Jungle Navigation Co., LTD.

The tongue-in-cheek humor of the Jungle Cruise in Disney World's Magic Kingdom extends beyond the various boat skippers and their infamous bad joke-filled narrations. Dock elements reveal that the Jungle Cruise boats belong to the Jungle Navigation Co., LTD. which seems to have a rich history of ineptitude. According to postings on the dock, the company is currently seeking the whereabouts of eleven missing boats and nine lost individuals.


While waiting to begin your "exotic expedition," check out the various company-related signs and postings. Offers of Free Kittens, daily menus for the Crew Mess, and the Employee of the Month sign are just a few of the queue area's interesting, and sometimes hilarious details.

The faux-announcements and radio broadcasts that you hear while waiting at the dock are also filled with references to several memembers of the True Life Adventure films crew, such as Winston Hibler and James Algar.
