Located in the old Adventureland Veranda space, this Jungle Cruise-themed table-service restaurant offers a variety of Asian- and South American-inspired fare, and includes the first in-park references in the United States to Disney's Society of Explorers and Adventurers.
The childrens' menu includes:
Desserts (all $8 each) are:
The signature drink is the "Schweitzer Slush" - "frozen apple juice and passion fruit topped with Bursting Green Apple Boba Balls, first concocted by the noted explorer Dr. Albert Slush." It's $5.50, or $14.50 when served in the Jungle Skipper Canteen souvenir mule mug.
The back story is that the restaurant is owned by Alberta Falls, the daughter of its late founder Albert Falls, who was a member of the Society of Explorers and Adventurers. The restaurant restores Dorthea Redmond's interior design for the Verdana in its main dining room, with the addition of several themed side dining rooms.
The restaurants's official opening happens Wednesday, and as of now, Disney is now yet taking advance dining reservations for the Skipper Canteen, though we have heard that it is accepting Tables in Wonderland.Tweet
Char Siu pork at $23 is most certainly ambitious. It would be $10 a serving at any Chinese restaurant.
Shu Mai at $10. I'm sure they are sold as 4 per plate. Almost 3 times more than a typical Dim Sum restaurant.
Disney is the worst offender admittedly but you know the prices are going to be high when you go so you just get used to it. It's a bit like going to Switzerland!
Would you like fries with that? Okay, how about medium-sized fries for $10. That's what you're getting with the Shu Mai prices.
Love some ribs. Okay, you're getting it for $23 for a half stack equivalent with Char Siu, which is not normally considered an entrée item. It should have been offered as an appetizer or a side or a combo.
