Looking for classic Disney snacks and restaurants during your next trip to the Walt Disney World Resort? Look no further than the Magic Kingdom!
Disney World’s original theme park packs in all of the classic snacks like churros, corn dog nuggets, and DOLE Whips, along with several of the Resort’s most popular restaurants including Cinderella’s Royal Table, Be Our Guest Restaurant, and the Crystal Palace, just to name a few.
Along with some of Disney’s most popular (and hard to reserve) table-service dining locations, the Magic Kingdom is home to a couple of restaurants that tend to fly under the radar, like the Plaza Restaurant on Main Street, U.S.A. and Jungle Navigation Co LTD Skipper Canteen in Adventureland.
To find one of the best “not so secret” menu items around, we need to head into Adventureland to the Jungle Cruise-inspired eatery. With theming devoted to the nearby attraction and the lore of S.E.A. (Society of Explorers and Adventurers), dining at the Jungle Navigation Co. LTD Skipper Canteen is a unique experience in itself.

In addition to favorite entrees like the “Tastes Like Chicken, Because It Is,” noodles, salads”Hardy Har Char” Siu Pork and more, Jungle Navigation Co. LTD Skipper Canteen serves up Pão de Queijo, or Brazilian cheese bread. It is not listed on the regular menu, but it is certainly something you might want to order during your next visit.
Brazilian cheese bread is not new to Walt Disney World altogether. In fact, it is one of the most popular snacks for Guests “tasting their way around the world” during the annual EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival. If your visit falls outside of the festival season, you can now rest assured that Brazilian cheese bread is also served in the Magic Kingdom!
