You Can Pay $75 To Ride The Jungle Cruise First in Disneyland

Here comes Disney again with yet another upcharge. This time, if you have already paid for your D23 membership, you can pay another $75 to get access to the new version of the Jungle Cruise too.

Those that were “Lucky” enough to get the tickets will get an ” incredible sunrise adventure as they get to hear inside stories from Walt Disney Imagineering and be among the first to experience the “gnu” enhancements to the world-famous Jungle Cruise at Disneyland Park on its official reopening day Friday, July 16!

Here’s the schedule of events:

“This early morning begins as D23 Gold Members enter the gates of Disneyland Park before the park opens to the general public. Upon arrival, you’ll be outfitted with your own skipper hat and VIP credential as you begin our Adventureland expedition at the Tropical Hideaway.

With the wilds of the jungle as your backdrop, you‘ll enjoy some morning delicacies such as a Loco Moco Bao, Sweet Lumpia, Coffee, bottled juices, and water—and, of course, it’s never too early for a Dole Whip!

Then our master of ceremonies, D23 Team Member (and former Jungle Cruise Skipper) Justin Arthur, will get things going with a special panel of creative talent from Walt Disney Imagineering as they take us on a deep dive into the history and re-imagining of the beloved attraction. From its origins back to Walt Disney and opening day, to its long legacy of skippers, global adventures, and the latest sights on the legendary river banks, we’ll celebrate it all just in time for the attraction’s 66th anniversary!

Then the Jungle awaits! Making your way through the boathouse, you’ll board your explorer launch as your skipper (armed with the latest puns) will take you down the rivers of adventure to be among the first on the official re-opening day to see all the “gnu” sights to be discovered!

In addition to a skipper hat and credential, guests will be treated to a few other commemorative surprises!
