    Very cool. Hope this is something we can expect here in Orlando.

    Enhancements like this would be great here in the states. Especially the nighttime effects. Usually the Jungle Cruise is close to empty at night in Disneyland.

    Is it just me or is it really odd to hear The Lion King theme when they round the corner and see lions feasting on a zebra? :)
