Ahead of the release of one of the biggest summer films, Jungle Cruise, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has been going around the country doing press for the exciting new movie. The film is set to premiere at Disneyland Park on July 24, but the actor made an early trip down to the Happiest Place on Earth and brought along his mobile tequila truck.
That right, you read that correctly — his mobile tequila truck. Dwayne Johnson has his own tequila brand, Teremana Tequila, and decided to give Disney fans a free taste of the delicious adult beverage. The truck pulled up outside of Tortilla Jo’s in Downtown Disney and a limited number of fans were given tickets and bracelets for their free samples. Even though the tasting was limited, the number of people given access to Downtown Disney was not, and boy did they show up in droves!
Even the Mana Mobile — the name of the traveling tequila truck — shared a video of all of the fans who showed up, excited to try tequila and see The Rock himself.

While fans crowded the Downtown Disney area, only a limited number were given tickets to try a piece of French toast and a shot of tequila — quite the combo! Instagram user and theme park blogger Disney Hype Beast shared a picture of their wristband and a little more information on the event.
@therock Mana Mobile is here at Downtown Disney between @tortillajos and @splitsville.anaheim. They are giving out wristbands and 2 tickets right now. The tickets are for a sample of the French Toast and a shot of tequila from @teremana. The event will start at 1pm today.
Jungle Cruise will premiere tomorrow at Disneyland Resort and preparations have been underway for days. Guests visiting Disneyland on July 24 should be aware that there will be no nighttime fireworks show and some rides and areas will be modifying operations — including ToonTown, Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room, and, of course, the Jungle Cruise, the ride that inspired the movie.
While the world-famous Jungle Cruise inspired the movie, it is sure to create its own fun spin — much like Pirates of the Caribbean. Here is the film’s official description from Disney:
Join fan favorites Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt for the adventure of a lifetime on Disney’s Jungle Cruise, a rollicking thrill-ride down the Amazon with wisecracking skipper Frank Wolff and intrepid researcher Dr. Lily Houghton. Lily travels from London, England to the Amazon jungle and enlists Frank’s questionable services to guide her downriver on La Quila—his ramshackle-but-charming boat. Lily is determined to uncover an ancient tree with unparalleled healing abilities—possessing the power to change the future of medicine. Thrust on this epic quest together, the unlikely duo encounters innumerable dangers and supernatural forces, all lurking in the deceptive beauty of the lush rainforest. But as the secrets of the lost tree unfold, the stakes reach even higher for Lily and Frank and their fate—and mankind’s—hangs in the balance.
If seeing The Rock in person wasn’t exciting enough, Emily Blunt also made an appearance in support of her costar.
