Jungle Skipper Canteen, a new table service restaurant, will open later this year in Adventureland at Magic Kingdom Park. As announced during this year's D23 Expo, the restaurant will be staffed by servers looking to feed weary travelers with a side of classic Jungle Cruise Skipper humor. The location’s storyline is an extension of the classic Jungle Cruise attraction, a beloved Guest favorite since it was introduced at Disneyland Park in 1955 and at Magic Kingdom in 1971.
Jungle Skipper Canteen will serve lunch and dinner inspired by the flavors of Africa, Asia and South America. The restaurant's soft opening is expected to take place later this year.
