oooh, politically correct jungles are tight!Moving today!
See video of the new Jungle Cruise scene.www.wdwmagic.com
Alberta Falls! You don't want to see the backside of a waterfall?The designs are solid enough, but ultimately I just don't understand the purpose of adding a story or reoccurring characters to the Jungle Cruise. Obviously I understand these changes were done for PC reasons, but part of the gag for the rhino scene is the commentary on the social hierarchy of the white explorer above the African guides. The gag still works, but a layer has been removed (although the new commentary of white man getting the horn with a white woman safe on top has humor in it, as well). Perhaps it would have been better to go ahead and redesign the entire scene, just as they have with the Native portions of the attractions. At the end of the day, though, I'm just happy the changes are independent of the new movie.
Here is the sunken boat scene as well from WDW
Yes, though it's worth noting that a sunken boat was rumored for the ride during the 50th anniversary enhancements, so they've had the plans for a while.Interesting gag choice given WDW's boat actually sunk last year.
Would make sense. Walt Disney World's Jungle Cruise has always been slightly more cartoonish (look at their Trader Sam). I greatly appreciate this maintenance of established design and their will to spend the extra money to do it. Here's a better look at the two versions.Does not appear to be the WDW version based on one video I just watched. So maybe DL is getting a slightly different figure?
