The food was good, don't get me wrong, but it truly was the staff that made this a memorable experience. We were waited on by Jeff (AKA Jeffro) and his "daughter" Sunshine (AKA Jenny) was part of the show as well. They goofed around with my daughter and supplied her with endless milkshakes - perfect way to start off our... More

We ate here for breakfast on the second day of our trip. The "theme" of this restaurant involves getting involved with the crazy antics of the wait staff, which definitely isn't my thing - I'm pretty introverted. Luckily, they have a system in place that allows those who aren't interested in craziness to avoid the games - you simply turn... More

You're invited to join in the cast "antics" when you eat at the WCC. This seemed to be a chance to hear loud bellows of "ketchup wanted here" at frequent intervals or some odd interaction between guests and cast members that I didn't really get. In any case, it wasn't for me. On the good side, WCC deals with allergies... More

Noisy. I knew it would be noisy, I had no idea how much. As a result I did not enjoy the meal and would never go back. What was surprising, was that my daughter who is 7 also did not enjoy it. There was shouting, whistling and jeering, and the restaurant had more of a casual counter-service style feel to... More

This was my third time here and it was even better than before. We were seated in the "whispering" section which suited my introvert husband. We ordered the endless skillet and it was wonderful. The service, atmosphere, and food made this our favorite meal of the week at WDW. Will definitely be back!

I was disappointed by our experience here. The food was just average. I had the specialty barbecue plate which came with a variety of meats; it was fine, but not great. Our biggest complaint was with the service: our drinks, salad and entree all appeared at our table within a thirty second period, and then we barely saw our server... More

After a long day at a business conference, my husband needed a fun dinner that was far removed from studying! So I chose this site as his "get away from adult stress". We were seated within ten mins of arriving in an area that was a bit separate from the main dining area. This turned out to be perfect. We... More
