This is a role playing meal location at Disney. It is a must if you like 50's Prime Time cafe at Hollywood Studios. The food was really god and the cast was excellent. Come ready to laugh and have fun. The resort its pretty nice as well.

My kids loved this place so much, they asked when we could go back as we were leaving! The food was good, fresh and tasty and very filling! The waitress was fun and attentive. We will definitely be back! Note that this restaurant makes a game out of asking for ketchup and is very loud with shout outs from time... More

We went to Whispering Canyon for our Family Thanksgiving Dinner while vacationing at WDW. Granted it was Thanksgiving and we had a large party; however, the waitress seemed to be ignoring 2 members of our party. She assisted most of the party in a timely manner, but seemed to be purposefully ignoring the requests from 2 of our party members.... More

You will not leave hungry. The food is o-m-goodness delicious. Meat and potatoes make up the bulk of the menu- good down home cookin'. The milkshakes are a really fun treat. The waitstaff loves to play with you- if you want to play along. If you don't- they give you a thing to put on your table to signal that... More

I understand that this review might be unpopular but I have to be honest. I get the gimmick of shouting about ketchup or pony rides every 5 minutes but it honestly gets old. We went for breakfast because we had heard great things about the food. We sat down and were admiring our surroundings when all of a sudden there... More

We believe this is one of the best kept secrets of WDW. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner we always stop by for breakfast. If you can not reserve breakfast anywhere else, there is always a reservation openings even the day you want to eat here. We did not even stay at the Wilderness Lodge and drove in from Bonnet...

When we go to WDW, we tend to go to buffets (Biergarten in particular) because we like to get bang for our buck. If we're spending $35+ a person, we want lots of food. We decided to expand this trip and try other options at resorts, etc, which led us to WCC. We were pleasantly surprised! The skillet was really... More

What a fun place in the Wilderness Lodge. When you are seated you get a "coaster" that says something like "I want to join in the fun" on one side or "I want a quiet dinner" on the other. While I did see some adults at the next table ask for the "quiet dinner" and noticed that they were left... More

We are currently staying at WDW's Wilderness Lodge where the Whispering Canyon is located. Open from 07:30 to 23:00 daily it serves as a great starter or end to the day when using the parks. It will be even better once the renovation work is completed and you will be able to sit outside once more.

Wow, this restaurant is an undiscovered gem in Disney. The waitress is meant to be snobby and make jokes so that is really fun, and they keep it family friendly. Another thing that is really funny here is that if you need ketchup or something are you in for a run haha! The cutest thing that is here is great... More
