Jungle Cruise Skipper Canteen official opening date set and a first look at the full menu

Dec 13, 2015 in "Jungle Cruise Skipper Canteen"

The Magic Kingdom will officially open the Jungle Cruise Skipper Canteen on December 16 2015 in Adventureland.


Soft opening began today, with entry both now, and from the December 16 official opening date, on a walk-up basis only. No reservations are yet being accepted, although is expected to change in the new year.

The restaurant is open for both lunch and dinner, and perhaps surprisingly and unlike the most recently opened restaurant, Be Our Guest, the Skipper Canteen does not serve alcohol.

We'll be back with a full review later in the week, but until then, here is a look at the full menu.
