This Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd. Skipper Canteen dinner review is based on my experience when visiting the restaurant in November 2017 with my family.
The Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd. Skipper Canteen restaurant in located inside Disney’s Magic Kingdom. You will find it in the Adventureland part of the park, across from the Swiss Robinson Family Tree House. They serve lunch and dinner and accept some Disney Dining Plans.
We purchased the Deluxe Dining Plan while booking our trip through the Disney website. This plan includes an entree and beverage for breakfast, and an appetizer, entree, and dessert for lunch and dinner. In addition, each person also receives 2 snacks per day. Disney is changing the plan slightly for 2018, but it seems that it will just include even more options!
The Deluxe Dining Plan treats anyone 10 and up as an adult, so my 10-year-old son ordered off the regular menu for all of our meals. Anyone under 3 is free so long as they just share food from other peoples plates. Sometimes my 2-year-old just ate from our plates, and sometimes we ordered additional food for him at an additional cost.
We did make reservations for all of our meals ahead of time. I would highly recommend doing this as soon as you book your trip, especially if you will be travelling during a busier time of the year.
Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd. Skipper Canteen Dinner Review
I first want to apologize for the quality of the photos. This restaurant had very dim lighting and I did not want to annoy the other guests by using the flash on my camera.
Falls Family Falafel
These falafel balls come served on a smear of white been puree with tomato-cucumber salad. While we thoroughly enjoyed these, I really wish there was more of the white bean puree.
Orinoco Ida’s Cachapas
Dr. Falls Signature Grilled Steak
Nile Nellie’s Noodle Bowl
Skip’s Beefy Baked Pasta
Poor Jaxon. I think ordering off the “grown-up” menu was challenging for him at times. He’s not usually one to enjoy pasta dishes, so I’m not sure why he chose one for his dinner this night. I suppose, he just didn’t want to try anything else and didn’t really understand the description.
This entree is an Egyptian-inspired dish. In almost looked like lasagna with beef, pasta, and a bechamel sauce. It came with a side of vegetables.
Coconut Bar with Pineapple-basil Compote and Vanilla Cream
I strayed from my comfort zone a bit with this choice. I almost always go for the chocolate dessert, but I’ve really been loving coconut lately.
This is a slice of vanilla chiffon cake covered with coconut and lime-white chocolate ganache. There was also bits of the pineapple basil compote with some fun chocolate shavings and a little purple flower on top.
The pineapple basil compote wasn’t my favorite, but the rest was delicious. I also like that the desserts aren’t huge. We were literally so full after each meal!
Bertha’s Banh Bong Lan Cake with Mango-Lime Sorbet
This dessert was fun to order! It’s also a vanilla chiffon cake but it’s flavored with a lemon grass-ginger syrup and served with mango-lime sorbet. My fiance will almost always order ice cream or sorbet for dessert! He said that the cake was good, but that the sorbet was really delicious.
Once dessert came, Jaxon was happy again. If I don’t order the chocolate dessert on the menu, I can definitely count on my son to! Kungaloosh! is a chocolate cake that comes with caramelized bananas. It’s served with cashew-caramel ice cream topped with coffee dust. The only part he didn’t like was the crispy little decoration on top.
As with all of our meals in Disney, we were very happy! Because the menus are always changing, I can’t guarantee the same selections will all be available as in this Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd. Skipper Canteen Dinner Review. To see the current menu and prices, click here!
