Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is a man of many talents and, clearly, likes to keep himself busy with massive project after massive project.  Seriously, he has more jobs and gigs going on at once than probably anyone else in Hollywood.

Recently, he added another film title to his long resume by officially announcing his involvement with Disney’s live-action film based on the beloved Disney Parks ride, the Jungle Cruise.  Last month, Johnson even found time in his busy schedule to surprise park-goers on the magical ride in Disney World. But, it turns out, that visit to Disney World may have been for a totally different reason.

Earlier this week Johnson dropped some more awesome news on Instagram regarding the theme park ride and his latest project.  According to his post The Rock will have a first hand involvement in renovating the Jungle Cruise ride.

His Instagram post is rather long.  He talks about visiting the coveted and secretive Disney Vault and seeing priceless pieces of Disney history.  In one part of his post, he talks about how starring in the upcoming Jungle Cruise film is a dream come true but, being involved in the re-engieer and re-design of the ride takes it to the next level:

“…what I do know is being able to star in and produce #JungleCruise is a dream come true. BUT what takes this to the next level, is that we’ll partner with Disney’s brilliant Imagineers to help re-engineer and re-design the #JungleCruise ride in all the Disney theme parks around the world. A very special opportunity for us and our @sevenbucksprod to create an unforgettable and fun EXPERIENCE for families around the world. And as Walt Disney himself would say… it’s magical. Next step is finding our visionary director. Exciting times. #JungleCruise #TheExperience #DisneyStudios #Imagineers #SevenBucksProds #WaltAndRockWouldveBeenBesties #AndWorkoutBuddies #WaltWouldveLovedMyJackedUpPickUpTruck

Grateful SOB to have Walt and Mickey watching over my shoulder as @danygarciaco and I embark on this amazing project. For our big #JungleCruise creative meeting at DISNEY’s highly secure R&D facilities, me and @danygarciaco were escorted into THE VAULT. A legitimate vault where all of Disney’s biggest secrets and plans are kept. Curtains were pulled back for us to reveal the actual drawn up plans that Walt Disney had his brother, Roy Disney take to New York to present to the bankers in 1950 for the potential loan to build what’s now known as Disney Land. Cant imagine what that meeting with bankers was like. Roy: Alright gentlemen, so me and my brother Walt, want to build the greatest multiple theme park attraction in the world. Banker: Oh that seems fun, Mr. Disney. Roy: *smiles in a playful mischievous manner, Oh yes my good man, it will have a few things that are in fact, fun. Well, clearly I don’t know how the hell men were actually talking in the 50’s, but what I do know is being able to star in and produce #JungleCruise is a dream come true. BUT what takes this to the next level, is that we’ll partner with Disney’s brilliant Imagineers to help re-engineer and re-design the #JungleCruise ride in all the Disney theme parks around the world. A very special opportunity for us and our @sevenbucksprod to create an unforgettable and fun EXPERIENCE for families around the world. And as Walt Disney himself would say… it’s magical. Next step is finding our visionary director.
