Food Favorite: Whispering Canyon Cafe

Over the course of the past couple of years, I've shared my favorites about Walt Disney World. It's no secret that I'm slightly obsessed with Ohana and all things bread pudding with bananas foster sauce. However, I do have other food favorites around Walt Disney World - one of them being Whispering Canyon Cafe at Disney's Wilderness Lodge.

It's been a few years since I've eaten here, but I do love it for all three meals - breakfast, lunch, and dinner! 

Tucked just inside the grand lobby of the Wilderness Lodge is Whispering Canyon Cafe. If you happen to visit the lodge during meal times, you can't miss it!

Don't be alarmed by your server's name - they are in it to have a great time and you will too! The servers here are full of shenanigans and will leave you laughing until your side hurts!

Hands down, my favorite menu item is the "Skillet". It's an all-you-care-to-eat style option and comes with an assortment of great food items.

For breakfast, the skillet includes: Scrambled Eggs, Western Home Fries, Bacon, Sausage, Waffles, Buttermilk Biscuits, and Sausage Gravy.

For lunch, the skillet includes: Slow-smoked Pork Ribs, Barbecued Pulled Pork, Roasted Glazed Chicken, and Western-style Sausage served with Mashed Yukon Potatoes, Corn on the Cob, and Cowboy-style Baked Beans.

Finally, for dinner, the skillet includes: Mixed Greens tossed in an Apple Vinaigrette Dressing and Fresh-baked Cornbread (not pictured). Featuring Slow-smoked Pork Ribs, Barbecued Pulled Pork, Roasted Glazed Chicken, Beef Brisket, and Western-style Sausage served with Seasonal Farm Fresh Vegetables, Mashed Yukon Potatoes, Corn on the Cob, and Cowboy-style Baked Beans.

Apart from a slice of smores cake for dessert (which I don't have a picture of), I haven't tried any additional food options from this restaurant - although looking over their menu definitely makes my mouth water!

Another fun option here are the milkshakes - you can order a milk shake as your drink and it's also "all-you-care-to-enjoy"!

Not that anyone NEEDS that much sugar, but it sure is fun to order a refill! :) 

It's been a while since I've visited and this restaurant is included in our plans for February. I can't wait to go back!

Remember that "good time" I mentioned above? Well, if you need ketchup, your server might make you ask for it...really in to the entire restaurant. You might end up with 12 bottles of ketchup on your table!! 

Also, if you've just run your very first full marathon that morning and can hardly move by the evening, they might make you stand and do the hokey pokey. Yep. True story.

The food options here make for a GREAT post-runDisney race meal, by the way!

We were told to "hold up our medals". Well, my husband thought he would be funny and hold up his "metal"...aka his fork. Lordy...see what I live with?! 

This restaurant is definitely best when visited with friends. Your servers will make sure you have a good time and laugh until your sides hurt! You won't leave disappointed, that's for sure!

Have you ever tried Whispering Canyon Cafe? If so, did you like it? What's your favorite meal to eat here?


  1. I've never tried that restaurant but now I'm going to have to!!! LOVE the shenanigans! Always makes it more fun!!!

  2. The food and entertainment remind me of the Hoop De Doo Review. They make you stand up if it's your birthday or anniversary.

    1. You're right, it does remind me of the HoopDeeDoo! We love that place as well!

  3. This is one resort I have never visited! Perhaps i'll get there next month. That breakfast sure does look yummy!

    1. It's so beautiful! Definitely one of my favorites on property!

  4. BAHAHA so much fun! We were so delirious! We took my mom and her friend last October b/c her friend had never been and we had a GREAT server. Sadly there are no more cotton candy milkshakes womp womp.
