BACKSTORY (July 17, 1955–Present): Welcome to photo page 2 for Disneyland's Jungle Cruise attraction located in Adventureland. Picking up where we left off on Page 1, you'll find yourself "entering banana territory" at the Safari Outpost, then following your boat all the way from Schweitzer Falls to the Trapped Safari in the African Veldt. Page 3 will finish out your photo-journey of The Jungle Cruise. Be sure to keep your arms and hands inside the boat!
“Folks–we’re entering banana territory, better keep your eyes peeled. A botanist told me that the bamboo you see here can grow to be six stories tall. I think it’s seven. But that’s another story. What is this up ahead? Ah…a safari camp with a ew uninvited guests. The last time I passed through, those gorillas were having a problem getting that jeep to start. Looks like they finally got it to turn over.”
“Well, will you look at that- some of the camp’s food made it downstream. But I don't think it’s going to waste.”
“And now, we’re approaching beautiful Schweitzer Falls, named after that famous doctor and humanitarian, Dr. Albert Falls.”
“On the left bank–the enormous ears and huge tusks tell us that’s an African Bush Elephant, the world’s largest land animal, and for those of you with short memories–there on the right bank–the enormous ears and huge tusks tell us that’s an African Bush Elephant, the world’s largest land animal.”
“We’re now entering the great African Veldt. And it looks like there’s something up here…Oh look. Isn’t that cute? That pride of lions is protecting that sleeping zebra. I don’t know about you, but to me that zebra looks ‘dead’ tired.”
“There’s that lost safari we’ve been hearing about. Obviously mixed up in some kind of uprising.”
