Whispering Canyon Cafe at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge

I’m popping in today with another Magical Monday review from one of our long-time Disney favorites: Whispering Canyon Cafe at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge! We are relatively frequent fliers at Wilderness Lodge and Fort Wilderness and always set aside an evening to enjoy the Western fare with a side of shenanigans!

Whispering Canyon is known for their tasty beverages and bottomless platters. Both are hearty and good.

What really makes the meal memorable and so quintessentially Disney are the cast member antics!

Junior gunslingers will find all kinds of shenanigans to get into: Lincoln logs, coloring, spirited sing-alongs and even hobby horse races. And the wise-cracking wait staff will make sure that grownup cowpokes get in on the fun too!

We first dined here back in 2013 and have been countless times since. We have so many fun memories… Whit went so far as to ask if the skillet was a souvenir.  HAHA! 

When he asked for a straw… be careful what you wish for at Whispering Canyon!

We tend to frequent Whispering Canyon with friends. It’s a fun place for a group. The kids always need ketchup!

When she asked for “more water”. HA! (Also, I have so many pictures of our husbands in the backgrounds of our pictures with this exact face.)

Whipsering Canyon is one credit on the Disney Dining Plan and is located inside of the Wilderness Lodge Resort. Advance reservations are definitely needed, but it is not one of those impossible to get locations. I do recommend dining here if you are staying at Wilderness Lodge or Fort Wilderness. I do not recommend traveling over here for dinner if you are not staying here!

  1. Thank you for always sharing the disney resort hotels. Even though we’re local, we always enjoy the different resorts. Question for you, did you ever write an article on buying DVC through Disney and what the advantages and disadvantages of resale are. I know someone was going to and you are always my go to all things Disney so I though it was possibly you! Thanks again for all the time and effort you put into giving us Disney opportunities.

    1. Hi Deborah, I have not ever shared my thoughts on that but I can talk candidly with you if you ever want to! Just email me and we can set up a time. Amanda

      1. Thank you. I will do that. We are planning on buying and I have a couple of questions. You’re the sweetest. I plan on scheduling a Alaskan cruise for next year through you as soon as my husband feels comfortable doing it. Hopefully midsummer. We’ve had to cancel 3 trips this year and he would like a little time before I start scheduling for next year. Lol

  2. Hello Amanda. Where can I find the answer to the puzzle from 4/19 post? The order the 3 cards. For some reason I’m receiving your posts a day late. This one is dated 4/20 but just arrived this morning. Will there be more puzzles? Thanks.

  3. I had reservations on June 1 for breakfast at Whispering Canyon Café, but I had to cancel. I am so sad because I always make a stop here on all of my trips to Disney. I will just have to look forward to next year now. Thanks for the review.
