Had a chance to see Mickey today. The experience was incredible, very enjoyable. This is going to be wildly popular with the GP. Here's 2 videos I filmed while waiting in line and when we got to see Mickey. I apologize for the bad filming in advance as I wasn't really watching the screen during our meet, and I put the camera down thinking we were going to take a picture.

We just got word from our friends in Walt Disney Imagineering that an Adventureland attraction will receive its first-ever holiday makeover this year. Beginning in early November, Jungle Cruise at both Disneyland park and Magic Kingdom Park will temporarily transform into “Jingle Cruise” for the holiday season!

In this new seasonal storyline of the attraction, the Skippers have grown homesick for the holidays, so they’ve added holiday cheer to the Jungle Cruise queue and boathouse with decorations that have been mailed to them from home (plus a few they’ve created themselves). The Skippers have also added a slew of new jokes to their tours that are the perfect way to get guests in the holiday spirit. Additionally, Jungle Cruise boats have been renamed with the holidays in mind, and if guests listen carefully, they may hear a holiday-themed radio broadcast playing in the background.

Jingle Cruise will begin launches in early November at both parks. Be sure to keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog for more updates!

What do you think? Will you board the Jingle Cruise this holiday season? Tell us in the “Comments” section below!

I wonder if they will slip a few decorations onto the animals or scenes of the ride itself.

I think the crocodiles should wear elf hats and chew on elf legs.

I find it really interesting that they're doing this at one of the Florida resorts! Maybe a step in the direction of getting Haunted Mansion Holiday!?!?

http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2013/10/celebrate-halloween-week-with-limited-time-magic-at-the-happy-haunted-horseshoe-2/

During Halloween week, we’re offering some ghostly “Limited Time Magic” surprises at The Happy Haunted Horseshoe at the Walt Disney World Resort that’ll include daytime performances by the Cadaver Dans as well as special themed cupcakes and treats.

Beginning Monday, The Happy Haunted Horseshoe will feature ghostly entertainers dead-set on delighting you with spooky tricks and treats inside the Diamond Horseshoe Saloon at Frontierland.

Each day between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m., you’ll be able to join hostess Miss Betty Blue as she calls forth the harmonies of the Cadaver Dans, Dearly Departed Stan the piano player and morbid magician Abner Cadaver. There will also be snacks and Halloween cupcakes at The Happy Haunted Horseshoe to enjoy during the entertainment.
This “Limited Time Magic” opportunity is only happening October 28 – November 1 at the Walt Disney World Resort.

Be sure to check the Disney Parks Blog later today to find out what’s planned for Halloween week at Disneyland park.

That's what I immediately thought.
And I'm really hoping they keep the themeing
just to the dock and the boats.

It would look so out of place (to me),
if they added Christmas themeing to the jungle settings.

Does anyone know the exact date when JINGLE Cruise opens (No, that is not a typo I just made). It's supposed to be in early November.

Oh, I really hope so! I'm sure there will be a lot of eyes on this one to see if a seasonal make-over of an attraction will go over well. I totally understand why WDW doesn't do it, but I'd love to see Haunted Mansion Holiday here!

I really like the seasonal changes they do, like Haunted Mansion at DL. I hope it works out well so we can see more like it in the future!
