5. Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd. Skipper Canteen
This newer dining hotspot in Adventureland is quickly becoming a favorite with Magic Kingdom lunch and dinner crowds. Inspired by Disney’s classic Jungle Cruise attraction, the restaurant follows the same story and theme of exploration and adventure, with dining rooms and menu items named for the different characters, places, and scenarios mentioned. You’ll even find “off-duty” Jungle Cruise skippers are the ones running the joint. For lunch there’s plenty to satisfy adventurous appetites big and small, with the very best flavors and fusions of African, Asian, and South/Central American tastes, among other delights. Fuel up on bountiful portions of humor and amusement with a side of fun puns as you enjoy witty offerings, like Ginger’s “Croc” of Hot-and-Sour Soup, Orinoco Ida’s Cachapas, Dr. Falls’ Signature Grilled Steak, Sankuru Sadie’s Seafood Stew, Perkins Thai Noodles, and “Tastes like Chicken” –Because it is! to name just a few. While the eatery does offer alcoholic beverages, there are many family-friendly non-alcoholic unique features to pair with your meal, including Punch Line Punch, Exotic Coca-Cola® drinks from Brazil and Thailand, and the Schweitzer Slush (created by noted explorer and humanitarian Dr. Albert Slush), Coffee drinkers can even enjoy some Alto Mayo Protected Forest Coffee, which supports Conservation International’s Alto Mayo Protected Forest Project in Peru. And don’t forget dessert and the unique features awaiting you, like Bertha’s Banh Bong Lan Cake with Mango-Lime Sorbet, the Coconut Bar with Pineapple-Basil Compote and Vanilla Cream, the African-inspired Kungaloosh!, or the famous Quick Sand!!! rice pudding concoction.
