It’s time to start sippin’, Skipper…
Because a few new drinks have made their way to Jungle Navigation Co. LTD Skipper Canteen in Magic Kingdom!
On November 18, 1928, Mickey Mouse appeared in Steamboat Willie.
And the world has never been the same since!
And today through Mickey’s official 90th Anniversary on November 18, 2018, we’re celebrating the Birthday Mouse all over Walt Disney World! [Read more…]
Take note, Jungle Cruisers! If you’re dining at the Jungle Navigation Co. LTD Skipper Canteen anytime soon (a/k/a the Jungle Skipper Canteen) in Magic Kingdom’s Adventureland, you’ll want to know about an off-the-menu item!
Be sure to ask your friendly Skipper (that is, your server!) about what they are referring to as a current special… [Read more…]
Hello there! We’re back with another DFB Video, and today we’re taking you on a new Food Tour in Disney World. Our destination? Adventureland in Magic Kingdom!
Aah, Adventureland! It’s where we go to seek mystery, intrigue, and… Dole Whip! But you’ll find much more than the signature Pineapple Soft Serve in Adventureland, which is home to another beloved cold citrus treat. And with the addition of the Jungle Navigation Co., Ltd. Skipper Canteen in late 2015 (Happy Second Birthday, Skipper Canteen!), Adventureland has its own table service restaurant as well. But that’s not all, so today we’re taking you to ALL the food stops in Adventureland! [Read more…]
Greetings, fellow Explorers and Adventurers!
We’re back for another dining adventure at the Jungle Navigation Co., Ltd. Skipper Canteen… more often referred to (for obvious reasons) as the Skipper Canteen, or — before we learned that tongue twister of a full name — the Jungle Cruise Restaurant, themed for the classic Jungle Cruise attraction.
Your very own Jungle Cruise Skipper is ready to take you on a culinary tour through the Jungle Cruise’s regular stomping — or floating — grounds of Asia, Africa, and South America. That’s what makes up the “World Famous Jungle Cuisine!
And you may just enjoy some of that Jungle Cruise slapstick — both from your server and your surroundings — while you’re at it.
So, welcome back, Cruisers…
… as we once again set foot inside the Skipper Canteen! [Read more…]

Hello, friends! Well, we’d be remiss if we didn’t start out this post by wishing THIS GUY a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!
Mickey Mouse was presented to the world with the premiere of the animated short “Steamboat Willie” on November 18, 1928. And our favorite Mouse will be joining us all around the World today for our November edition of What’s New!
The Holiday Season is upon us! [Read more…]
Whew! What a week it’s been for food news from Walt Disney World! We learned about the opening date for PizzeRizzo, changes to lunch at Liberty Tree Tavern, the (almost) full list of narrators for the 2016 Candlelight Processional, AND expanded options for food booths coming to Epcot’s Holidays Around the World…. to name just a few!
And would you believe it doesn’t end there? We thought we’d pop in with a quick update with EVEN MORE news from around the World. Starting with… [Read more…]
The Jungle Navigation Co., Ltd. Skipper Canteen opened in late 2015 in Adventureland at the Magic Kingdom, serving up exotic dishes and Jungle Cruise Skipper humor on the side!
One of the fan-favorite items on the menu is the S.E.A. Shu Mai, described as “legendary” dumplings that were also apparently a favorite of the Society of Explorers and Adventurers (S.E.A.). And now we’re able to re-create these delicious dumplings at home!
You’ll need a meat grinder or food processor for this recipe but the combining of the meat looks to be the most time-consuming part of the recipe! [Read more…]
Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd. Skipper Canteen opened its doors in December 2015.
Since its very first day, things have functioned differently at Magic Kingdom’s newest eatery based on the classic Jungle Cruise attraction. In its opening weeks, the Skipper Canteen deviated from its counterpart Table Service restaurants by accepting only walk-up guests.
Then this past February, Disney announced that reservations would be accepted for the Skipper Canteen after all — albeit in a unprecedented form. Same-day reservations became available for the spot which previously offered none at all.
But today a third — and presumably final — change has been announced. Like all other Table Service restaurants in Magic Kingdom, the Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd. Skipper Canteen is now accepting Advance Dining Reservations for guests hoping to make future plans to dine there.
Advance Dining Reservations can be made up to 180 days in advance of your visit via the Walt Disney World website, the My Disney Experience app, or by calling (407) WDW-DINE.
