Disney has released an update on the changes being made to the Jungle Cruise at Disneyland and Walt Disney World. Disneyland’s version of the ride will reopen on July 16, 2021 while Walt Disney World’s will remain open and will be completed in Summer 2021.
Below is Disney’s statement on the Jungle Cruise project wrapping up:
Jungle Cruise will reopen July 16, 2021 at Disneyland park, with an updated experience that welcomes new characters from around the world plus even more of the humor, wildlife and skipper heart that makes this classic attraction a favorite. At Magic Kingdom Park, you can continue to enjoy the Jungle Cruise while updates are being made, and all changes will be completed this summer.
At Magic Kingdom, select scenes have already been removed from the attraction. Disney has previewed some of the changes that are coming, such as the animatronic Trader Sam being replaced by his gift shop, but guests haven’t seen anything new installed quite yet.
The transformation of the Jungle Cruise will be complete this summer in advance of Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary on October 1, 2021.
