The Jungle Cruise, October 1960
Let's celebrate one of Disneyland's most famous attractions, The Jungle Cruise. Much of the success is due to the talents of the Skippers. Why else would guests choose to ride it over and over again, when the scenes rarely change?
First shot was taken as the boat is leaving the dock. The second shot gives me the willies; Indiana Jones & I have a fear of snakes in common!
I do not believe these Rhinos are in this attraction anymore; hopefully they are happy and well-fed somewhere else now.
And the native...I just love these guys. The Skippers always have a good gag or two for them.
Today's post ends with two shots from my October 1960 batch of what I "assume" (please note the quotations) to be an Orange County motel. Any of you experts out there able to identify it? I guess it could be the Disneyland Hotel, but for some reason I kind of doubt it.
