    Re: Jungle Cruise Rules

    I recently talked to a lead on Jungle Cruise about non-OG jokes and he said for that as long as they're appropriate for kids, they're pretty lenient. However the one type of joke he won't stand for and he gets on his CM's for, are jokes about the animals being fake. For example one I hear a lot that falls under this category, during the Ancient Cambodian Shrine:

    Skipper: "Can anyone tell me what kind of snakes those are?"
    Kid #1: "Cobra?"
    Skipper: "Nope! Plastic."

    It definitely ruins the magic, especially for the kids.

Most Skips will have enough sence to know how and when to deliver a joke and most new jokes are harmless....(of course that's my opinion!)
    I've heard enough "custom" jokes on there (even some I've never heard again from the same skipper) to believe that most, if not all of the skippers, are just adding in when they feel like it. I'm pretty sure that they have a good idea of what would be appropriate as I've never heard a one cross the line.

    Jr. Miss Sunnygirl has an actual copy of a Jungle Cruise script given to her by a former CM. The script has several parts where it gives several alternative jokes to be read at the Skipper's choosing. According to the script however, they must use something from the script, and cannot use their own material.

Skippers though do add in their own dialouge. The added dialouge usually occurs during the evening hours when management is more concerned with the parade and fireworks crowd control and less people are on the attraction. I know he was at WDW, but I'm sure it isn't drastically different.

    Yes, I know.

    It can never be funny and must instead elicit a groan from the Guests.

    That is also what I thought.
