Be prepared to enjoy lots of corny jokes and some hella good eats at this sister location to the infamous jungle cruise ride.
We hadn’t planned on eating here yesterday- but walked up to see if they had some availability and they did!
Not only did we survive with our heads about us, but also our wits and a full belly after a delightful lunch. Check out what we ate with Food Allergies at Jungle Navigation Co. LTD Skippers Canteen and if we plan to go back ever again.
The Deets at Jungle Navigation Co LTD Skipper Canteen!
Real quick- this is located in Magic Kingdom- in Adventureland. (so to the left as you walk down main street and by Pirates of the Caribean)
It IS kinda tucked to the Right side and does blend in VERY well. So well that I keep forgetting about it and walk past it all the time. BUT we finally ventured into eat there… and the theming was incredible! Certainly comparable (if not better) than Tony’s and blew the Plaza outa the park (though you can see the Castle from there so #trumpcard)
This is a regular sit down and would be considered in the same category at Magic Kingdom as Tony’s Resturant, the Plaza Resturant, and Liberty Tree Inn. This is not a quick serve, or a character restaurant, but does take the dining plan.
They have alcohol, a full kids menu, and African/Asian inspired eats that are really fun yet not too adventurous.
I mean- just look at this! I want to eat at this booth the next time I come (see- I’m already giving it away. I actually really enjoyed this place!)
We also had a wonderful server that was hilarious yet mild- perfect jungle cruise style. Jungle Cruise is one of my favorite rides (and helloooo the Rock made it SO much better) so that certainly helps!
Food Allergy Eats!
First, let me say, we are used to getting some bigger portions at Disney World, including the other regular sit down restaurants at the Magic Kingdom. So I was surprised to see how small the portions were here. That said- it was similiar in portion to what I ate at the Beast’s Castle for the character dinner (which was *spoiler* double the price and not as good!)
This place is FAMOUS for some seriously good food- specifically the gluten free Fried Chicken. There’s comments online that you need to order this an hour in advance, but I’ll say that we were able to sit down with no reservation, order it, and have it within 20 minutes!
This is what my husband ordered with Gluten Only (though it could be modified for soy but NOT dairy)
I could have ordered grilled chicken with Milk/Soy/Gluten Allergy- but instead grabbed the Lamb Tenderloins served with veggies.
For the kiddos, we split a plate between them of steak, potatoes and fruit, with an extra side of fruit (and they still didn’t finish that!).
Food Allergy Menu
Here is the full food allergy menu, the chef was very confident that this could be modified to fit every allergy (never heard a chef so confident but he did a magnificent job!) I was thoroughly impressed and would 10/10 dine here again!
