We're DVC members and Wilderness Lodge Villas is our home resort so that's where we usually stay during our vacations. The last couple trips, we've eaten at Whispering Canyon for breakfast during one of our last days at Disney. The Pros: It's great fun! You must ask for ketchup while you're there. Even if you don't really want any ketchup,... More

This is a loud, family style restaurant where the staff interacts with the guests. We did not know that prior to booking a reservation. We ordered family style, all you can eat, barbeque which was good but not great. That makes value good, especially if you are big eaters. Service was slow.

The stuff with ketchup, jail boards and such was entertaining and the server was excellent in the way she dealt with us The all you can drink milkshakes are fabulous We got the skillet - the ribs, beans and chicken were just like you get at Flametree (which is nice food but way cheaper at Flametree) We were on dining...

Serving meals all day, the servers make the experience quite unique. Kids love this place and adults leave with a smile.

Our initial reason for booking this restaurant was purely for convenience as it was within our hotel, however when looking at reviews we were a little worried as it was described as loud and for little kids. It turns out that we actually enjoyed our time there. The skillet was delicious and great for sharing. When you first arrive at... More

A lively restaurant which is NOT the place for a quiet romantic meal. You have the choice to let your server know if you want to join in the fun or just observe, so don't feel youre forced to join in. Servers friendly and fun. Food good and whilst not cheap, it wont break the bank. Well worth a visit.

Nice place for a full service meal in Disneyworld with some unique features for the kids. Food was average. Served hot and family style. Themed venue with the accompanying characters you would expect. Portions were plentiful. Ribs, Fried Chicken, Corn on the Cob (less than fresh) cornbread, fries, beans, etc. Take the kids and enjoy....

The convenience was great but don't be sticker shocked. If so, then jump in your car and find the nearest Publix to stock up a little.

We have dined here multiple times through the years, and returned to some changes. First off, we thought we'd walk up early around 5:20p, but they - apparently - only took reservations. That was something new for us, so we went ahead and went on WDW Dine and made a 9:30p reservation. Upon our return at 9p, they seated us... More

So much fun! You are a part of the action and the meal is action packed. We loved our waitress, Loopy Lisa, and the food was just awesome. Get the all you can eat skillet for the table: you won't be disappointed! Come early and explore the AMAZING Wilderness Lodge if you've never been!
