Rumors have been swirling for weeks that a major menu change is coming to the Jungle Navigation Co. Skipper Canteen Restaurant at the Magic Kingdom. On top of that, Disney suddenly began accepting advance dining reservation up to 180 days out for the restaurant just last week in an effort to draw in more guests. Well, over the last few days, the kid’s menu at the restaurant underwent a few changes…
Now gone from the menu:
- Safari Soup – egg drop soup
- Amazon Annie’s House-made Arepas – slow cooked beef, black beans, and queso fresco served with Yuca planks. Comes with choice of dessert (see below) and choice of small lowfat milk, small bottled water or small apple juice
New items replacing these dishes are the Safari Snack and Chef Tandaji’s Crispy Chicken.
Also, the mac and cheese received a name change and less complex description (probably in an attempt to appeal to more kids). Here is the original description:
- Junior Skip’s Special Mac and Cheese – a typical Egyptian dish consisting of ground beef, pasta, bechamel sauce and house-made JBen cheese gratinee served with broccoli. Comes with choice of dessert (see below) and choice of small lowfat milk, small bottled water or small apple juice
The bigger changes to the main menu are still expected, but appear to have been delayed, at the very least, for now.
