Walt Disney Imagineering has surprised Disney fans with an early Christmas present: The Jingle Cruise.

The classic Jungle Cruise Adventureland attraction will next month receive a holiday makeover at both the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World as well as Disneyland, adding a new seasonal storyline with plenty of gags.

As the new story goes, “Skippers have grown homesick for the holidays, so they’ve added holiday cheer to the Jungle Cruise queue and boathouse with decorations that have been mailed to them from home (plus a few they’ve created themselves).” Naturally, new themed jokes will replace the old ones, along with a special radio broadcast and new boat names.

The Jingle Cruise begins at Walt Disney World on November 8, followed by Disneyland on November 12.
