Jungle Cruise Scenes To Be Rewritten Due To Cultural Insensitivities

[WDW] Disney has announced it will making changes and rewriting many scenes for the Jungle Cruise attraction, due to the company`s inclusion initiative.


Disney has announced it will making changes and rewriting some scenes for the Jungle Cruise attraction at the Magic Kingdom. In the same way they are changing the theme of Splash Mountain to Princess and the Frog. The primary reason for the upcoming Jungle Cruise change is because of the The Walt Disney Company's "inclusion initiative".
We are constantly evaluating ways to enhance attractions and experiences in our parks. We want to make sure everybody has the best time--that guests from all over the world can connect with the stories we share and that how we bring those to life are respectful of the diverse world we live in. And when they get off the attraction, they know that we have done our homework because these are the details that matter.

When you look at the Jungle Cruise, as it is today, there are just a couple of scenes that don’t do that and needed a refresh. But I want to make sure people know we are not changing the whole Jungle Cruise. This is not a re-envisioning of the entire attraction. It’s the Jungle Cruise you know and love, with the skippers still leading the way, and at the same time, we’re addressing the negative depictions of “natives.” So that’s one of the scenes we’re going to go in and change.
