I love the corny jokes. It is fun. I am comparing to Disneyland and I like how you go inside the building. I like it better at night. It seems more magical.

We almost died several times... from the horrible puns. It's a fun experience that's different every time you go thanks to the jokes being made up on the fly.

Another must do because of its classic nature. Be nice to the boat captain...their half of the show!

The Christmas version of the cruise was especially fun. Theming was excellent. A classic Disney attraction that never gets old.

This is a great, classic Walt attraction. It is awesome when you get a really dry sense of humored skipper!
MissyMouse70 gave this a rating of 10 on 06/18/2016 at 9:37:49 pm EDT
This is a Disney classic. The corny jokes makes this an enjoyable ride. I think I might know the Captain's script by heart.
scott disney dad gave this a rating of 8 on 06/18/2016 at 5:01:59 pm EDT
This is an original ride, that one should see at least once. Lines can be long, but Fass Pass helps with this. We love the scenery, and the jokes are corny, but much appreciated! We love the water rides at Disney, and the animals in the scenery make you feel like you are on a Jungle Safari!
JKDenn gave this a rating of 10 on 06/17/2016 at 3:27:37 pm EDT
Classic, not my favorite but I go on about every third trip.
Papa Jim gave this a rating of 6 on 06/17/2016 at 2:43:42 pm EDT
If you have children, they will appreciate this ride as well as the 'comedy' provided by your boat captain. As it is one of the original attractions, it is a bit tired. I rode this the first few times at WDW but have since started to pass it by in favor of other rides.
Missi gave this a rating of 5 on 06/17/2016 at 12:39:23 pm EDT
Bad puns and one liners are the theme of the day for this ride. So bad they're good!!
chelynnah gave this a rating of 9 on 06/17/2016 at 12:23:26 pm EDT
Worn out but still nostalgic... so much depends on the quality delivery from the boat captain. Sweet to catch this on way out of park at night.
Cannibalking525 gave this a rating of 7 on 06/17/2016 at 9:54:22 am EDT
It's a classic. The jokes never get old, but the ride has to be taken in the corny spirit in which it is intended. We always ride it at least once. A second time after dark can be a totally different experience.

Skipped it for many years in a row and then decided to try again just to see if it had improved but still was very boring and a complete waste of time.

One of our favorites! Classic ride! Love to ride multiple times to hear different corny jokes! The only downside is that the wait is usually really long, slow moving, and hot.

Just the best of old Disney! And if you get to steer the boat, look out! My 9 year old daughter still has no idea the it is on a track, and she brings her driver's license to the park. That's a magic I don't want to end!
lisasport gave this a rating of 7 on 05/30/2016 at 1:07:23 pm EDT
Cute ride if the line isn't too long. All depends on the personality of your Skipper as to how good the experience is.
