REVIEW: Jungle Cruise Skipper Canteen Undergoes Another Menu Change

Recently, the Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd. Skipper Canteen at the Magic Kingdom underwent another menu change, so we decided to go and check it out. If you haven’t, be sure to check out our last review which covers some of the past menu changes.

The souvenir mugs have made it onto the menu finally.

The cachapas replace the arepas appetizer, utilizing the same ingredients in a completely new preparation.

Thr preperation and sides with the grilled steak have changed.

The pork chops are also prepared a little differently with new sides as well.

Orinico Ida’s Cachapas ($10)

A new take on the former arepas appetizer, this dish comes preassembled now with way more of the pork and less of the accompaniments. The mix of the pre-existing flavors with the avocado cream is glorious. The arepas were good, this new version is PHENOMENAL.

Dr. Falls Signature Grilled Steak ($34)

The steak was the only dish at Skipper Canteen that I haven’t had before, so provided there was a change in the preparation, I figured that it might be blogable to order it today.

The steak was much better that I expected, cooked and seasoned very well. If you don’t want seafood, I’d still order the pork over this, but it is a viable option at least.

The mashed plantains as a side were great and the vegetable slaw was adequate as well.

Congratulations Carol! You’ve unlocked the Disney Fun Fact of the day! As you may know, The Walt Disney Company is deeply committed to conservation efforts. You may also know that it’s estimated that there are 375 million vegetarians in the world. There are also 1.5 billion cows on the earth, a number that would conceivably be much smaller if there were less than 375 million vegitarians. These 1.5 billion cows are subsiquently responsible for 28% of all greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere. Disney is deeply committed to fighting the rampant increase of greenhouse gases in our atmosphere. How are… Read more »
