Don’t judge me but I never really liked the The Jungle Cruise ride until I had kids. Now, it’s one of our favorite rides at Disneyland because the line is usually short and when we get off we head to Tropical Hideaway for Raspberry Dole Whip! In July of this year Disney will release the Jungle Cruise movie starring Emily Blunt and the Rock. If you haven’t experienced the thrilling movie trailer check it out below!
This Jungle Cruise popcorn party mix is a perfect way to celebrate the release of the movie! It’s the tasty mix of sweetness and saltiness and combines the theme colors of the movie!
