It’s just amazing to me that racism, inciting violence, and sexual assault weren’t enough for Bob to make this decision. It took “going against the entire premise of Disney’s Animal Kingdom, right after we touted that vision of conservation and caring for the world as the reason for Pandora,” for Bob to see the that the light.
But hey, at least he saw it eventually. He was slow on the uptake, but at least he got it…in the end.
(That last statement and the accompanying photoshop made with @enkblogs – and other Jungle Cruise fans – in mind).
This fantastic concept for the entrance to Jungle Cruise by Disney Legend Marc Davis wonderfully sets the stage for one of Disney’s most classic theme park attractions. Inspired by The African Queen and a True-Life Adventure documentary, Jungle Cruise takes guests down various rivers of the world via steamer boats, past wildlife, exotic flora, and, of course, the “Backside of Water.” Whether it’s the cringeworthy skippers with unlimited puns, or the atmosphere of intrigue and adventure, this opening-day attraction continues to delight guests to this day.

Once I committed to our Disney partners to make the movie based off the
JUNGLE CRUISE ride, I wanted to dive head first into the research. So I headed to Walt Disney World and surprised tourists by commandeering the JUNGLE CRUISE boat. It
was a GREAT day on the river. Learned a lot.. for example, it takes
approximately 12.6 minutes for all the passengers to get over the shock
of me jumping on the boat and thinking I’m a DJ look-a-like. One
passenger even said, “Oh the real Rock is much smaller than this guy”. I
threw his ass off the boat. Jokes aside (and yes, with me as the
Cruise Skipper there will be an abundance of puns) this is such an
amazing, fantastical and cool world to build out. Best part about this
surprise research day was knowing how FUN of an experience we’re gonna
work hard to create for families around the world. That’s the part that
gets my excited the most. The movie. The ride. The experience. It’s the cruise of a lifetime. And trust me, you’ll want me as your Skipper. Just don’t forget to bring the Skipper’s beer. Next step… we find our visionary director. #SurpriseAroundEveryCorner#ResearchDay#DisneyWorld#AllAboard#JungleCruise

Returning to Civilization on the Jungle Cruise - May, 2017 by Bob Rowan Via Flickr: The scariest part of your Jungle Cruise may be the return to civilization, but it can also be one of the best views in the Magic Kingdom. I’d stay and enjoy it more if someone didn’t tell me to get out of the bote.
