Whispering Canyon Cafe
Looking for any input on dinner at Whispering Canyon Cafe. We have never been over to the Wilderness Lodge and I thought that this would be a good way to check it out. Would appreciate any positive or negative feedback for anyone who has eaten here before!
pretty good, wife and i were there a couple times, because it we were staying at the Lodge.
very quirky, lots of fun, definitely recommend if you are going with children. food is good, not great, but good.
Thanks for the info...will be going with 3 children, including my oldest who will be turning 40!!!! Do you know if this is the place that if you ask for a large tea...or drink that they bring you a HUGE drink????

Check out www.allearsnet.com and look under the Wilderness Lodge section to find some of the neat things they supposedly do there
When I went in February, I used one of my wishes to eat here. While it was just us 2 adults, they sat us back by the fireplace as opposed to the big room with all the families.
Our waiter played around with us some, throwing about 20 straws at me when I asked for one. It seemed the kids LOVED the activities going on in this place. Don't think you are going to have some romantic dining experience here though.
We did not order the skillet, but dinners. I had some sort of roasted chicken and it was AWESOME! My friend had the porkchops and she saidd they were divine! Our deserts were yummy too!
So, I thought it was good food and a fun atmosphere. I enjoyed the opportunity to check out the resort as well.
wife and i had the all you can eat skillet for dinner and breakfast (separate days). two of the things i remember seeing was someone asking for ketchup, and everyone in the place brought their bottles to the table. someone else asked for it later, and the previous table got up and brought every single bottle over to the new table, with the wait staff yelling at them to move it.
also, saw a boy, guessing about 10 or 11, who was celebrating his birthday. they made a hat for him out of a napkin, gave him a wooden horse (the one on the pole), and had him run around galloping singing happy birthday to himself as a waiter chased behind him snapping a towel at him yelling to go faster and sing louder.
even if you are not part of the entertainment, it still is just as entertaining to observe.
I will be going here for the first time on my coming trip--I will report upon return.
I have been there once. It is a VERY loud, exciting restaurant. We had a great time eating there!

We ate her on our trip and had a great time!! Lots of entertainment----if you are in a bad mood--do not go!! they are loud and fun!!
The beer cheese soup is amazing there.
60% of the time it works everytime
Went there tonight for dinner. It was a lot of fun. MAKE SURE TO ASK FOR THE KETCHUP! Also when they give you twenty straws put all of them in one drink and ask for more. Our waitress was really thrown off by that.

We hit this on our last nite at Disney...OMG it was so much fun...my DD got to be in the pony race( I went with her -she is only 2 1/2 and kept her at the back) People were loving her because she was bringing up the tail end(get it tail-pony-sorry lame i know..lol) and saying HOP HOP with her earless pony who was named Candy Cane after one of the wait staff. The kids go around the room once and then have to do a pledge that includes encouraging them to jump on beds, hiding their veges under their napkins and promising NEVER NEVER NEVER to go to Universal....LMMEO...SOOOO FUNNY. The kids receive a ceritficate for participating.
One of the funniest things was when my DD wanted a spoon(they dont have them in the table settings) her face when the waittress brought out a giant one was priceless. I couldn't tell if she was amused or confused by it. The waitress even laughed at her.
Majorly liked the potatoes YUM.
If you get the meal plan and can't find room for dessert, you can get it to go(since its paid for already) along with the leftovers of your meal.
I loved getting the 3 foot straws in my mason jar of water! And, as a victim of the Birthday ride, I was gratified that our server required another lady to ride with me since she was on the cell phone while dining with her family!
Please move as far to the end of the row as possible. Stopping in the middle is distinctly unpatriotic!
LOVE this restaurant! The food is sooooooooo good. We ate there quite a bit last year during our stay at WL. Cousin Katie's French Toast is delicious. I liked the pasta for dinner..cant remember what its called but it was in some kind of a spicy cream sauce. The best dinner is the steak! And you MUST get the Apple Pie for desert!
