  • [Idea] Adding the Jungle Book and Lion King characters to JC

    It's already a cheesy attraction, why not liven it up, add some really fun animitronics for the kids, songs, singing, laughing, brief scene dialogues. Timon, Pumbaa, Baloo, Simba, Scar, Bagheera, and King Louie etc.

    It could be a huge hit. And reintroduce a new generation to an older film (The Jungle Book 1967) heck even The Lion King is 18 years old.

          Cheesy original attraction > Cheesy attraction with tacked on Disney characters

          To wit: it's a small world.

          Let's keep the Jungle Cruise as it is. Or demolish it and put in something better. That's always an option.

              Just leave it. Characters aren't going to increase riders on this one. Now if we were to replace it with something new maybe....but it would have to be damn good to warrant destroying an original attraction.
              In the quest for quality, I have no problem with the characters footing the bill.

                I'm all for more movie attractions, especially classic movies, but they wouldn't blend right with the semi-realistic style of Jungle Cruise animals. Give them their own original attraction.

                  No movie characters in the Jungle Cruise.

                    I agree... not all attractions have to be about the movies or shows.

                        No. Enough with the Toonification of Disneyland attractions.
                        "Disneyland is often called a magic kingdom because
                        it combines fantasy and history, adventure and learning,
                        together with every variety of recreation and fun,
                        designed to appeal to everyone."

                            I'm definitely down for it as long as it's not...

                            HI I'M A CHARACTER FROM THE JUNGLE BOOK. IGNORE THE PRETTY NATURE OF THE RIDE TO LOOK AT ME.

                            Two minutes later.

                                Exactly. Count me as another definite "no".

                                Though I would love to see a TLK dark ride someday. Just not necessarily in Disneyland's Adventureland, since space is pretty limited, and because if something new came to DLR's Adventureland, personally, I would love to see something original (not based completely off a pre-existing franchise).

                                  No movie characters in the Jungle Cruise.
                                  It is a direct result of the view that the typology of "Disney" is predicated on ownership of intellectual property. The Jungle Cruise (and other Disneyland originals) has not really become nor is it associated with a "Disney" franchise and therefore is lacking in "Disney" content.

                                    Which is a sad state of affairs....

                                      Maybe in the event that the ride needs a boost in the distant future, but as it is now, definitely not. It's just not necessary at this point.

                                        I believe the Jungle Cruise is VERY Disney as it is.
                                        I would not be opposed to adding more "adventure" to the attraction or a technological update... But adding "toons" is a no o no NO.
