The new Jungle Navigation Co.- Skipper Canteen restaurant in Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom yesterday began operating under “soft opening” rules which means no reservations are accepted and there is no guarantee the restaurant will be open when you visit. Rumor has the new restaurant opening officially next Wednesday. There is currently no alcohol on the menu (many thought there would be limited alcohol similar to Be Our Guest). It does appear that the location has a fairly decent menu which at this time is the same menu offerings for both lunch and dinner (table service).
If you don’t follow Big Fat Panda on YouTube ~ you should! John is an Orlando local that gets some of the best video of happenings around Walt Disney World. Here’s his first look at Skipper Canteen:
I am totally disappointed that I missed the opening. I spent a few days at Walt Disney World at the end of last week and the location didn’t appear at all ready to go, but once again – Disney worked their magic and over night the doors opened!
