Disneyland's Jungle Cruise Offers $300 Breakfast Experience
If you're a morning person who has $300 to blow and an appetite for eggs and horrible jungle puns as chaser, Disneyland has just the thing for you. The Jungle Cruise (soon to be a movie with The Rock hopefully cracking jokes about the backside of water) is hosting a special Jungle Cruise Sunrise Safari Breakfast. The event officially started yesterday and lasts until December 2.
Reservations are going fast and here's how its described in the Disneyland Park Dining reservation website:
Dine amidst the flora and fauna as the sun rises over the world-famous Jungle Cruise in Adventureland.
Becoming a Jungle Cruise skipper is no easy task. It takes years of training and practice--or at least a boat and a megaphone. In the interest of grooming our newest batch of recruits--totally unrelated to rumors of skippers joining the local tribe of headhunters--we invite you to our Sunrise Safari Breakfast Adventure.
As your journey begins, you'll meet your safari guide and make your way into the African savannah. There you'll dine on a wild assortment of unique breakfast favorites inspired by the jungle diet of the rare "brunching tiger," including fresh pastries, exotic fruit & chia parfaits, eggs, glazed pork belly bacon, pan-seared sausage and roasted gold potato & onion hash along with an assortment of juices, freshly brewed coffee and specialty teas.
After your feast is finished, your guide will escort you back to civilization in time for a private ride on the Jungle Cruise to hone your skipper skills before the park opens to the public.
To certify these brave explorers as officially unofficial Jungle Cruise skippers, each Guest will receive a special Tribal Mask keepsake to commemorate their adventure.
Apart from the cost, which is a cool $300 per person, there's other caveats. You pay for the meal upfront when your make your reservation. Disneyland Park admission is not included in the tour price and at the end of the meal (which begins bright and early at 5:30 a.m. or 6:30 a.m.), you'll be escorted out of the park. If you actually have a park ticket or Annual Passport, you'll be allowed to reenter once the park opens.
And if you think "That's a ridiculous price! Who'd pay for that?", the answer is plenty of people. The few spots that are left are only on weekdays.
