Jungle Cruise Update

Are we going to have shrunken wallet jokes instead of shrunken heads jokes? Or maybe a little of both.

"If you lose something, you'll pay for it on your way out. Don't lose your heads if you still have it. Trader Sam will sell your shrunken head if you get mad about losing your wallet."

"Don't complain to Alberta Falls. Trader Sam is his loyal servant. Alberta is on the take."

"Sam don't mind a little blood on his hands. Alberta won't know or if he does, so what? Trader Sam will sell the knife that cut many tourists."

"If you lose it, Trader Sam will find it. If you didn't lose it, you will and he'll sell it back to you or the highest bidder."

"Be sure to take all your belongings when you disembark. You don't want to ask it back from Trader Sam. He'll mistake it for stealing from his new gift shop and he will deal with you in shrunken heads."
Huh?

In practice, Lost and Found repositories generally have a very limited time of entirely voluntary and complimentary retention before the contents are redistributed or discarded. The finder has no legal responsibility to reunite the artifact with the careless former owner.
True. Disney (used to? I don't know anymore. It's been a while since I have seen a notice) have lost and found sales. If it's been in their possession for quite sometime and no one has come forward, they sell it off.

Just an update but the DL President announced JC will be reopening with the new scenes this summer:


It's cool there are a few additions and changes to look forward to after a year of closing. Add a brand new land (AC), it should be enough to get locals and tourists more excited to come this summer.

Add to that, Galaxy's Edge hasn't been open to the public for more than 10 months. There's a lot of people who still haven't seen it, my family and friends included.

So true! Even crazier that ROTR was only opened for about 3 months before the shut down. Both the land and especially that ride are still spanking new and something most people haven't experienced yet, including my own mother. It's going to be fun to take her this year because she'll have two new lands and three brand new rides to experience not counting the updated attractions like JC.

I didn't want to bump this thread for just mere speculation on my part but since it is now bumped, does anyone have a sneaking suspicion that they will officially open this on July 17th?

I feel that's what they are aiming for at least given this is one of the original rides to open with the park and what better way to promote it on it's official birthday along with the park in general? Since they confirmed it is suppose to open in the summer, I'm guessing that's when they want to open it.

And Jungle Cruise the movie opens on July 30th now. So it would be even a bigger opportunity to cross promote both the ride and film just before that comes out.

Sorry if this has been posted elsewhere in the thread already and I missed it, but D23 magazine mentioned that there'll be a man-eating plant somewhere on the ride.

"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.

Progress continues at both parks as Imagineers build on the original story with new adventures that stay true to the experience we know and love. Today we’re revealing a behind-the-scenes look at the work on Trader Sam’s newest venture, which recently dropped in at Disneyland.

True to his reputation as the best merchant in the jungle, Trader Sam has found a way to convert the new Lost & Found location into something more profitable for the Jungle Navigation Company Ltd. The Jungle Cruise appears to be going the route of all the best rides – ending with a gift shop! Take a look at this first look above!

True to their reputations, our world-famous skippers will continue their unique presentations along the river with interactions that guests expect. In this video, Disney Imagineer Kevin Lively takes us on recent trip down the river at Magic Kingdom to share a reminder of some classic Jungle Cruise moments: "

Wow, so I was pretty much right (Ok, off by a day ;)). I had a strong feeling it will open on the birthday so this is great news. And another incentive to go back to the park in July although I am already dreading that line lol.

In the video, the apes seem really shy staying completely under that tent... or maybe trying to avoid stormy weather of a certain state. ;)

July sounds like a great time to go. Always love the Red, White and Blue bunting on Main Street too. Hopefully masks won’t be required outdoors by then. It’ll be really lame if Disney requires them in the So Cal heat of July when neither the state or CDC requires it. Not to mention the fact that they re not required by Disney at WDW

The very close up images they posted of what they've done so far take me back to my Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 forum days when I'd adopt a similar strategy to show off one day's work, and obscure the fact there's nothing else done.

We actually been considering to go during July and thought about going on the actual birthday so it will be perfect to do. We're going to decide in the next few weeks since I assume it could start filling up by then (but most of July is still very open ATM).

And yes would love for it all to be completely maskless. We're all we'll be fully vaccinated soon including the kids so we all feel like Superman lol (oh wait, it's Disney), so we all feel like Captain America! ;)
