At the D23 Expo (As part of the "Safari So Good – 60 Years of the World Famous Jungle Cruise" presentation), and on the Disney Parks Blog, Disney confirmed the new Skipper Canteen restaurant coming to Adventureland. The restaurant will reside in the former Adventureland Veranda space and construction is well underway for an opening later this year. The restaurant is inspired by the nearby Jungle Cruise attraction.
Guests will be able to experience “World Famous Jungle Cuisine” in one of several unique dining rooms – including a crew mess hall and a once-hidden secret meeting room of the famed Society of Explorers and Adventurers. The restaurant will also be staffed by Jungle Cruise Skippers.
