    Funny Jungle Cruise skipper

    Here's a video of a Jungle Cruise skipper, filmed in March 2007. She's one of the best skippers I've had. She made a lot of stale jokes fresh and added some new material I've never heard before.

    Check it out at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m4PpMzJk02k

    Enjoy!

    Re: Funny Jungle Cruise skipper

    Uh-oh! Remember the last time a good jungle cruise skipper
    was identified on-line. DL management doesn't like the ones
    who follow the hard fast rules of the scripted version ~ even
    though many a terrific skipper strayed from the "approved script",
    their cruising days are shortened.

    You many want to remove the link, in case the skipper is still
    in the jungle and wants to stay there. Before any DL mgmt
    sees it.

    Aww man..makes me want to go to WDW.

    That skipper did a lot of yelling...but she was enthusiastic, and it seemed like she was having fun, and the guests were having fun...which means as soon as management sees this video she's fired.

    Actually, she's at WDW, not DL. She's still employed at WDW the last I checked.

    That's because it was "Jungle Cruise: The Thrill Ride Version."

    She's really not straying from the script. I don't know anyone who would be annoyed by this.

    Re: Funny Jungle Cruise skipper

    It's good to know that she is not straying from the script,
    I would hate for her job to be in jeopardy by being available
    on youtube.

    I would still be reluctant about placing the video on youtube,
    just due to the negative consequences it has caused other
    cast members. Just looking out for their best interest.

    Personally, I would love to see many different Jungle Cruise
    Skippers tours on youtube ~ as it is one of my favorite attractions.
    But I do wonder if you asked the cast member if it would be
    ok to place a video of them on youtube. That was certainly a
    concern on previous similar topics.

    It shouldn't be. As a Cast Member on a spieling attraction (like the Jungle Cruise) you know that someone can be recording you, and that's just part of the job. Permission is not needed to post videos from attractions on you tube. The Cast Member knows what can or can't happen to them from the way they act on stage, and they know that they can be recorded at anytime by anyone.

    If it got a Cast Member in trouble in the past, they must have been going way out of their way to deliver a bad show. If that's not the case, then the management will be terminated.

    While this is true, I know that Florida cracks down on thier skippers a lot harder than DL used to...or at least used to anyway. I counted at least four non-SOP jokes, and one huge no-no for Florida skips.
