Barco fez piada o tempo todo o que tornou a viagem muito chata. 3- Fui pq tenho filho pequeno, mas até para ele achei muito chato!

    Não sente no banco do meio. Péssima visão, sobretudo para crianças pequenas
