One of the early announcements at D23 was the name of the restaurant currently under construction in the Adventureland section of the Magic Kingdom in the Walt Disney World resort in Orlando. The new restaurant will be called the “Jungle Navigation Co., Ltd. Skipper Canteen”.  The restaurant will contain several specially themed rooms including a crew mess hall and one room that it appears will harken back to the now defunct Adventure’s Club.

It will serve jungle cuisine which is expected to be a blend of Asian, African and South American foods.   Among the specialty foods expected to be available is a slate of dishes based on the rivers guests sail on during the Jungle Cruise attraction.  Dishes include the Irrawaddy Coddy, King MeKong Catfish, Perch that is in da Nile, trunked Congo Elephant Fish, and Amazon Prime Piranha.

The Skipper’s Canteen will be opening later this year….assuming Gilligan doesn’t foul things up again.

New Rumors About Toy Story Land

Star Wars land was just one of the numerous announcements made at the D23 Expo in Anaheim.  Another big announcement, and one that surprised just about everyone, was the announcement of a new 11 acre land coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios themed to Toy Story.

Toy Story Land will make you feel like you shrunk down and are wandering through Andy’s backyard. It will contain two newly announced attractions. The first, will be a family friendly roller coaster in which you will get to ride around on the back of Slinky Dog. The second, will be a spinning ride involving the little green alien men.

Now there has been a lot of Buzz around the the concept drawings that were released. The land looks a little Rocky with a fair number of trees but we are not sure if Woody would be the best way to describe it.

While there has been no Peep about food in the land, rumors of a counter service restaurant serving Hamm, Barbie Q, RC cola and  potatoes heads the list.  

But for now, we will have to wait and Jessie if Disney has hit the Bullseye with this one!
