Disney has yet to release any official information on the restaurant yet, so remember, what follows should be treated as speculation until confirmed.

Located in Adventureland just across from the Tree House, the restaurant will be table service for both lunch and dinner, with entrees averaging around $15 and desserts $8.

Capacity is expected to be approximately 220 guests, that will be split into multiple rooms. The main dining room will be the Mess Hall, with other smaller dining rooms leading from that central area, including reportedly one dining room that will be hidden behind a bookcase which once served as a secret meeting room of the famed Society of Explorers and Adventurers. There is also a Schweitzer family dining room, separate from the Mess Hall.

The menu is expected to be inspired by the rivers of the world, with an emphasis on African, Asian and South American cuisine. Menu items include Char sui Pork, Steak with Yuca Fries, Stir Fy, Falafel with a Cucumber Salsa, Pineapple Coconut Cake.

As you would expect from the name, there will be nods to the Jungle Cruise throughout, and servers will be dressed in the same costume as the Jungle Cruise skippers.

Two signature cups will be available for purchase with signature drinks including the Punchline Punch and Schweitzer Slushie.

Still no word yet on an opening date, but it will begin offering walk-ups only later in December, with reservations available following the initial walk-up only dining.
