Welcome to April’s Movie Munchies: The Jungle Cruise. We are a new group of Film Loving Foodies. We all watch the same movie during the month, create a recipe inspired by the movie and post about it on your blog and/or Instagram.  It is a lot of fun and anyone is welcome to join.  You can find out more on our Facebook page

For the month of April we will be working on recipes inspired by the live action Disney movie The Jungle Cruise. This is a fun movie, especially if you are a fan of The Jungle Cruise ride at the Disney parks. I grew up going to Disneyland and The Jungle Cruise has always been a favorite. If you’ve been to the parks and gone on the ride, then you know about the jokes that are all part of the experience and for me, that was the best part of this movie. It’s a good movie, full of adventure, but the references are what makes it great.

The movie synopsis per Disney,

Join fan favorites Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt for the adventure of a lifetime on Disney’s Jungle Cruise, a rollicking thrill-ride down the Amazon with wisecracking skipper Frank Wolff and intrepid researcher Dr. Lily Houghton. Lily travels from London, England to the Amazon jungle and enlists Frank’s questionable services to guide her downriver on La Quila—his ramshackle-but-charming boat. Lily is determined to uncover an ancient tree with unparalleled healing abilities—possessing the power to change the future of medicine. Thrust on this epic quest together, the unlikely duo encounters innumerable dangers and supernatural forces, all lurking in the deceptive beauty of the lush rainforest. But as the secrets of the lost tree unfold, the stakes reach even higher for Lily and Frank and their fate—and mankind’s—hangs in the balance.

There is a little food inspiration in the movie and I think we can let the location and characters inspire us as well. I hope everyone will enjoy watching and I cannot wait to see what you all come up with for recipes.

If you like, enjoy the sounds of the ride with this video sharing Disneyland’s Jungle Cruise music loop. I find this helps put me in the mood for creative recipe development. Enjoy!


I have done a number of recipes in the past with an Adventureland theme. Hopefully this will give you some starting ideas and a jumping off point.

When you finish watching the film please let me know by leaving a link to your review and recipe on the event page by April 28. I will be posting a round up of the links on April 30.
