    Could A Cast Member Walk from Main Street USA into the Jungle Cruise?

    I know that the Disneyland Cast Members would never do something like this, but for the sake of discussion, consider this aerial photo of Disneyland:

    There is an obvious service road (path?) running behind the West side of Main Street USA with the Jungle Cruise in very close proximity. Would a Cast Member be able to walk into the Jungle Cruise from the service road?

    It's been a while but there exist photos from that area, when they let crowds out during busy times. I recall that there is a wall. Sure a CM can hop the fence or likely go through the JC dry docks to get into the bushes.

    Yes, I remember walking through there after fantasmic one night during the Summer Nightastic or whatever that promo was with Murphy's debut. I recall it being very plain, like an alley. I've been backstage during the CHOC walk both behind splash (super interesting with ride vehicles and all sorts of things) and behind the other side of Main Street (not as exciting, I think it was more CM area, with break rooms and food places, and maybe a recycling center?) but the one you reference here is the most direct and most empty, which is why they probably used to open it...

    Jungle Cruise boat storage is located along that road and a CM could come on-stage near Aladdin's Oasis from there, but it's supposed to just be for Jungle Cruise CMs. There's also access to the native village scene from that service road but it's restricted during operating hours. Outside of those two entry points, the jungle is blocked by a concrete barrier about 15 feet tall that no one would be able to jump.

    Well, the backstage alley that goes behind the west side of Main St goes past a storage area for Jungle Cruise. There were always one or two boats there whenever I would walk by.

    They could access the Jungle Cruise load/unload area by using cast member walkways. The only way to get into Jungle Cruise scenes would be to climb a concrete wall and fence, or use an emergency exit which has plenty of signage and would not bring you directly in front of guests.

    Once again, my extremely vague descriptions are too accurate and everything is being taken out of context unfortunately.
