Skipper Canteen – Disney Dining Review

The Magic Kingdom is the world’s busiest theme park but up until recently the variety of dining options have been limited to mostly quick service locations and character meals. Recently, Disney is making efforts to not only add more restaurants but more variety to the types of cuisine offered. One of the more unique additions is the Jungle Cruise themed Skipper Canteen. After a lengthy journey through exotic rivers, we stepped off the boat and into the canteen for lunch.

Disneyland – The Original TV Special

Over the past year, there have been a variety of celebrations inside the park and out. Just this past weekend, a much anticipated commemorative special aired on ABC under the banner of The Wonderful World of Disney. Appropriate, since The Wonderful World of Disney series once had a different name: Walt Disney’s Disneyland.
