Best Attraction at Disneyland Resort
Set sail for high adventure in Asia, Africa and South America during a guided tour of the world’s most remote rivers. Cast off on a thrilling expedition where tigers, gorillas, elephants and maybe even a headhunter await your arrival. The original Jungle Cruise opened on July 17, 1955 at Disneyland. Based on Disney’s award-winning True-Life Adventure films, Jungle Cruise premiered with a more serious and educational tone. In the early 1960s, however, Walt Disney introduced more drama and lighthearted scenes and asked one of his most accomplished animators, Marc Davis, to sketch some humorous gags.
