Mickey's Jingle Jungle Parade

Last week Mickey's Jammin' Jungle Parade was switched up for Christmas and now called the Jingle Jungle Parade. The parade jeeps and characters are the same, but dressed up for the Holidays. The parade is preformed at 3:45 pm daily and starts in Africa by Kilimanjaro safaris and goes around the tree of life.

Minnie's safari jeep smells like marshmallows / hot cocoa, and checkout the naughty and nice list on the side of Santa Goofy's jeep.

If you are in no rush but want to see the parade a great viewing spot is in Africa. The parade comes back to Africa once it circles the tree. By this time (around 4:15) most of the crowds would have followed the parade to get to the exit.

Here is the regular version of the parade.
