It’s already corny and cheesy. Now your Jungle Cruise will be meaty, veggie, and dessert-y!
MAGIC KINGDOM, FL — Statistics show that 83.7% of people who go on cruises find the buffet their favorite meal. Disney has taken note of this and has announced that coming this fall, all of the cruises offered on the Jungle Cruise will feature a (mostly) freshly-cooked lunch buffet and a farm-to-table dinner buffet on the Lido deck.
Our favorite Disney (the company) spokesperson, Jun Disney (no relation, except she is employed by Disney (the company)), shared the following, “We secretly placed microphones on the boats so we could listen in on their comments. Many of them kept referring to something as cheesy. You know what is cheesy? Mac and Cheese! And we have the best!”
We pressed Ms. Disney (no relation) for more information. She got in two more rounds of Candy Crush before she continued. “We know our guests come to the parks for our world-class dining. We just knew that after bringing the cruise ships to Orlando, we needed to make our finest cruise experience even better! There is nothing like lounging poolside with a huge plate of build your own nachos, hand carved roast beef, and curried goat!”
Soon after our conversation, Ms. Disney (no relation), sent us additional information via electronic telegraph. Guests will need to make advanced reservations. A credit card is required to hold the reservation. Photo ops with the Skipper of your boat will be an additional charge. A PhotoPass photographer will be available on the boat, but guests (including Annual Passholders) who make use of the service will be required to pay an additional fee for the photo.
Dining will not start until the boat has left the dock. Guests will be required to immediately disembark the vessel after docking. Parties of 1 or more will have tip added. Cancellations must be submitted in writing 179 days in advance or your credit card will be charged a $53.95+ tax and tip fee. One churro per person included, additional churros may be purchased at least 181 days in advance.
