Do you Love Mickey Waffles and a refillable skillet full of delicious Breakfast foods? You might want to check out the Whispering Canyon Cafe in Disney’s Wilderness Lodge!
Whispering Canyon Cafe, Location
The Whispering Canyon Cafe is located inside the Disney Wilderness Lodge. Since you are just a boat ride away from the Magic Kingdom, it is perfect for breakfast before hitting the parks. If you decided to visit the Magic Kingdom, be sure to look for these little secret spots for some added Magic to your day. We were not going to the parks on the day we ate in the Whispering Canyon, so we took some time to walk around and explore the resort.
What to Expect at the Whispering Canyon Cafe
Prior to eating in this restaurant, I asked a group of Disney Moms, and overwhelmingly they all recommended it. Instead of doing some personal research, I just booked a brunch.
When you check in for your meal there is an adorable little table with Lincoln Logs for the kids to play with. My kids loved building little cabins and making friends with other guests.
The cast members are loud, rambunctious and a have a little attitude. It’s all in good fun, and there is a cute little prank with the ketchup. Be sure to ask for some ketchup and even your kids will have the opportunity to get involved.
The food is an all-you-can-eat family style buffet. If you can’t get enough Mickey Waffles, this dining experience is for you! My favorite thing at this restaurant was the bottomless Chocolate Milkshake.
Dining at the Whispering Canyon Cafe is 1-table service credit on the Disney Dining Plan.
You can expect to pay between 15-25 dollars per person during breakfast.
Whispering Canyon Cafe wasn’t for us…
Despite all the great things this restaurant has to offer, and the playful atmosphere it wasn’t a good fit for our family.
My girls are quite shy and don’t like too much attention drawn to them. The charm of this restaurant is the rambunctious behavior, and little practical jokes the cast members play. From the moment we approached the counter my girls were on edge and clingy. This made it almost impossible for us to actually eat our meal. My husband and I each traded having the kids on our laps while we tried to eat our meal.
From now on, I think we will stick with Trails End. They serve similar food and a less rowdy experience.

Great information! I love knowing what to expect in advance!
Yes, I think if I had done my research I would not have booked this dining. The food was AWESOME though! Just not a good fit with the ambiance for our family.
I’m sorry your experience wasn’t all that good. Try the restaurant inside Pirates of the Caribbean! That was on my bucket list and I really loved it!
I’m not sure what restaurant you are referring too, is it in Disney World or Disneyland? … I’ve tried the one inside Mexico. The food was amazing, and it wasn’t that the restaurant is bad, the ambiance just wasn’t a good fit for our family.
I’d really like to visit!
You should give it a try! The food was excellent.
