New Jungle Cruise “Chased Up A Pole” Scene Debuts Today at Walt Disney World


After months of Disney talking about it, we finally have the unveiling of the boating group chased up a pole scene.  It’s going to debut today on the Jungle Cruise attraction at Walt Disney World.

Walt Disney Imagineering posted the following on Instagram this morning:


Disney Imagineering Said:

We just wanted to POINT out the exciting progress Imagineering teams made last night on the #JungleCruise enhancements at @WaltDisneyWorld Resort! Starting today, Magic Kingdom Park guests aboard the attraction can meet our trapped safari of new characters, including Felix Penchman XIII, the Skipper who led this expedition up a tree! We are excited for guests to see them for themselves at @Disneyland when the Jungle Cruise reopens on July 16!

So now we can see the final version of the revised pole scene.

Here’s the original scenes (Images from Yesterdayland):

It’s basically the same thing, but now with more diversity.
