Disneyland Debuts New Jungle Cruise Breakfast Experience–You Get to Drive the Boat

Disneyland has announced the new “Jungle Cruise Sunrise Safari” experience which will debut on September 21 and continue until December 2nd. In this new morning special tour, guests will be served breakfast and then given a crash course in Jungle Skipper training. Then they will get to pilot their own boat through the jungle.

The breakfast will include “an assortment of fresh pastries and scones, exotic fruit and chia parfait, eggs cooked to perfection, glazed pork belly bacon, pan-seared sausage and roasted golden potato-and-onion hash.”  Also included will be a variety of juices and warm beverages.

But, guests won't be doing this experience for the food. When else can you pilot your own Jungle Cruise boat? They will be taught some special Jungle Skipper lessons before they are put behind the wheel of their own boat to recite the famous Jungle Cruise spiel.

Then, let's add one more thing Disney fans love–souvenirs. At the conclusion of the experience guests will be given an exclusive collectable tribal mask based off of the original concept art for the Jungle Cruise Attraction.

Now, guess the price with me…..I was actually surprised to find that this entire experience will only cost you $300. Spots are booking up fast, so go take a look at the official booking page for information on availability.

Now here's my only question, do guests get to fire the gun?
