Great news! MK could really use these extra dining places, especially during peak season, and a themed restaurant just adds to the fun awesome

I hope they'll have a few exotic dishes on the menu Wink

I'm glad Adventureland now has a stand out restaurant. I know there's Tortuga Tavern but that's only open seasonally and pretty average from what I've heard. I think this one will stand out for the better.

Loving this announcement! I don't follow the food stories too much, so this was a surprise to me. I love the Jungle Cruise Skippers and having them staff the restaurant is brilliant.

from the popularity of the JC that I see so often, I think they have to make it awesome to live up to the expectations of all the guests. Hopefully they do!
