Jungle Navigation Co. LTD Skipper Canteen, often called Skipper Canteen, is one of the best restaurants in Walt Disney World. You’ll find Skipper Canteen tucked away in Magic Kingdom’s Adventureland. It’s next to Sunshine Tree Terrace and across from the Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse. After replenishing your nourishment, you can also take a thrilling expedition on the nearby Jungle Cruise with well-practiced skippers.

Quick Service or Table Service?

This is a Table Service restaurant, allowing Guests to make advanced dining reservations up to 60 days before their trip. We highly recommend making an advanced dining reservation as this location is popular due to its unique menu and experience. If you cannot get an advanced reservation, remember to continue checking the My Disney Experience app, as reservations often become available due to cancelations. Additionally, Skipper Canteen offers a walk-up waitlist that Guests who were unable to get an advanced dining reservation can join.

About Megan Losey

As a Disney foodie, I love writing about Disney food and snacks. Some of my favorites are the Carrot Cake Cookie from Trolley Car Cafe, the Mickey Beignets from Port Orleans French Quarter, and the Apple Blossom from Port Orleans Riverside. When I'm visiting the parks, you can find me on Main Street taking in the good vibe of Magic Kingdom or relaxing with a drink at the Polynesian watching the fireworks from the beach. As a previous Cast Member, I will always have a special place in my heart for the Magic Kingdom, especially Main Street U.S.A.
