Disney World's Rumored Jungle Cruise-Themed Restaurant May Serve Booze

It's slated to open this November.


Orlando's Disney World may soon have a Jungle Cruise-themed restaurant. According to the Walt Disney World Theme Parks blog, a restaurant featuring motifs from the famed safari-themed Disney attraction will takeover the Adventureland Veranda — a space that has been closed since 1994. Called Skipper's Cantina, the restaurant will offer counter service at lunch and table service at dinner. Orlando Weekly writes that the restaurant — which is slated to open this November — may even serve alcohol, making it only the second restaurant in the Magic Kingdom to do so.

Disney's campus in Orlando has rapidly expanded its restaurant offerings over the last year. Coffee addicts now have access to a Starbucks with a roof made of lemongrass and a Starbucks Trolly Car Cafe. There's also a food truck park in Downtown Disney alongside a vegan bakery from BabyCakes NYC's Erin McKenna. Even Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto is getting in on the action: He plans to open a pan-Asian restaurant serving dim sim this year.
