Jungle Cruise

An Attraction in Disneyland

Last updated: November 12, 2023

At a Glance
On this boat ride through jungle waterways, passengers encounter elephants, lions, monkeys, and a menacing hippo. It’s a long-enduring Disney favorite with the boatman’s spiel adding measurably to the fun.

As more technologically advanced attractions have been added to the park over the years, the Jungle Cruise has, by comparison, lost some of its luster. Though still a good attraction, it offers few thrills and no surprises for Disneyland Park veterans, many of whom can rattle off the ride’s narration right along with the guide. For park first-timers, however, the Jungle Cruise continues to delight. Jungle Cruise has received some updates in recent years, so it's worth riding again if you've skipped it during your last few visits. Gone are the culturally insensitive stereotypes. Instead playful monkeys in humorous situations have taken their place.

A family from Anacortes, Washington, has this to say about the queue:

Jungle Cruise’s line can be insanity-inducing long (as in the case of the Jingle Cruise). If the line goes upstairs, expect a very long wait through the grandfather of switchback queues. Nearly every time you expect the queue to turn around back to the ride, it continues into another room.

This ride loads slowly, and long lines form as the park fills. To compound problems, guests exiting Indiana Jones tend to head for the Jungle Cruise. Go early, or during a parade or Fantasmic! Be forewarned that the Jungle Cruise has an especially deceptive line: Just when you think that you are about to board, you are shunted into yet another queuing maze (not visible outside the ride). Regardless of how short the line looks when you approach the Jungle Cruise, inquire about the length of the wait—at least you will know what you are getting into. If the second floor of the queue building is in use, you’re in for at least a 20-minute wait. When the queue splits before the loading dock, the left lane is often quicker. Finally, many readers consider the Jungle Cruise much better at night.
