    Dear Noob Navigator,

    I'm sure there are plenty rip-offs and rides that are very similar to our beloved Jungle Cruise. However, the ones I know of are no more. There was once a theme park in Japan called Nara Dreamland, and was pretty much a clone of the Magic Kingdom gone horribly wrong. It had a train station in the front, a castle, a Matterhorn, a skyway that goes through the mountain, a couple coasters, a monorail, an autopia, and yes, even a Jungle Cruise. Unfortunately for this park, it closed perminantly in 2006, so there's no need to toss it to the natives.

    Dear Skipper,

    What's the best way to make sure my son is picked to "steer" the boat on his first Jungle Cruise experience next month?

    Sometimes all you need is a reminder that out there lies a better place... a better world... a Walt Disney World.

    Dear Skipper,
    How long do you train on JC before you are let loose on the public? With all the schtick you do, I think it would be hard to memorize quickly.

    Thanks Pygy. Forgot about Nara. It was actually a pretty darn good rip of Disneyland from the early 60's I believe. It is sad to see it abandoned.
    Here are some pictures from a couple of years ago. Reminds me of
    the sad River Country.

    Anywhere between just a mere 5 days to a regular work week. Also, we were never let loose, just found a clever way to escape from the clutches of our trainers and handlers, or at least that's what I did
