Usually, when a Disneyland ride goes down, it’s sad and disappointing. But sometimes, it results in unique entertainment. During recent downtime of the Jungle Cruise at Disneyland, Skippers re-enacted the ride, complete with plush hippos.
Jungle Cruise Skippers Re-Enact Ride
TikTok user londonann14 shared the above video from outside Jungle Cruise at Disneyland. The video features one Cast Member acting as the ride Skipper while the others carry props to re-create the rest of the ride. In this particular scene, three Cast Members carry plush hippos while the Skipper pretends to shoot a pistol.
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen Skippers find creative ways to entertain guests. We saw a similar scene at the Jungle Cruise in Walt Disney World back in February 2022.
According to the Disneyland app, Jungle Cruise is operational at this time.
The Jungle Cruise is an opening-day riverboat attraction located in Adventureland. Originally intended to be more educational and straightforward, the cruise is now renowned for its dry humor and excessive use of puns — courtesy of a Cast Member guide known as a Skipper. As guests traverse the jungles of the world, they are treated to a bombardment of witty one-liners.
A movie loosely based on the experience was released in 2021, starring Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt. Check out our full review here. Also in 2021, but unrelated to the film, the Jungle Cruise was updated with a new backstory, scenes, and cultural sensitivity changes.
Versions of Jungle Cruise exist at Magic Kingdom, Tokyo Disneyland, and Hong Kong Disneyland.
