Now not only is there a holiday version of the Haunted Mansion and it's a small world, but for the 2013 holiday season at Disney theme parks there will also be a holiday version of the Jungle Cruise attraction. Both the Jungle Cruise rides at Disneyland in California and Magic Kingdom in Florida will be rethemed to the Jingle Cruise this year. The changeover will occur overnight and will not require the attraction to close down for refurb. Jingle Cruise is set to start operating in early November 2013.
Jingle Cruise will feature a seasonal storyline about the Skippers being homesick for the holidays. The queue and boathouse will be decorated for the holidays. There Skippers will also have new jokes that are holiday themed that they will tell during the tour. The Jungle Cruise boats will also be renamed to have holiday names. Additionally, a holiday themed radio broadcast will play in the background.
