Skipper Canteen was my absolute favourite place to eat on this trip and I recommend it to anyone who is asking for places to eat on upcoming visits.
Skipper Canteen is in Magic Kingdom, it’s in Adventureland and right opposite the Swiss Family Treehouse.
It was (aside from Be Our Guest) my most anticipated meal of the trip.
Food wise the menu wasn’t something I would normally choose, its African/Asian/South American inspired and not the type of menu you find anywhere else really.
Its meant to be the headquarters of the famous Jungle Cruise Skippers and you will be seated in one of 3 rooms, The Mess Hall, The Jungle Room or the S.E.A Room.
We were seated in the SEA room which is a secret dining room. And the one I’d seen on the Vlog so yay!! (Pic from WDWMAGIC.COM as I didn’t take any) We were on the table in the top left.
This place is a hidden gem, it was so quiet and especially so being in the room we were in so that was lovely 🙂
Food wise the menu is really varied and pretty healthy!
Paul went for Pork with broccoli and rice $24
Amelia had ‘Smilys Little Croc’ which was Chicken Noodle Soup $11
And I went for the lamb chops $28 that couscous it came with was amazing!
Honestly, I still dream about this meal.
It was incredible. Looking at those pictures I can still taste it! I have to eat here again!
Puddings were just as good.
I had the coconut bar, it was so nice, again not something I would normally eat but I wanted something a little lighter. It was like a cheesecake texture and not too overbearing with the coconut (see much more detail than other reviews, I can literally still taste it) $8
Paul went for Kungaloosh which was a Chocolate cake with bananas $8
It was small but quite heavy so that was plenty for him.
Amelia had the kids Volcano cake (I don’t have a picture sorry) which had caramel inside and popping candy.
Price wise it was the same as most of the other places we ate in $15-$35 per adult. All the menus can be viewed on My Disney Experience so you can see exact prices and what other food there is.
Dining Plans are accepted and this will cost you 1 table service credit.
All in all this was the nicest meal we had. It was quiet. Atmosphere was lovely in there and being in the small room almost made it feel like we were doing private dining. Cast members were lovely and it was just a really nice experience.
The quality of the food was incredible and it was nice to have something that was a little healthier than steak and chips!
I think this place is one of those hidden gems. When you visit for the first time you just tend to go for the character dining and the more well known/popular eateries in the parks. This tends to be one for regular visitors, which is a shame cos it is THAT good.
If you have a trip planned and want somewhere to have a nice sit down meal in Magic Kingdom I urge you to book here. You won’t be disappointed.
If you go after reading this then let me know what you think 🙂 I’d be interested to hear other opinions on it as well 🙂
