Mickey's Jammin Jungle Parade
Mickey's Jammin' Jungle Parade opened October 1, 2001 as part of the 100 Years of Magic Celebration. It currently runs each afternoon (time varies but usually one hour or so before park closing). The parade lasts 15 minutes (approximately). Starts at the Tusker House Gate at Harambe Village. It winds through Disney’s Animal Kingdom and returns to the Tusker House Gate. With all the sights and sounds of an outrageous island street party, Disney characters have come to town on expedition with a wild, whimsical, larger-than-life tribute to their animal friends. As “Mickey’s Jammin’ Jungle” winds through the park, a menagerie of abstract animal images comes to life in fun, theatrical designs handcrafted from an eclectic mix of natural materials and fabrics. Soaring animated puppets and towering percussive drum sculptures create bursts of living color against Disney’s Animal Kingdom’s dense jungle greenery. Elaborate rickshaw taxis put selected guests in the middle of the parade, accompanied by Disney characters in customized musical safari vehicles. A troupe of 8-foot-tall Party Animals and energetic Party Patrols interact with guests and direct them in the creation of the live call-and-response sing-along music fest. Up to 25 spectators will be selected daily to ride in the opening unit, three guest rickshaws and the finale unit. Guests will be given Kodak disposable cameras so they can capture the special moment aboard the parade.
