The Jungle Cruise[edit | edit source]
Livingston is mentioned by Albert Awol in the queue for the Magic Kingdom's Jungle Cruise. He is mentioned as being in the vicinity of a Jungle Navigation Company base and being requested to meet with Sir Morton Stanley at Schweitzer Falls. While attempting to decipher Stanley's poor calligraphy, Albert Awol says, "-Dr. Livingston I presume?".
Dr. Livingstone made frequent appearances at Adventureland in Disneyland Paris, often in the restaurant back when it was called 'The Explorers Club'. He was portrayed by Theo Fraser Steele.
Sunkist I Presume[edit | edit source]
There used to be a dining area in Disneyland's Adventureland called, "Sunkist I presume" which had a name referencing the famous greeting made to Dr. Livingston. Along with this, the sign for the service had an illustration of Livingstone and Sir Stanley enjoying orange-juice together. In the 1990s, this restaurant was replaced with Bengal Barbecue.
Connections[edit | edit source]
A Jungle Navigation Company employee named Jermy Livingstone is mentioned within this text.
This Adventureland restaurant serves a Dole Whip called, "Dole Whip, I Presume".
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Both Stanley and Livingston appear to have survived longer in the Disney park mythos than their historic counterparts given their being referenced c. 1938 in the Jungle Cruise.
