Mickey's Jammin' Jungle Parade


Mickey's Jammin' Jungle Parade is the afternoon entertainment offering at the Animal Kingdom. Large floats bear the usual Disney characters, separated by stilt walkers, walking characters and dancers, and several human-powered animal floats. The music is upbeat and loud.


Mickey's Jammin' Jungle Parade replaced the March of the ARTimals in October 2001. The March of the ARTimals had been shelved since July 1999. It was originally billed as "interactive street party" but is by now a more traditional parade.


Mickey's Jammin' Jungle Parade is an enjoyable experience for the first few viewings, especially if you are a fan of the Disney afternoon parades in general. The animal floats, most of which are self-powered, are fascinating to see in motion. Disney has added enough characters, including the Br'er animals from Song of the South, to keep the youngest set happy. In all, the parade has a Carnaval feel to it, which is a bit odd since the park doesn't have much from South America.

Touring Tips

  • If you miss the parade coming out of Africa, just wait twenty minutes. It will loop around Discovery Island and return to Africa, with a lot fewer people watching.
  • A few good spots to see the parade: near the bridge to Dinoland (a nice head-on view of the parade), just past Flights of Wonder (spaces are usually the last to get filled), and in front of Tusker House (see tip above).
