Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd. Skipper Canteen

Phew. Big name for a restaurant, I’m already out of breath. But get ready, because you’re in for a wild adventure!

The newest restaurant addition to Magic Kingdom. This was one that when I glanced at the menu ahead of time, and I must say, I was a little nervous about! The menu seemed really different, but as it turned out it was different in a fantastic way.

This restaurant is in Adventureland in the Magic Kingdom and is based off of the ride “The Jungle Cruise”.  There are three fun adventurer themed dining rooms in this restaurant. You will be escorted to your table by Riverboat Pilots, who were all so outgoing and entertaining in their own way. The Cast Members here make the experience even better, because if you are familiar with the ride “The Jungle Cruise”, humor is of major importance, as it is here!

Now there are lots of options here at Skipper Canteen, the menu ranges from African, Asian and South American dishes. Your Riverboat Pilot will recommend the dish “Tastes like Chicken – Because it is!”, and you should really listen to them, because it is wonderful.

Another amazing dish was “Dr. Falls Signature Grilled Steak”, which is a New York strip steak, and oh so juicy. A few months ago it was served with Brazil Nut Pesto (the green stuff, and yes its actually delicious!) and a side of mashed plantains. This was one of the most flavorful steaks I’ve had, and is definitely a good choice while dining here.

Dessert is an experience just as exciting as your supper adventure!  I had the “Coconut Bar with Pineapple-Basil compote and Vanilla Cream” (which is a vanilla chiffon cake) but of course got to sample some others as well by sneaking my fork onto other plates.

I’m really not a typical fan of rice pudding, but the “Quicksand!!!!” dessert (yes, it has all of those quotation marks!!!!) is quite lovely!

Now, I also tried to get a picture of the “Kungaloosh!” dessert, which is a chocolate cake dessert, but apparently it was so irresistible that someone in my party dug right in and destroyed it before I could get one. So yes, it is also super good!

As a lot of people know, Magic Kingdom is the one park that does not serve alcohol. There are now two exceptions. If you would like to enjoy a drink with your meal, you can now do so in “Be Our Guest” and “Skipper Canteen” as well. There are also a few adventurous and exotic Mocktails as well that you can try!

This restaurant is a one Table Service dining credit if you have the Disney Dining Plan. If you aren’t a part of the Disney Dining Plan, the main entrée dishes range from $15 to $35 USD.

The food here really does look “exotic” upon first glance, and the flavors and colors are so bold and still so pleasant. Originally, I figured maybe this restaurant would be for a more adventurous palette, but I was pleasantly surprised.

  1. This was my first stop on my last trip and I loved it! The waiters had me laughing throughout the meal. The Jungle Cruise type of humor and the theming of the restaurant have made this a must see for me.
