Here’s a video of the sinking boat, as Disney crew members help to evacuate passengers, who are standing in waist deep water.
Disney Jungle Cruise passenger Matthew Vince shared images of the sinking ship on Twitter. It’s 61 degrees in Orlando, Florida, where the Disney theme park is located. The images show passengers wearing jackets and a scarf while standing in water up to their ankles. Given the chilly temperatures, Disney World guests were probably not looking for a reason to cool off today.
Vince wrote, “Our boat on the jungle cruise sank today. Fun times!”
