New details on the upcoming Jungle Cruise Skipper Canteen

Dec 06, 2015 in "Jungle Cruise Skipper Canteen"

The opening of the Jungle Cruise Skipper Canteen at the Magic Kingdom is fast approaching, and today we've got some more details on what to expect.

Disney hasn't released official information on the restaurant yet, so as always, what follows should be treated as speculation until confirmed.

Located in Adventureland just across from the Tree House, the restaurant will be table service for both lunch and dinner, with entrees averaging around $15 and desserts $8.

Capacity is around 220 guests, split into multiple rooms. The main dining room is the Mess Hall, with other smaller dining rooms leading from that central area, including one dining room hidden behind a bookcase which once served as a secret meeting room of the famed Society of Explorers and Adventurers. There is also a Schweitzer family dining room, separate from the Mess Hall.

The menu is inspired by the rivers of the world, with an emphasis on African, Asian and South American cuisine. Menu items include Char sui Pork, Steak with Yuca Fries, Stir Fy, Falafel with a Cucumber Salsa, Pineapple Coconut Cake.

As you would expect from the name, there are nods to the Jungle Cruise throughout, and servers are dressed in the same costume as the Jungle Cruise skippers.

Two signature cups will be available for purchase with signature drinks including the Punchline Punch and Schweitzer Slushie.

Still no word yet on an opening date, but it will begin offering walk-ups only later in December 2015, with reservations available following the initial walk-up only dining.
