Jungle Cruise Themed Restaurant to Open in Adventureland
It’s official. Just announced at the 2015 D23 Expo, Magic Kingdom with soon be adding a new restaurant to their dining line up. The announcement should thrill fans of the Jungle Cruise. Jungle Navigation Co., Ltd. Skipper Canteen will be opening in former site of the Adventureland Veranda.
According to the Disney Parks Blog, guests will be able to experience “World Famous Jungle Cuisine” in one of several unique dining rooms – including a crew mess hall and a once-hidden secret meeting room of the famed Society of Explorers and Adventurers. The restaurant will also be staffed by Jungle Cruise Skippers.
Let’s hope the food is better than the jokes. :)
The long neglected space has recently been used for character meet and greets, but fans have been hoping for the return of a dining option. Speculation was high that an announcement was coming after the recent refurbishment and expansion of the Liberty Tree Tavern kitchen (which will be shared with the new restaurant).
