REVIEW: Jungle Skipper CanteenREVIEW: Jungle Skipper Canteen
January 13, 2016

Our first opportunity was when we were in the theme park on New Year's Eve. Sounds impossible, especially because Skipper Canteen isn't taking reservations, right? We actually didn't think it was that bad because we were prepared to wait to try something new.
