For the second year in a row, the Jungle Cruise in Adventureland at both Walt Disney World and Disneyland has a holiday overlay! Temporarily transforming into the "Jingle Cruise," the story goes that the Skippers are homesick for the holidays, so they've added holiday cheer to the Jungle Cruise queue and boathouse with decorations from home (plus a few they've created themselves). The Skippers have have new holiday jokes! Oh, and the Jungle Cruise boats have been temporarily renamed for the holidays. Listen carefully for the holiday radio broadcast in the background! The Jingle Cruise is open during daily park hours, as well as during Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Parties.

Disney pin collectors have another pin series to acquire, this time, attached to $75 Disney Gift Cards. Four pins, featuring Anna, Elsa, Kristoff and Olaf from Disney's animated feature "Frozen" are an added bonus for buying these gift cards, available at Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort. Will collectors keep the pins and give the cards? Or maybe they'll just spend it all while on vacation? It's probably too high a price to keep the cards "mint in box."

Q: What do our readers like best about PassPorter?

"The color pictures; fold out maps; elastic band; restaurant summaries and ratings; ... Just about everything. I bought this for our first ever trip to Disney World for our retirement trip and it was so nice to have a chance to do some advance planning since I knew absolutely nothing about Disney at that time. We have since been back six times. I buy this book for gifts for anyone going to Disney and they love it! "
