If you are planning a trip Disney World, you have to read this review on Whispering Canyon Cafe and check out all my Disney World reviews. 

The Whispering Canyon Cafe at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge is a great place to eat.  It is not a character meal, but the wait staff is hilarious.

Whispering Canyon Cafe Lunch

We have eaten at Whispering Canyon Cafe many times over the years, but I just realized we have only eaten there during lunch.  Whispering Canyon Cafe also serves breakfast and dinner.  They call this cafe “Whispering Canyon” but don’t be mislead by the name as there is nothing quiet about this place.   The waitstaff may be loud but they are great and work very hard to provide a super pleasant time for everyone.  Our family loves their lunch menu.  They have an amazing burger topped with shrimp and chicken quesadillas that have a little kick but are the best quesadillas I have ever had.  In other words, the food is delicious.

Do NOT ask for ketchup! 

The waitstaff will surprise you with craziness and keep you laughing.  Do NOT ask for ketchup!  The wait staff will announce to everyone that you need ketchup.  Everyone in the entire restaurant that has ketchup will bring you a bottle.  Before you know it, your whole table will be filled with tons of ketchup bottles.  They have a few other tricks that make lunch lots of fun.


Whispering Canyon Cafe is located in the main lobby of Disney’s Wilderness Lodge.

When you enter the Wilderness Lodge, you will be in awe at the massive lobby with the enormous logs everywhere you look.  The Wilderness Lodge is my oldest son Casey’s favorite Disney hotel because of his love for bison.  The light features are huge and have bison and ranchers all over them.  See below.  Even the grounds have a huge buffalo made out of shrubs out front on the lawn.  Disney’s Wilderness Lodge might be a lodge, but it is not an ordinary lodge.  It is bigger and better than you could ever imagine.

Land to Sea Angus Burger

Chimichurri Shrimp, Jalapeño Havarti, and Chipotle Ketchup served with French Fries.  This burger was incredible.  I had never had shrimp on a burger.  It was a great combination.  A little spicy but we loved the spice.
