Whispering Canyon Cafe offers a western feel and menu in the Wilderness Lodge. As usual, Disney has overdone themselves in themeing this restaurant. Every dining room is dedicated to a different animal. Walls are covered with brightly colored murals depicting the animals. The staff is very energetic and full of western flare.

 

 

The family dining atmosphere at the Cafe includes stick horse races, Lincoln logs on each table, and special birthday events. The all you can eat shakes can be substituted as a drink and be re-filled unlimited times.

Menus

The menu is Basic American food nothing too fancy. For fancy go to the Artist Pointe. For a good laugh, ask for Ketchup and see what happens. Servings have large portions and include dinner salads unlike most other WDW restaurants. The BBQ is really good, and the pecan pie is amazing!!
