2. Jungle Cruise

Jungle Cruise was an opening day attraction, meaning it opened with the park on July 17th, 1955. The golden oldie takes you on a cruise through the WOODS. Just kidding, it's through the -  you guessed it - jungle. A "skipper" (an attractions cast member) leads your tour, pointing out the animatronic animals native to the area and delivering Disney-approved jokes. Although most Disney fans have been on the ride hundreds of times, they've never seen it like this before.

Nope, not scary at all...
