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!

I loved getting back here on two recent visits in July and August.

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

The a la cart items are nothing to sneeze at either. Everything I’ve tried here has been down-home yummy.

What really makes the meal memorable and so quintessentially Disney are the cast member antics! While some of the shenanigans are toned down, Cast Members go out of their way to make you hoot and holler with laughter.

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 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!

I personally visit the Walt Disney World theme parks at least once per month and continue to be blown away by the thoughtful, practical and comprehensive precautions Disney has in place to safely welcome guests and cast members.
