Whispering Canyon Cafe’s Theming

From the moment you step inside, you’ll be transported to another world – the deep woods of America’s heartland. The theming is impeccable and truly sets the stage for a one-of-a-kind dining experience. 


The restaurant is located in the beautiful Wilderness Lodge’s lobby, which is beautifully themed to begin with. You simply walk into the lobby and the restaurant is right there to your left, you can’t miss it! 

Restaurant Theming

For theming inside the restaurant, it blends perfectly into this Pacific Northwest Resort. Disney’s Imagineers went above and beyond when it comes to designing and facilitating a restaurant that fits so perfectly into a place like Wilderness Lodge. 

As soon as you walk into the restaurant the theming of the tables and walls, everything is perfectly spot-on with what’s already there in the lobby. As you make your way into the restaurant, you can find wood and stone on every surface, rustic chandeliers with candle stick light bulbs, and wall art depicting life in the west. Heading into the back of the restaurant, there are even little tables next to the fireplace which is gorgeous and offers a nice, relaxing tone to your meal. Overall, two thumbs up for the way they have integrated this restaurant so seamlessly into the resort

Food Quality

But Whispering Canyon Cafe is more than just a pretty face. The food here is seriously good. This dining location offers bottomless platters in an all-you-can-enjoy format, which some might think means you’re sacrificing the quality of your food for larger portions. As for the food quality, Whispering Canyon Cafe’s menu definitely won’t disappoint!

There’s something for everyone on the menu, so whether you’re a carnivore or a vegetarian, you’ll find something to your liking. We gravitated towards the excellent skillets that offer combos like House-made Buttermilk-Cheddar Biscuits and Sausage Gravy with Scrambled Eggs, Country Potatoes, Hickory-smoked Bacon, Pork Sausage Links, plus Mickey-shaped Waffles, but there’s much more. From breakfast staples like the Pepper Jack Frittata or the Ham and Cheese Omelette to wild creations like the “Jacked Up” Avocado Toast which features Jackfruit on avocado toast, there are quite a few choices for all tastes.

So as far as the food goes, the quality and taste was really good. Our food came out quickly, it was nice and hot, and was cooked just how we ordered it. What more can you ask for?
