Construction permits filed for new Adventureland Veranda Restaurant

Feb 11, 2015 in "Adventureland Verandah"

It has been the source of constant speculation for the last several years and it now seems that finally the Adventureland Veranda will once again become a restaurant as construction permits have now been filed.

Located just across from the Tree House, it originally operated as a fast food restaurant with a tropical theme from opening day Oct 1 1971, but ceased operating in 1994. The Veranda has since been home to character meet and greets.

Various restaurant concepts ranging from the Jungle Cruise, Pirates of the Caribbean to an Adventurers Club theme have been mentioned in connection with the location over the years.

Related to this project seems to be the extended 6 month refurbishment of the nearby Liberty Tree Tavern beginning his summer. There has been some suggestion that kitchen space and other facilities may be shared between the two restaurants, which explains the rather unusual extended downtime of the Liberty Tree Tavern.

It is not yet clear what the final plans are, but this construction permit certainly puts the Verandah back in the spotlight and we should expect some official announcement of the plans soon.

PCL is killing it lately, provided they get their last 22 billion or whatever it is Planet Hollywood owes them. Though even without that I think they are nearly single handedly rebuilding all of Edmonton, AB plus work around WDW.

A permit was filed today for General Improvements to the Adventureland Veranda which is not Skipper's Canteen. The permit is from PCL Construction Services, one of Disney's bigger contractors, and doesn't expire until May 31, 2018. Adventureland Veranda - General Improvements

Never tried them at Skipper Canteen but the Ohana ones didn't seem like anything special (good, but not great). Are these better?

The potstickers are so good. I just got two orders of them last time and turned it into a full meal lol

Made reservations for my October trip, am looking forward to the variety in MK.

Oh....and speaking as someone who likes hamburgers and hot dogs, there are a surprisingly few restaurants who serve them compared to the 90's. So I think some of the commentary on food variety in WDW is misplaced.

We ate there as a walk in yesterday. It was crazy slow at 6pm, but by 7 it was packed. Our waiter was just the right amount of cheesy, the food was great and the environment is definitely more 'high end' than most of the pics look. I'm a horribly picky eater who thinks there should be more QS burgers and hotdogs. But I think this place should keep its menu. I think more folks will find it now that it has reservations, but I think it may been cocktails to seal the deal long term.

It is live. I made my reservation online last night! Just checked it again and it is accepting online reservations. :)

Just booked a reservation for August, anyone who wants an ADR should check now :)

Last time my kids and I ate at TE we left hungry having been served 2 scallops each with a little rice, or was it noodles, and the bill came to over $100. I can't believe Skippers Canteen could be any worse.
