    Whispering Canyon Cafe- any good?

    Any info on this place? we have not tried it yet and I was putting it on my list of places to go when we're in WDW? We are a couple of goofballs so we wont be put off by any silly antics. So is it fun? And most important is the food good? Any info would be appreciated..... and be forewarned this is the first of many on the list that I'll be asking about

    I hear it's good - avoid the ketchup though.

    I have never been for dinner, but breakfast is very good! It is served family style. It must be good for dinner too, because it is always crowded!

    I think that we have planned every single vacation around food! This one is even worse with the silver add-on- so many great food choices and so many that we've never tried! I cant wait!!!

    I have to try it next time. I rarely eat at a resort other than my own or in the parks, but this sounds like fun and delicious!!!

    It is great! I finally went for the first time in June. If you thought they picked on you at the 50's PT, Whispering Canyon makes 50's look tame and sometimes uneventful. Be careful if you need catsup!

    Great food, great fun.

    If you want to save a few $$, go for lunch. They're still just as crazy at that meal!

    BTW, I call ketchup the "red stuff in the bottle" when I go there.

    Loved it! The lunch skillet is fantastic (the ride around the room on a stick horse, not so fantastic, but still fun!)
    Please move as far to the end of the row as possible. Stopping in the middle is distinctly unpatriotic!

    Wonderful food and love the crazy cast members. Here is what happened when we went last time. Our friend Jim didn't have any cutlery at his seat so he just reached over to the next table and stole some. Well our waitress saw him so she gave him a hard time about it. A few minutes later we had eaten all the bread before our dinner came so Jim asked the waitress if we could have some more. She told him to go to the kitchen himself and get some if he wanted it so badly, he didn't quite know what to say but she pulled him out of his chair and took him to the kitchen and made him get our bread. His DW, my DH and I were in stitches . It was one of the best restaurants we have eaten in. Both for the food and the atmosephere
