Disney Jungle Cruise
Disney Jungle Cruise is on the surface a trip down a jungle river which replicates parts of the Nile, Burma’s Irrawaddy River, Cambodia’s Mekong, and Africa’s Congo, but the real show here is the skipper and his stream of bad jokes and punny patter.
The Disney Jungle Cruise was one of the original Disneyland attractions, introduced on Opening Day, 1955.
If you’re friendly with your skipper and chat him up, he’s likely to be funnier.
Ah I miss working the “Jungle” so much. The last sentence above is right, we are funnier in person. In fact, I was one of ten contributing writers for the 50th anniversary script. Also, many jungle skippers have gone on to do stand-up comedy, including myself. Good times!
