It’s official! What’s been speculation and rumors for some time now has become the truth. What was once the Adventureland Veranda ages ago, and has most recently host to meet and greets and a candy stop for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party will emerge later this year as the Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd., Skipper Canteen. The news was announced at D23 Expo and reported on the Disney Parks Blog.
The restaurant will serve “World Famous Jungle Cuisine,” and there will be several unique dining rooms, including both a crew mess hall and a once-hidden secret meeting room of the Society of Explorers and Adventurers. Staffing the restaurant will be Jungle Cruise Skippers.
I’m really excited for some new life to be given to the space, and can’t wait to see the magical Disney touches that are sure to inhabit the restaurant! We’ll keep you posted as we find out more.
