At Disneyland- Jungle Cruise by TwilightFlopple At Disneyland- Jungle Cruise by TwilightFlopple
Well this was fun! Usually I do lot of geometric shapes (shop interiors, etc) in my pony art, but the organic nature of the Jungle Cruise's foliage was a lot of fun to here, and quite easy.. it's all just simple brush strokes.

After using all of the Mane 6 and CMC except for Scootaloo and Fluttershy, I decided that the Enchanted Tiki Room would be ideal for Fluttershy, except for the fact that that last thing I wanted to do was try to draw the interior of the Tiki Room! If you've been, you know there's something like 100 "singing" birds in there. Jungle Cruise was pretty much the only other Disneyland option for "wild" animals to interact with, but the picture didn't really gel until I realized I could add Daring Do into the mix. Dr. Whooves is included at the request of :iconemperor-spike:, who participated in an event on my Journal in July.

I spent some time contemplating the wisdom of depicting Flutters enthusiastically reaching for an obviously dangerous animal, but ultimately the picture was more interesting with some comedic threat. Don't worry, kids, the animals on the Jungle Cruise are plastic!

In retrospect it should have been a gaping Hippo, but the croc allowed me to pay tribute to the Haunted Mansion as well and is just funnier.

Fun fact: I worked on the Jungle Cruise in Florida for about eight years!

I wouldn't be doing that that close to Schweitzer Falls, if I were her.

I really like how you did the boat with the classic striped awnings. I kinda miss that from the actual ride.

yeah I wish they'd go with the striped awnings the next time they need to replace the boats.

Fluttershy will probably die one day from attempting to make friends with the wrong animal or at the wrong time.

I always thought that Daring Do would fit into the Indiana Jones ride at Disneyland. She is like a pony version of Indy after all.

There's no danger. Even if the alligator was real, Fluttershy would probably just befriend it.

Well, there's no true threat to Fluttershy falling out, seeing as she is a pegasus and can fly XD . And even if she forgets she can, Daring should can fly too~.

Careful Fluttershy, I don't think he's happy to see you in the same way you are him. :D

This looks great! I love the soft colors, as well as the way you drew the jungle and stones.

I have to say, I LOVE your Disney Parks/MLPFIM stuff! It combines two of my favorite things, and as a result is a winner in my book!

(Also, do you still remember all of the lines from Disney days? I get the feeling it's something that would stay with you for a while, whether you wanted it to or not!)

It was fun but it's really a lot of work and quite fatiguing. The hours are long, it's hot, and you have to always be "on". Of the rides I worked at, Jungle was far from my favorite.

BTW: The way you draw the ponies is adorable, I can't pinpoint why though. (maybe because of the detail you give to the eyes. That could be me though.)

And hey, be happy you didn't wind up flipping burgers for McDonald's at minimum wage.That isn't me, but it is a lot of people. Well, nice picture, it looks great, and I am excited to see more from you!

Would it be all right if you opened your mouth a bit, I just want to see if your teeth are okay, that is, if you want to...oh, thank you for being so cooperative, Mr. Crocodile! Ooh, they are taking good care of you! I'm so glad! I don't think I've ever seen healthier teeth in another reptile! Well, maybe except for my friend Spike, but that's because he claws so that he can brush his own teeth. Well, he's a baby dragon, and dragons are not strictly reptiles as they are in different taxonomic orders...Oh, am I rambling? I'm sorry, I tend to do that when I'm happy, especially when meeting new friends..."

As an aside, what kind of work did you do on the Jungle Cruise? Were you one of the guides or did you work more behind the scenes?

Slide all the way down now, all the way down towards me... keep sliding... keep sliding... this is how we keep the seats clean on this boat...

Hi, welcome to the Jungle Cruise - disappointing tourists since 1971 - and my name is Foxxy - disappointing the Walt Disney Company since 2003.

Okay, everybody turn around and wave goodbye to those people there on the dock... that's right, wave goodbye, wave goodbye.. come on, make it look good, they're never going to see us again!

...that probably answers your question. :)

That's awesome!
My favorite time on the Jungle Cruise was at Disneyland. At the part where the headhunters pop up out of the bushes, the skipper was just talking and talking to us with his back turned to them. Then he noticed us noticing the bouncing headhunters just as their motions were about to reset. He turned around and said 'No no guys... Were not the ones you want. You want the boat -behind- us." The robots all simultaneously turned left. "No no! Get down! They'll see you!" And they all started disappearing down behind the bushes. He was definitely one of the funniest skippers we'd ever had. :)
