A rumor had been going around that a restaurant themed to the popular Magic Kingdom ride would be opening in the park. Well, it’s a rumor no more.
Disney announced at the D23 Expo that the Jungle Navigation Co., Ltd. Skipper Canteen restaurant will be opening in Adventureland later this year.

According to Disney Parks Blog, guests can look forward to experiencing “World Famous Jungle Cuisine” at the new restaurant. There will also be several uniquely themed dining rooms to choose from. For example, a crew mess hall and a once-hidden secret meeting room from the Society of Explorers and Adventurers.
Plus, the restaurant will be staffed by Jungle Cruise Skippers. So you can try some of the “World Famous Jungle Cuisine” and probably get a nice helping of those corny Jungle Cruise jokes you love on the side.
Not sure yet if this is going to be table service, quick service, or fast casual, but we will keep you updated as more information is released.
You can expect to see this restaurant open its doors in late 2015.
