The menu folder for Jungle Navigation Co. LTD. Skipper Canteen in Magic Kingdom has been updated to reflect the new story of the Jungle Cruise ride. The ride was updated throughout 2021 and into 2022 to be more culturally sensitive and have a new backstory featuring Alberta Falls (see our posts at the end of this article for more about the updates).

Here is the text of the letter:

Welcome to the Jungle Skipper Canteen!

My name is Alberta and I’ll be your owner, manager, bookkeeper, interior decorator, and sous chef for the next 3 courses (or as far as you get). My grandfather, Dr. Albert Falls, established the Jungle Navigation Company in 1911. His goal was to improve the way in which cargo moved up and down the jungle rivers for his fellow explorers and adventurers. When I was eight years old my parents sent me here to live with my grandfather and the jungle boat skippers. I call the jungle my home and the crew members are my family

That’s why I turned to them when business began to decline soon after I inherited the company. Fewer and fewer full-fledged expeditions were seen in the jungle and Adventureland became more of a destination for greenhorn globetrotters. Simply put, our cargo shipping business was dry docked. Then one of the skippers came to me with an idea. He suggested we use our vessels to offer guided tours to the visitors.

The rest is history! We have been offering Jungle Cruises for several years now and business has never been better. We’ve been so successful that I decided to open up our home offices to hungry travelers. The crew’s mess hall, our old family room and even my grandfather’s old secret meeting room are now open to our diners!

We enjoy having you and we hope you enjoy being had. Please relax and enjoy your meal, then get out.

Yours truly, -Alberta Falls

P.S. I’m sorry, that was rude… Please get out.
