Is Jungle Jammin’ Parade at Animal Kingdom Ending?

Mickey’s Jammin’ Jungle Parade at Disney’s Animal Kingdom will be coming to an end sometime this June according to Disney spokespeople, but will its retirement be permanent?

Will a new parade be coming to Animal Kingdom in its stead?

The reason for the parade’s disappearance this summer seems straightforward enough.

Avatar Expansion

Work on Animal Kingdom’s Avatar expansion, which will recreate the world of Pandora from James Cameron’s hit 2009 film, will soon impede the parade path and viewing area for guests.

What remains unclear, however, is if the Jammin’ Jungle Parade will return after work on Pandora is complete.

Rivers of Light

As of now, all signs point to ‘no’ with news already swirling that Animal Kingdom will be introducing new entertainment, including a nighttime entertainment show called “Rivers of Light” – an outdoor spectacular on Discovery River which will feature live music, floating lantern, water screens, and animal imagery!

According to a Disney spokeswoman, there are no plans for a new parade at this time with Animal Kingdom’s efforts very much directed toward the completion of Pandora and introduction of “Rivers of Light”.

Mickey’s Jammin’ Jungle Parade has been Animal Kingdom’s daily parade for more than a decade, first opening in October 2001.

Featuring unique and colorful animal floats, dancers, stilt-walkers, and Disney characters decked out in their safari gear, the parade proved a hit with Animal Kingdom guests.

Fans of the parade or guests who’ve never seen it before and will be visiting Animal Kingdom this summer should be sure not to miss it!
