    Jingle Cruise sucks(?)

    Rode it a couple of minutes ago. Just a couple of Lights on the queue and the skipper singing Jingle bells. Everything else was the same. Still at the park. Wasted 80 minutes at the queue.

    Not exactly a Disney experience by the sound of it. Looks like bean counters got their way again.

    ...it would have been better if they stuck reindeer antlers on the zebras?

    I think this was a poorly conceived overlay to begin with. The ride's too location and gag specific and drawing attention away from what's going on lessens the ride more than many others would experience. Any sort of holiday overlay would almost HAVE to come off like the old Whimsical Will sub redos from before Nemo, and... as much as I'm an old Dementite who loved Will long before I knew he worked for the Mouse, dear LORD those were awful.

    At least they didn't make it tacky like Haunted Mansion Holiday

    I wouldn't say it's fully ready yet. They are doing "soft openings" and the skippers are still in the process of learning their Christmas spiels. It was never going to be a massive overlay; just decor in the queue/boats and some new Christmas jokes. I say give it a few more days and the skips will be more comfortable with their new scripts.

    I planned to skip it from the moment I heard about it, so bravo OP for having more of an open mind than I did. Everything doesn't have to be Christmas. Main Street, New Orleans Square? Ok, they look great - but this isn't the Glendale Galleria. Oh ... Wait.

    Glad that I am not the only one. It didn't sound that amazing to me. Everybody else was looking forward to it. I will check it out on Friday when the Holidays official begin. I will see then.

    Funny, Disney said ours wasn't opening until the 12th.

    I saw the WDW version and it was boring as heck. Wouldn't be surprised if ours sucks, too.

    I thought so too, but it opened today. Signs are up and everything. The skipper said it was the Jingle Cruise. Just a couple of lights on the queue. That's all they did.

    The Jungle Cruise half-assing and making a mockery of a Christmas celebration almost fits better than what was announced, I feel.

    Sound like it is still basically the same ride, rather than something like the Nightmare Before Christmas overlay which totally obliterates the HM ride. So that's a good thing.

    Re: Jingle Cruise sucks.

    When it was reported Disney did this quickly because they felt they needed another holiday attraction, I knew this would be a quick put together due to the short time. Kind of disappointed they advertised this, as it could have just been done as decoration and nothing big as they didn't change the ride much.

    Re: Jingle Cruise sucks.

    There are literally hundreds of top TV and standup comedy writers in So Cal. You'd think Disney would hire a few to develop a Jingle Cruise spiel and entrance queue gags that would be screamingly funny.

    And so once again, Disney lives down to our lowest expectations.

    From the description of the Jingle Cruise in this thread and this video of its lame twin in WDW, it looks like the best comedy will have been the jokes in the Jingle Cruise anticipation thread last month.
    "With the acquisition of Marvel and now of Lucasfilm,
    Disney may have finally found the grail. You don't need
    imagination or art. All you need is a brand."
