Are Changes Coming to Disney’s “Jungle Cruise” Ride?
We’ve learned that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will be starring in an upcoming film based on the Jungle Cruise ride at Disney Parks, and Dwayne has been sharing posts all over his Instagram about his excitement and what he’s learning.
Grateful SOB to have Walt and Mickey watching over my shoulder as @danygarciaco and I embark on this amazing project. For our big #JungleCruise creative meeting at DISNEY's highly secure R&D facilities, me and @danygarciaco were escorted into THE VAULT. A legitimate vault where all of Disney's biggest secrets and plans are kept. Curtains were pulled back for us to reveal the actual drawn up plans that Walt Disney had his brother, Roy Disney take to New York to present to the bankers in 1950 for the potential loan to build what's now known as Disney Land. Cant imagine what that meeting with bankers was like. Roy: Alright gentlemen, so me and my brother Walt, want to build the greatest multiple theme park attraction in the world. Banker: Oh that seems fun, Mr. Disney. Roy: *smiles in a playful mischievous manner, Oh yes my good man, it will have a few things that are in fact, fun. Well, clearly I don't know how the hell men were actually talking in the 50's, but what I do know is being able to star in and produce #JungleCruise is a dream come true. BUT what takes this to the next level, is that we'll partner with Disney's brilliant Imagineers to help re-engineer and re-design the #JungleCruise ride in all the Disney theme parks around the world. A very special opportunity for us and our @sevenbucksprod to create an unforgettable and fun EXPERIENCE for families around the world. And as Walt Disney himself would say… it's magical. Next step is finding our visionary director. Exciting times. #JungleCruise #TheExperience #DisneyStudios #Imagineers #SevenBucksProds #WaltAndRockWouldveBeenBesties #AndWorkoutBuddies #WaltWouldveLovedMyJackedUpPickUpTruck 😉🤙🏾
Over the weekend, Dwayne posted about how he was shown the original plans for the Jungle Cruise, but one part of his post caught our attention:

This statement sounds like they’ll be partnering with Disney Imagineers, and that changes and updates to the classic ride could be coming soon. We’re not sure what the changes would be, but Disney loves to keep redesigning their rides to keep with technology and always improve the experience for the guest.
We look forward to the film, and any changes that may arise for the ride!
