When we go to WDW, we tend to go to buffets (Biergarten in particular) because we like to get bang for our buck. If we're spending $35+ a person, we want lots of food. We decided to expand this trip and try other options at resorts, etc, which led us to WCC. We were pleasantly surprised! The skillet was really... More

What a fun place in the Wilderness Lodge. When you are seated you get a "coaster" that says something like "I want to join in the fun" on one side or "I want a quiet dinner" on the other. While I did see some adults at the next table ask for the "quiet dinner" and noticed that they were left... More

We are currently staying at WDW's Wilderness Lodge where the Whispering Canyon is located. Open from 07:30 to 23:00 daily it serves as a great starter or end to the day when using the parks. It will be even better once the renovation work is completed and you will be able to sit outside once more.

Wow, this restaurant is an undiscovered gem in Disney. The waitress is meant to be snobby and make jokes so that is really fun, and they keep it family friendly. Another thing that is really funny here is that if you need ketchup or something are you in for a run haha! The cutest thing that is here is great... More

We had a really good meal at this restaurant. My husband and I go to Disney World every year. We are in our late 50's but why shouldn't we have fun too! The best time to go would be later in the evening when it's not as crowded and there are less kids. It's noisy of course, but there's nothing... More

My wife and I recently visited the Wilderness Lodge for brunch with another couple while in Disney. The buffet brunch was excellent. The service was excellent and the food selection was outstanding. We really enjoyed our visit and would recommend this restaurant highly.

Be prepared for some good-natured fun from the wait staff. If you ask for napkins, you'll get them. All of them. I asked for "a little more iced tea" and was treated to a shot-glass sized glass. It's like all the best Dad jokes turned into a restaurant. The all-you-care-to-eat skillet isn't my first choice. Wait staff will keep bringing... More

What a fun place to eat! I loved taking the boat ride over to the restaurant and seeing the lobby of the Wilderness Lodge. It is loud and I should comment that my parents did not enjoy that aspect of it. Also, getting their two scooters over the boat to the lobby was really challenging. The walkway has lots of... More

We very much enjoyed the "antics" and good natured fun by the wait staff at Whispering Canyon. My six year old especially enjoyed the stick horse ride around the restaurant and delivering arm loads of ketchup bottles to another table. The food was outstanding for the most part.... my wife had the rainbow trout which she described as her favorite... More

We had stayed at the Wilderness Lodge many years ago. We had an opportunity to visit again a couple weeks ago. We had lunch in the Whispering Canyon Cafe as part of a tour. We were served family style. Giant plates of ribs, chicken, pulled pork, sausage, baked beans, corn bread and a few other sides. A couple members of... More

And we can wrangle the heartiest appetites, 'cause we've got lunch and dinner Canyon Skillets, too. Be sure to save room for the Canyon Apple Pie!
