Good morning, my friends! How are things out in your personal slice of the “Disney-verse”? I hope all is well.
As I’ve mentioned in the past, one of the All in WDW family’s overall favorite WDW attractions is the Jungle Cruise. When I run a Favorite Attractions poll, it always gets our votes.
Sadly, however, it never seems to get quite as much love as other Magic Kingdom icons – such as Haunted Mansion, Splash Mountain, and Pirates of the Caribbean.
In fact, where that trio finished 2016 as the All in WDW Readers’ Favorite Top 3 Attractions in all of Walt Disney World, poor Jungle Cruise only mustered a 12th Place finish in our Magic Kingdom “competition”. Very sad.

It makes us very happy that Disney, themselves, has paid some additional homage to Jungle Cruise in recent years – with the opening of Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto in the Polynesian Resort as well as Skipper Canteen in the Magic Kingdom, itself.
Anyway, I thought we could spend a brief bit of time today sending a little bit of love the cruise’s way with a tiny dose of trivia! How well do you know the Jungle Cruise? Let’s see!
