$16M Upgrade For Tokyo Disneyland Jungle Cruise in 2014

A short but good news from Tokyo Disneyland as the park will do a 1.6 billion Yen ($16.1 million US) upgrade on Jungle Cruise that will close on January 6, 2014 and reopen Fall 2014. According to TDL press release, “The revamped version of the attraction will have new lighting effects and other special show effects. In addition, a specially written musical sound track will be heard throughout the attraction for the first time in any Jungle Cruise. Also, an after-dark only “night cruise” will provide a unique take on the jungle adventure. 

The new Jungle Cruise will offer Guests an adventure that is even more thrilling than before. From on board the attraction’s boats, Guests will explore jungle landscapes full of wild animals with the help of their daring and comical skipper who guides them through the beauty and dangers of this exotic world. The adventure includes a startling encounter with one of the animal spirit guardians in the ruins of a lost jungle temple!”

I remind you that as announce in my previous update TDL apparently cancelled Cars Land and will build instead major additions in Fantasyland. More details in the full article HERE.

That's very good news!

Jungle Cruise is a major classic Disney attraction, but is already looking desperately outdated in all Disney parks. It needs to be updated.

My only disappointment is that, knowing WDI, US$ 16.1 won't do that much for the attraction. IMO it needs, before anything, new and better AA's. They could build much more realistic animals and natives nowadays, as many of them look almost embarrassing...

Double Good News in hearing TDL is keeping and upgrading its 2 major water attractions in Jungle Cruise and Rivers of America with its fleet of boats and ships still to carry on. I hope WDI will realize as OLC has and witnessed, what an impact and importance water based nautical attractions have on a park with TDS being a major example and "Great Success" based totally on the Romantic waterfronts with their cruises and entertainment within. Congratulations OLC, you have shown again what it takes to make and keep a Great Disney Park. Wish you would buy into Euro Disneyland.
