The Magdalena Maiden is a boat from the Jungle Cruise.


The Magdalena Maiden was a boat used by the Jungle Navigation Company. She was wrecked in the August 16th of 1935 when she ran afoul of several rocks somewhere near Schweitzer Falls.

Development History[]

The Magdalena Maiden was one of the Disneyland Jungle Cruise's original boats but was decommissioned in 1997 along with the Mekong Maiden. This was due to the boats of the attraction being replaced for more heavily themed vehicles made to look authentic to the setting as opposed to the clean and somewhat campy designs of the original boats.

Appearances and allusions[]

Adventure Trading Company[]

An article in the Daily Gnus by Skip Documentary has an article on the disappearance of the Magdalena Maiden and Mekong Maiden. It is brought up that no JNC employees are reported missing nor have commented on the disappearance of the boats but that there are large amounts of patchwork and damage near the docks of the Jungle Cruise's boathouse likely connected.
