Alberta Falls is a Jungle Cruise character featured in the Skipper Canteen restaurant.

Background

Alberta Falls is the granddaughter of Jungle Navigation Company founder Dr. Albert Falls. When she was eight years old, her father Albert Falls Jr. sent her to live with her grandfather, as he was busy traveling on the lecture circuit and he recognized an adventurous spirit in her that would be better allowed to grow in the jungle. With Albert Falls often going on adventures of his own, she was generally raised by the skippers of the Jungle Navigation Company and she considered them a second family.

When she inherited the Jungle Navigation Company from her grandfather, shipping was in decline. Seeking a solution to turn things around, she turned to the Skippers for ideas and they suggested switching their business model from moving cargo to moving tourists. The first of these Jungle Cruises would be held on October 1, 1931 and these became very successful. In time, she would open up the Skipper Canteen, headquarters and Falls family home, to offer food for travelers in 1938.

Personality

Being raised by Albert Falls and the Jungle Cruise Skippers, Alberta inherited much of her sense of humor from them. Her introduction in the Skipper Canteen's menu possesses many references to the Jungle Cruise skipper spiel. Additionally, her portrait is done in an abstract style, in contrast to the more formal and realistic portrait of her grandfather that the painting is hung next to.
