Jungle Cruise Skipper Canteen Kid’s Menu Changes Ahead of Rumored Main Menu Revamp

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

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.

  • This isn’t the change I was expecting, and that’s a good thing. The menu is still “adventurous” compared to all of the other eateries at MK. Hopefully the regular menu doesn’t undergo drastic changes.

  • We ate here last month and spoke with several cast members about the rumored changes to the menu. Everyone assured us the changes had to do with the kids menu only. Apparently, many parents were hesitant to dine there because their kids weren’t crazy about the offerings. Overall, the CMs said folks were reacting very positively to having more adventurous and exotic dining options in MK. We loved our lunch there and can’t wait to return in September.
