    I’m trying to plan my dining amongst other activities. I really want to eat at the Skipper Canteen in MK but don’t want to miss the fireworks. As a general rule, how long would you give to eat a 3 course meal at the SC? Thanks

    Hiya Gemma,

    Welcome to planDisney! We really appreciate you visiting us for help with your planning questions. Now would be the time I would switch to some good Jungle Cruise skipper-worthy jokes about ropes. But unfortunately, Gemma, when it comes to rope jokes, "I'm a frayed," I don't have any. So please keep your hands, arms, feet, and legs inside the boat so we can get to your spectacular question, Gemma.

    Jungle Navigation Co., Ltd. Skipper Canteen is one of my favorite places to dine. The entrees are excellent, and I really enjoyed the Coconut Bar with Pineapple-Basil Compote and Vanilla Cream. I would allocate between one and two hours to fully enjoy your meal. In my experience, most of my dining experiences are right around that 60-minute mark, but since missing the fireworks is not a "whisk" you are willing to take, I suggest allotting a minimum of 90-120 minutes for your entire meal just to be safe.

    I hope this was helpful, Gemma. If I can leave you with one additional tip, it is this: err on the side of caution and allocate more time rather than less for your meal. Having to constantly check your watch or rush to get to a spot for the nighttime spectacular is not ideal. Set aside 2 hours between your dining reservations and the fireworks to give yourself less stress. Please come back and see us if you need anything else.

    Happy Planning,

    Ashley F.
