Last weekend we had another Disney dining outing. This time we took a gang with us - my mom, dad and aunt visiting from Chicago.
Our destination was Disney's Wilderness Lodge, one of the prettiest resorts out at Disney.
We went to Whispering Canyon Cafe, a delicious restaurant that boasts a "rootin tootin good time" - and it was! The restaurant has a regular menu, and then one of the menu items is the Family Platter which is an all you care to enjoy platter of BBQ ribs, pulled pork, roasted chicken, BBQ steak, corn on the cob, the best mashed potatoes ever and cornbread that tasted like cake. OMG it was so good!
If you are looking for a quiet, romantic dinner setting, this is not your place. While the food is top notch and the scenery is gorgeous (the restaurant overlooks the amazing lobby), the atmosphere of the restaurant is extremely kid friendly and almost has a dinner show type of feel. For example if anyone in the restaurant asks for ketchup the server yells as loudly as they can across the entire restaurant, "KETCHUP!!!!" and 20 bottles of ketchup are delivered to the table from the last table that asked for ketchup. It's actually quite funny. Luckily we needed no ketchup at our table.
And at some point during the meal there is always a round up, where all the kids in the restaurant gather and ride stick ponies through the restaurant while everyone in the restaurant claps and says "yeeehaw!" Only at Disney!!
Overall I loved this restaurant, great food, fun atmosphere. It was definitely rootin tootin!!
Be back later this week to chat about this weekend's jaunt to Kona Cafe. At the Ploynesian Village Resort.
How about you ... Ever been to Whispering Canyon?
