Across the way from the classic Jungle Cruise attraction sits this new restaurant. Featuring the flavors of Africa, Asia and South America, this new dining experience can seat 222 guests in one of three rooms: the mess hall, a jungle-inspired parlor once used by the company’s founder, Dr. Albert Falls, or the former meeting room of the mysterious Society of Explorers and Adventurers (which is behind a secret bookcase). Guests who enjoy being entertained while they dine, will find the wisecracking from the Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd. crew to be fun.
