Whispering Canyon Cafe is a table service restaurant located at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge Resort. This location is famous for its ‘Jungle Cruise’-like antics, yelling for ketchup, and general tomfoolery. Back in May we told you that the antics were being trimmed-down and most importantly the noise level was dropped significantly. An uproar was felt over social media, so we felt a visit was necessary to see exactly what’s been calmed down.
Mountain Trail Cocktail – Moonshine Whiskey, Chambord, Blackberry Brandy, and Wildberry topped with Lemonade – $11.50
This was light and refreshing, a great way to check out moonshine if you haven’t had the spirit before. The other ingredients mask everything else a little too well in this particularly boozy concoction.
All-You-Care-To-Enjoy Chocolate, Vanilla, Strawberry, or Caramel Shakes – $9.00
As is tradition, dinner starts with cornbread. It’s very good with the butter, but don’t fill-up just yet.
All-You-Care-To-Enjoy Skillet – $33.00/person
Yeah but are the antics still happening?
Well, yes and no. The music is definitely toned-down, you can barely hear the background music or speaking when the pony stampede parade is going on with kids. Regular server antics are still happening. We had straws thrown at our table, the skillet was slammed down, and our own Tom Corless had a gigantic mason jar full of soda brought out to him after drinking a few glasses very quick.
Guests are still yelling for ketchup, but the servers are keeping their voices down and not screaming across the restaurant. The tables close to the ketchup shortage know what’s going on where 20 feet away people wouldn’t be able to hear. This is a good thing for the echoing lobby, and the DVC rooms right above Whispering Canyon. The restaurant isn’t ruined, the food is better than ever, and the atmosphere is lighthearted and fun enough to enjoy.
