In celebration of Walt Disney World’s 60th anniversary, a new restaurant opened at the park this past December! Themed after the Jungle Cruise ride, Skipper Canteen is a table service restaurant located in the Adventureland section of the Magic Kingdom. The eatery boasts three themed dining rooms, served by waiters Jungle Cruise Skippers with a sense of humor. The menu features a mix of South American, African, and Asian cuisines.
Skipper Canteen goes well beyond the “burgers and fries” (see new menu here: Click for menu)fare that is typical of in-park eateries. Tempted? Your first stop is to check DVC listings and find the property that is right for you. Just imagine: waking up the modern comfort of Bay Lake Tower, and spending a day full of fun and adventure in the Magic Kingdom. Dinner time comes around, and you’re in the mood for something different. The Jungle Navigation Company, Limited Skipper Canteen to the rescue! Hide away in the comfort of the Secret Meeting Room of the S.E.A. (Society of Explorers and Adventurers) and enjoy a relaxing meal! Start off with a Mediterranean appetizer, the Falls Family Falafel! Chick peas and spices, cooked to perfection, and served with a white bean dip. For a North African entree, try the grilled lamb chops. The S.E.A. Meeting room has a cozy atmosphere. Warm wood paneling, stained glass, and plenty of interesting artifacts from the travels of the Jungle Navigation Company. A quiet, relaxing meal is sure to be capped off right with the sweet Vietnamese-inspired flavors of Bertha’s “Banh Bong Lan” cake.
This addition to the pantheon of dining options in the Magic Kingdom has the potential to increase the value of your DVC resale values. The thorough menu options are sure to please the most adventure-minded eaters, while remaining close to home on the flavor spectrum to give everyone a meal to look forward to. If you have a picky eater, try the S.E.A. Shu Mai. While the name and description may throw some off (what the heck is a gyoza skin?) they’re actually delicious spiced Asian pork meatballs, served in wonton wrappers. Don’t miss out! By appealing to the varied feasting options Skipper Canteen opens, you better your chances to get noticed in DVC resale listings.
