My husband and I went on the Backstage Magic tour which included lunch here. It was excellent. The staff was friendly and enthusiastic. We had the barbecue skillet which included ribs, sausage, pulled pork, chicken, and baked beans. A smaller skillet included corn on the cob and mashed potatoes. We enjoyed that and went back for breakfast the next morning.... More

This is my 2nd review. During our last visit in April 2015 I had the meatloaf & I cleaned my plate. It was really good. My husband & teenage daughter had the all you can eat. If there is something in the all you can eat that you don't want you can eliminate that item and request extra of something... More

We went into this restaurant thinking we'd have a great time but our server was boring. All of the other tables were having a good time and we just kind of sat and ate like we were at any other restaurant. My husband and I ordered the platter. It was ok. I liked the beans the best. The older girls... More

We enjoyed the fun wait staff and the menu choices. The scenery is so beautiful, being located in the Wilderness Lodge at Disney. Of course, being in that location also means having to pay higher prices. A breakfast for six people cost us over $100, which was way more than our regular breakfast bills. Take the time to splurge once... More

Truly enjoyed our experience here! We sat in the very back, make sure to sit in the main dinning hall. Food was ok nothing grand, lacked flavor. Shrimp appetizer was the best tasting item we ordered. I had the NY strip cooked perfectly but no flavor. Would have rated a 5 but we were not in the main dinning area... More

Really fun place to eat. Food, while overpriced, is good. We had a server that was only half into the fun and games...which kept it from getting a five. She also disappeared for about 20 minutes. My daughters loved all the games and atmosphere.

Visited this morning for breakfast and very much enjoyed it. We have numerous allergies so each one was accommodated, but it was a bit hit & miss. When asking if the maple syrup was allergy friendly, we were told 'it should be okay'!! We've been fine since, so I guess they knew what they were doing. However the food was... More

First night at Disney we decided to eat dinner at our hotel. Review for Whispering Canyon were decent, so we gave it a shot. Wife had the meatloaf, I had New York strip, and my daughter had a kids meal (forgot what it was because it wasn't that great). My wife like the meatloaf. Very moist and the gravy completed... More
