Staghorn Ferns On Disney's Jungle Cruise in Adventureland - March 2022
We recently rode the Jungle Cruise in Adventureland in the Magic Kingdom and being all-in on Staghorn Ferns lately, it was a lovely surprise when I spotted a couple of them attached to tree trunks near the beginning of the ride. I've looked at a bunch of POV videos on YouTube, but can't seem to find a clear look at the ferns and I wasn't able to whip my phone out fast enough to capture them. But, trust me...they're there. Once you leave the dock, look to the right side on a few of the bare palm tree trunks - about six-or-so-feet high from the waterline, you'll see a couple of Staghorn Ferns.
Although there isn't a similar site for Walt Disney World, the folks at Plants of Disneyland have documented four different Staghorn Ferns in Disneyland. You can see the listing page here - screenshot below.

I'll be sure to have my phone out the NEXT TIME that we board the cruise.
