Walt Disney World is a place full of fun and laughter, and some of that laughter comes from jokes designed to appeal to children and adults alike. Some of those jokes are pretty corny, but they only get better with time. If you love jokes that make other people roll their eyes, you’ll love the attractions and shows on today’s list.
Here are six things to do in Walt Disney World if you love corny humor.
1. Jungle Cruise
You can’t talk about corny humor in Walt Disney World without mentioning the world-famous Jungle Cruise, which would be nothing without its brilliant, hilarious skippers. While some of the corny jokes are the same every time, others vary depending on your skipper, making for great re-rideability. Plus, if you’re a good listener, you can catch some great jokes on the radio playing in the queue area. Here’s one of the classics:
Ladies and gentlemen, your attention, please. Would the party that lost the roll of 50 $20 bills, wrapped in a red rubber band, please report to the turnstile … we have good news for you. We found your rubber band.
2. Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue
I’ve never actually gotten to see Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort, but the Disney website describes it as an “old-fashioned dinner show that includes foot-stompin’ music, nostalgic comedy and an all-you-care-to-eat dinner.” You’ll enjoy a wide variety of bear-related puns that might only be rivaled by…
3. Country Bear Jamboree
As I mentioned in my post on bears, Country Bear Jamboree is corny but fun. Besides the humorous songs, you’ll see punny faux advertisements such as “Corsets: Cinch like a bear-hug.”
4. The Haunted Mansion Tombstones
If you prefer your humor to rhyme, you’ll love the tombstones outside of The Haunted Mansion. I haven’t had a chance to see the new interactive queue, but it promises even more corny fun. I’m not sure if it’s still there anymore, but as a child my favorite epitaph was “Here Lies Good Old Fred: A Great Big Rock Fell On His Head.”
5. Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor
Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor is all about collecting enough laughter to power Monstropolis, and that means lots of jokes. The best part is that you can submit your own corny jokes for possible inclusion in the show. Just follow the instructions posted in the queue.
6. Muppet*Vision 3-D
Anything involving Fozzie Bear must also include bad jokes, and Muppet*Vision 3-D is no exception. As I described in my post on the Muppets, this attraction is full of delightful, hilarious details. Wocka wocka wocka!

Your humorous day in Disney World will include two parks and a dinner show. Make sure to make your advanced dining reservations for Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue before your trip. I’d suggest starting your day in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, where you’ll enjoy Muppet*Vision 3-D. Then head to Magic Kingdom. Of the attractions on the list, Jungle Cruise will probably have the longest queue. You could get a FASTPASS, but remember the longer you stand in line, the more jokes you’ll hear in the queue area. After Jungle Cruise, head to The Haunted Mansion and take your time reading the tombstones. Then go see Country Bear Jamboree and Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor. When you’re finished in Magic Kingdom, you can take a boat over to Fort Wilderness for Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue.
