Native Uprising on the Jungle Cruise
Publicity photograph of the native uprising during the Jungle Cruise. I believe this image is from 1955 or 1956 based upon the caption. The caption on the back of the photograph reads: Spear upraised to "attack" Disneyland jungle explorers, a tall Watusi warrior "threatens" a passing boat along the Rivers of the World in Adventureland. This true-life safari into deepest Asia and Africa is complete with huge hippos and alligators charging the jungle craft, trumpeting elephants, lions, tigers, tall giraffe and other jungle dwellers-- designed especially for the stay-at-home big game hunter.
