Night Rider

Magic Kingdom takes on a whole new vibe at night, and many attractions become new experiences. The Mature Mouse™ is planning a few evenings in this park on his next trip. How do you prefer to experience Magic Kingdom, during the day or in the evening? What is your favorite attraction to ride at night? Have you ever used extra magic hours to stay late in the parks?

I started planning my next Disney World Vacation by calling Jennie Nowers. When the Cool Summer Savings were released, Jennie was up early applying these savings to my trip, which saved me 15% on the price of my resort stay. I did not need to do a thing. Tell her that The Mature Mouse™ sent you and receive a special gift from Jennie with your next booking.

Please visit The Mature Mouse™ store for logo merchandise. Many of the items would make outstanding additions to your vacation gear and attire.


Many people are familiar with the Jungle Cruise in the Magic Kingdom. It’s a classic attraction, one of the oldest rides in the park, and it’s well known for its (obviously) animatronic animals and the skipper’s playful pun-filled patter. It’s bright, it’s cheerful, and it’s funny, from the smiling elephant playing in the water to the happy tribesman trying to sell you shrunken heads.

At night, though, Jungle Cruise turns into something a bit… creepier. There’s very little man-made lighting on the ride, so once the sun goes down the jungle becomes much darker and your visibility into the trees is cut way down. Animals are hidden in shadows, sometimes harder to see until you’re right next to them, and some of the details can be lost in the dark. As a result they can look much less (charmingly) fake, and even that goofy tribesman becomes a bit more menacing.
