Magic Kingdom: Jungle Cruise themed restaurant to open this year

Magic Kingdom diners and Jungle Cruise fans will have a new option soon in the form of the (deep breath) Jungle Navigation Co., Ltd. Skipper Canteen restaurant.

The eatery is under construction in the Adventureland section of the theme park. It will open in late 2015, according to an announcement made at the D23 convention in Anaheim, Calif.

Jungle Cruise skippers will staff the restaurant, so expect some eye-rolling puns on the menu.

Disney says the Canteen will have several dining rooms, such as crew mess hall and a meeting room of the Society of Explorers and Adventurers.

You’d be forgiven if that brought Pleasure Island’s now-defunct Adventurers Club to mind.

Jungle Cruise is one of the original Magic Kingdom attractions, opening with the park in 1971. In its story, wise-cracking cast members navigate the rivers of the world and point out animatronic sights to visitors.
