    Cruise by night
    Jungle Cruise is very popular and it was hard to get on without waiting 40+ mins during the day. However, we stayed late for fireworks a couple times and found the ride much quieter afterwards - that said you have to be happy enough to ride in the dark if doing that. We did and on reflection think it was probably more fun at night.

    Fun Nostalgia
    I give it higher ratings because it's nostalgic. I don't think it's changed much since I rode it 49 years ago with those A, B, C & D paper tickets! The main gig is the puns of the entertainer-driver. Although I would ride it again, I certainly wouldn't wait an hour let alone two hours to get on it. I like the idea that someone had that it should be based off the Jungle Book.

    All good things are wild and free!
    I just love the Jungle Cruise. A nice portrayal of life with the wild. Takes place in a boat that glides across the water for a relaxing and soothing ride. A nice way to sit for a bit after a lot of standing or walking. Roof over the boat offers shade on a sunny day. A very nice ride!

    Long lines but always a classic
    This ride is pretty much identical to the one in Disneyland. The one difference we noticed is that it is extremely popular in Disney World, and a lot more than in Disneyland. The lines are long and the Genie + slots go quickly. It is a classic ride and always a fun one to go on, but not worth standing in long lines.

    Jungle Jokes!
    This is one of my all time favorite attractions…but…..because Disney went PC and removed some of the sets it had dropped in likeness. Bring back Trader Sam, the Natives and the original Fast Pass. The Cast Members here were a little bit for friendlier than at some attractions but still lack the Disney magic.

    Thank you Captain Bri
    They had it set up for the Christmas season. While doing the very merry Christmas at Magic Kingdom, we had Captain Bri. She was outstanding, funny and made the ride that much more enjoyable. She truly made it a great experience especially for my 12 yr olds

    Hilarious skippers
    Our family of two adults, an 8 year old and a 6 year old visited Disney World for two weeks holiday in October. We rode this fun ride twice during our stay and both times were excellent. We used our Genie + which meant no longer than a 20 minute wait. Both times our skippers were hilarious and it was really fun. Enjoy!

    Riding at Night is More Interesting and Your Enjoyment Will Depend on Your Captain's Skill at Telling Corny Jokes.
    The Jungle Cruise is a Disney classic, and the ride hasn't changed much from when it opened. However, it is still always a fun experience, and your enjoyment is very much dependent on how skilled your captain is at delivering the corny jokes. I find riding at night to be more interesting as the darkness adds a slight exotic nature to the experience. With that said, there is no way I would wait for an hour or more to ride. Try to get a Genie + for later in the evening and you hopefully can wait to do this in the early-mid afternoon.

I felt some parts could be a little spruced up. Still an enjoyable ride on the water. All that mattered was that my 4-year-old grandchildren enjoyed it and they did. They love seeing animals whether real or fake. If it was just the adults, we may have skipped this one during this visit.

If you are expecting something hi-tech then you are likely to be disappointed.

But if you can absorb some of the magic then this really is a lovely ride.

You board a boat which sails round the river, travelling through Africa, Asia and South America.

En route you will see, hidden amongst the jungle foliage, animatronic animals like the bathing elephants and hippos, tigers, lions and of course, crocodiles.

It’s a little ‘twee’ nowadays, but if you can just look past the slightly clunky animals it’s a lovely ride.

We certainly enjoy it time and time again, so give it a go!

The actual ride is totally lame, but the fun is listening to the "captain" tell you all about the stuff you are looking at.... lots of clever, dumb jokes. Worth the time, but not a thrill ride. Use this as a rest period. Captain Paige was really sharp

Don't waste your time. I would give less than 1 if it were possible. The wait was supposed to be 70 minutes and ended up being 2 hours and 15 minutes, for a horrible corny 3 minute ride, with animatronics that were bad. The jokes were horrible, wouldn't even qualify as dad jokes, a total waste of time. Spend your time at the real safari in Animal Kingdom. Don't waste your time.

A Magic Kingdom classic. I believe it has gotten some new life thanks to the recently released movie. But, personally I think that what makes this attractions enjoyable are the "captains" taking us on a cruise down different rivers across the World. Sadly, the animals animatronics are outdated. Disney need to put down some love and money to it.
