    It would be even better if they replaced Sam with Tia Dalma, then at the end she can get all big, disappear and then nothing happens.

    Re: Jungle Book Cruise?

    Wow... wasted 5 minutes reading all of this.

    Paris does not have a Jungle Cruise for a very simple reason. Water does this thing called "freeze" and that was specifically cited by Disney as to why France would not be a good enviroment to build an outdoor river based attraction. Personally I have never been there so I do not know what is and isn't there so you can save your breath... but that was the official response later included in the VMK tour.

    As far as changing Jungle. I posted the majority of my enhancement concepts on here, some of it may actually happen. If you want a "Jungle Book" take out Aladdin and make a show there. Word on the street is they can't even keep track of their lamp...

    Jungle is a classic, I say it because I've enjoyed it, and I say it as a Skip who lived it. Done properly it can be an amazing experience, done poorly can be downright painful. You were partially right about one thing. Officially the comedy started in 63, per the 55 crew the comedy started shortly after the summer of 55.

    The weather in Tokyo is similar to that found in Paris. Snow often powders Tokyo Disneyland. Water needs to be stagnant to freeze. Just keeping the water moving a little will keep the water from freezing. The only "official" explanation I have heard is the prominence of similar attractions across the continent.

    Except, of course, the Mark Twain/Rivers of America and Storybookland. But other than that, absolutely.

    Re: Jungle Book Cruise?

    While I appreciated Jungle Cruise as being a classic, and the most completely themed attraction in all of Disneydom, I have a really hard time getting in line for it whenever I'm in the park.

    And that's even with a 5 minute line.

    Is a great ride still great even if no one visits it?

    No one ever wants to ride it with me, they say "YAWN no we've been on that before." They don't seem to say that to Pirates or Indiana Jones next door.

    Pirates isn't a high speed adventure but the audio animatronics are better and it's got a lot more show to it.

    There are rumours that Splash Mountain will soon be coming to DLP (that's right folks, they don't have Splash in France!).
    With the controversy surrounding Song of the South, I suggested that Splash be themed around the Jungle Book.

    Can it have a loop?

    Glad that everyone read the entire post! Also trying to remember the last time it snowed in the Jungle... not that that would in any way affect the theme.

    I would venture to say that it is more of a reflection of bad Skips and less of a reflection of a bad ride. I also pose this question... IF they make a change and it's popularity wanes, then what? I offer Nemo and Rocket Rods as examples of what can happen with tampering.

    To put it as succinctly as possible, no.

    To elaborate a bit, I think that's possibly the worst idea ever. It even trumps Light TrMagic.

    They also have a jungle in Adventureland in Paris, it just doesn't have a Jungle Cruise.
