This restaurant shares the log-cabin lodge feel of Disney’s Wilderness Lodge. Here, you’ll find wooden furnishings and large windows providing views of the forest and beautiful natural light. Meals are served in cast iron skillets, and refreshments in mason jars.

You can come hungry and leave happy for breakfast, lunch, or dinner! For breakfast and lunch, choose from The Heritage, The Carnivore, or The Lighter Side All-You-Care-To-Enjoy Skillets. (Please note that while skillets are large and All-You-Care-To-Enjoy, they are priced per person). If you’re leaning towards an entree instead of a skillet, try the Pepper Jack “Cheese” Frittata, Applewood-smoked Turkey Sandwich, Western-style Benedict, or “Jacked Up” Avocado Toast.

If you’re visiting for dinner, you can choose between four All-You-Care-To-Enjoy Skillets: The Traditional, The Pig, The Land and Sea, or Plant-based. Alternate entree options feature Char-crusted New York Strip, Pan-fired Red Quinoa Cakes, and Cedar Plank Salmon. Finish your meal with a delicious slice of Granny Smith Apple Pie or Whispering Canyon Pioneer Chocolate Cake.

The restaurant offers allergy-friendly skillets, starters, entrees, and desserts, but Guests must speak to a Cast Member upon arrival about their allergy request. Guests can find the complete menus on the My Disney Experience app.

Dining Tips

This dining experience is unique, so be prepared to handle a little sass served on the side of your barbecue. The Cast Members at Whispering Canyon Cafe love to “horse around” and have a fun time, maybe even pull a prank or two on you. So be sure to keep your wits and condiments about you as you dive into your delicious skillet.

Beginning on January 9, 2024, this dining location will accept the Disney Dining Plan. This means that Guests using the Disney Dining Plan during their vacation can redeem a Table Service meal credit here. Guests using the Disney Dining Plan still require an advanced dining reservation.

Additionally, Walt Disney World Annual Passholders and Disney Visa Cardmembers receive a 10% discount at this location.

About Megan Losey

As a Disney foodie, I love writing about Disney food and snacks. Some of my favorites are the Carrot Cake Cookie from Trolley Car Cafe, the Mickey Beignets from Port Orleans French Quarter, and the Apple Blossom from Port Orleans Riverside. When I'm visiting the parks, you can find me on Main Street taking in the good vibe of Magic Kingdom or relaxing with a drink at the Polynesian watching the fireworks from the beach. As a previous Cast Member, I will always have a special place in my heart for the Magic Kingdom, especially Main Street U.S.A.
