Whispering Canyon

I made dining reservations for my husband and I at Whispering Canyon for our first night at Disney for our trip in March/April. I've never been before. I hear it get crazy.

Yup, it does get loud and crazy. However, if you want some peace and quiet while you are there, just ask for some ketchup.

I love Whispering Canyon! It can get crazy - the wait staff plays off the mood of the guests. The more fun you seem to be having the more fun they will have with you wink

We ate there a few years ago.....I wasn't "wowed" by the food. Now one of the reasons could have been i was about 3 months pregnant, still with the all day morning sickness and that metalic taste constantly on my mouth, and had gestational diabetes so i couldn't have a frappe! Our friends love it there. I may try it again though. As far as the nice quiet atmosphere...... laugh my son would ask for ketchup just to ask!

That's exactly what I'm going to do when I'm there next month. None of us have eaten there before and I'm sure I'm the only one who knows about the ketchup.

I'm bringing this thread back up because DH and I are going to Whispering Canyon Cafe for the first time this weekend. DH Aunt is a waitress there, and has been for many years I think, and it will be our first visit. We are excited to see her and experience the restaurant.
I wanted to know if anyone can take the boat from MK to the WL or do you have to be staying at the WL? Also, if anyone can take the boat, about how long can we expect the wait for, and boat ride to WL, to take? We are considering going to MK first and then taking the boat to and from the WL, but that depends on if we are allowed to do that, and how long that process will take.

We only get to be at WDW from Saturday morning-Sunday afternoon, so that's why we are so concerned about how long the boat will take.
We try to make every minute count on our WDW Weekends yay

Yes - Anyone can take the boat! It's one of my favorite parts about staying at Wilderness Lodge.

Waiting for the boat can take 15-20 minutes. However I only waited that long once last year, it was usually more like 5-10 to wait to board if there wasn't a boat already at the dock (frequently there was). Once the boat took off from MK dock it only took about 4 minutes to get to the Wilderness Lodge.

Thanks for the info. I think we'll go to MK first and take the boat to WL since it won't take too long. It will be fun to try the boats and really nice to just hop a boat back to MK after lunch. I know once my DH tries the all you care to eat platters at Whispering Canyon Cafe, he'll want to go there often to visit his Aunt when she's working biggrin

I don't know mrhub, that might be her. We've never been to Whispering Canyon cafe yet and DH hasn't seen his Aunt since he was a kid, so this will be my first time meeting her. We talk to her on facebook and I know that she's been there for years, I just don't know how many years.

BTW, is it a good thing or a bad thing if she's "Mountain Mama?" laugh

Thanks for the picture mrhub. But, no DH Aunt isn't Mt. Mama. His Aunt is older and a teeny tiny little lady.

We just ate there in February when we visited and I am looking forward to going back. It is definitely a fun atmosphere and a great place to eat dinner. Can't wait to go again! clapping

Another awesome Scrappy purse! I am newly obsessed with Disney purses, and own none yet! Incentive to bend that wrist a little more.....

For someone who is restricted to leg elevation until infection goes away, I am enjoying this immensely. BTW, there are great sources for Disney purses, even D&B on ebay as well and NO ONE should be breaking ANYTHING!!!!

I feel like maybe there's a communication error happening?

You can order two "all you can" platters, the waitress will bring you one platter of food and two plates. You and your wife can then take what you want off the platter and they fill it back up for you as often as you need. Your son can order his steak.

So on your bill you would be charged for 2 all you can eat and 1 steak. There's no reason that you can't order that meal, but your wife has to pay for her share of the food. That's only right.

Ah...So it's like price per person per head..Thanks for that Kristen...Still that's a lot of food if two of us order two platters..Especially as they keep filling it back up..I take it that this meal is like a buffet but your server brings you want you want..

Yes, it is price per person and you only get one platter at a time, even if you both are eating off of it. So, if one platter fills you both up, just don't have them refill it. But even if they only bring you ONE platter and they NEVER refill it, you will pay for two dinners because you BOTH are eating from it. Because it is all you care to eat, you both must pay for your meals. Otherwise, it would be like the restaurant giving away a free meal. If you only care to eat a little, then that's your choice. You can pick and choose what you want refilled. If you only want more ribs, tell your waitress and she'll only bring ribs, etc.....

Yes, it is kind of like a buffet right at the table - or family style. The platter is priced per head the people who are eating from the platter. You are originally brought one big platter with all of the goodies on it and people can take what they want from the platter, then after eating your first round through you tell your server what you want more of and they bring you that specifically. That is also how they work the breakfast platter.
