Jungle Cruise-Themed Restaurant Coming to Adventureland in the Magic Kingdom

After months of waiting and wondering, Disney has made it official: a Jungle Cruise-themed restaurant is coming to Adventureland in the Magic Kingdom. The Jungle Navigation Co., Ltd. Skipper Canteen is scheduled to open later this year.

The Jungle Navigation Co., Ltd. Skipper Canteen will feature several dining areas including the Crew Mess Hall and a "once-hidden secret meeting room" of the Society of Explorers and Adventurers.

In a fun Disney twist, that is the same group who used to frequent Jock Lindsey's Hangar Bar which is opening in Downtown Disney/Disney Spring later this year.

The Skipper Canteen will also be staffed by Jungle Cruise Skippers, so it's a good bet that guests will be entertained just like they are on the actual Jungle Cruises.

While there's no official word yet on what kind of service the Skipper Canteen will have, there is speculation that it will be a counter service at lunch and a table service at dinner, just like Be Our Guest.

The Jungle Navigation Co., Ltd. Skipper Canteen is scheduled to open in late 2015. It will be located in the former Adventureland Veranda location, next to the Sunshine Tree Terrace.

I hope it is open late fall when we are there. It sounds like fun and I am curious what kind of food will be served.
