The ride that made a huge impression on me in Disneyland so many years ago was the Jungle Cruise. The memory of that ride lingered on and when I visited the island of Tortuguero in Costa Rica 4 years ago and had boat ride along the canals through the jungles I remembered that Jungle cruise ride on Disneyland. It was an incredible experience, so much so that I wanted to go to Disney’s Jungle Cruise ride again.
It took longer to realize the dream of going to Jungle Cruise again, but this summer in Florida I fulfilled that dream. The fact that the queue was kilometric told me that the ride is still very popular today as it was some 20 odd years ago.
When we finally got to ride it, the whole experience was a bit deflating. Do you know the saying: You cannot go back home again? Yes, it felt like it on this ride. I don’t know if it’s always been this short, but it felt really short to me this time around. After the ride my husband was telling me that my memory had probably played tricks on me. After all I was running on memories from about 20 years ago and I probably also romanticized the ride since it was my first time to ever been on one.
Anyway, it was still a fun ride, especially since the guide was incredibly funny throughout the ride.
