Disneyland's "Jingle Cruise" Decked Out For Christmas
The Jungle Cruise, that old school Disneyland ride where you sit in a boat listening to bad jokes for nine minutes, just got decked out for the holidays.
Jokingly called "The Jingle Cruise," the elephants, hippos, and of course, shrunken head dealer Trader Sam - who at press time is still running a special that offers "two of his heads for one of yours" - have all gotten into the act. It's the first time the ride's characters have ever been decorated, although the boats and entryway got Christmas lights last year.
The Jungle Cruise is one of the park's oldest rides, dating back to opening day in 1955, although the narration was initially serious and didn't include jokes until 1962, Wikipedia says. The O.C. Register has video of the Christmas version.
The holiday decor stays up till Jan. 6.
