February 2011, we went on holiday with my brother, his wife and daughter (then aged 8). While there they wanted to revisit the Whispering Canyon Cafe at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge Resort as they had previously stayed at the hotel and had really enjoyed it.
On arrival at the resort we checked in at the gatehouse and saw 2 deer to the side of our vehicle in the ‘wilderness’.
The Wilderness Lodge is as you would expect very rustic and full of wood. Our table was ready and we were seated straight away.
The theme of the cafe is cowboys and indians – with teepee lights, rodeo pictures, servers dressed as cowboys. Every so often they round the children up for hobby horse races round the restaurant – one of the things my niece had remembered and enjoyed.
The food was hearty and rustic – ribs, corn on the cob, chicken, prime rib. Soda came in jars and my brother was delighted to see Sam Adams on the beer menu.
We had good service and it was a real experience, it wasn’t quiet! Don’t go for a romantic couples dinner – this is not the location for that – there is no whispering at the Whispering Canyon Cafe.
