Why Disneyland turned the Jungle Cruise river pink

The jokes wrote themselves this week when the Jungle Cruise water turned pink and wannabe skippers took to social media to unleash their funniest one-liners at the expense of the pun-filled Disneyland boat ride along the rivers of the world.

Was it a gender reveal party? Did the piranhas finally attack a boat? Did a skipper actually shoot a hippo? Is the Jungle Cruise now sponsored by T-Mobile? Did Moses turn the Nile to blood? Have Flora and Merryweather reignited their rivalry?

Select locations at Disneyland underwent water treatment on Monday, July 18 that resulted in the water turning a purple/pink tint, according to Disneyland officials.

No Disneyland guests rode on the Jungle Cruise attraction during the temporary water treatment process, according to Disneyland officials.

The Jungle Cruise was closed for a short period of time on Monday as part of a standard water treatment process used to treat bodies of water throughout the Disneyland resort. The pink waters dissipated within a few hours and the attraction returned to normal operation later in the day.

Disneyland video blog Fresh Baked posted photos on Twitter of the pink-tinted Jungle Cruise river — igniting an onslaught of comedic puns in the comments section.

The Jungle Cruise river turned pink around 3 p.m. on Monday at the Anaheim theme park, according to social media commenters.
