Whispering Canyon Cafe
The uber-popular Whispering Canyon Cafe, at Disney World’s Wilderness Lodge is known for bottomless milkshakes, all-you-can-eat skillets, and a rowdy atmosphere due to the fun antics of the servers.
Asked for Ketchup? Let’s just say you may be saddled with significantly more than you need. Chatting on your cell phone during the meal? Don’t be surprised if that doesn’t last long. Drop your fork? This might be the one you get in return!
While the WCC menu has changed slightly over these past few years, guests could always count on the option of the all-you-can-eat skillet at breakfast, lunch, and dinner as their go-to must-do.
But this week, Whispering Canyon Cafe debuted new lunch and dinner menus that aren’t quite so straightforward. In a move that was not anticipated, the restaurant has removed the skillet from the lunch menu AND taken a la carte entrees off of the dinner menu. Yes, dinner is now a skillet affair ONLY! Luckily, the breakfast menu hasn’t changed as drastically…
Let’s take a look at the updates to the lunch, dinner, and breakfast menus here…
Whispering Canyon Cafe New Lunch Menu
On the lunch menu, guests have a choice of assorted appetizers (the yummy spring rolls are still available and I’m kind of intrigued by that “flash fried” Navajo bread…) and entrees, but the skillet has been removed from the options list.
Sandwiches now include pulled pork, chicken, turkey, and a “Bacon and Egg” burger. Entrees include ribs, a tuna melt, and fish and chips.
I’m just pleased that the awesome caramel apple pie made the cut on the overall dessert menu! It’ll cost you extra, apparently, but love that stuff!
No worries — the bottomless milkshakes remain!

Whispering Canyon Cafe Dinner Menu
The dinner menu has had some change-ups as well. No a la carte options here at all, and the meals seems to have turned into more of an ‘Ohana style experience where all tables pretty much get a family style meal (albeit with a few choices thrown in).
The $32.99/person skillet (which, by the way, is now called “family platter”) includes your choice of three proteins (I’m eager to see what they have available for vegetarians!):
–Kansas City-style Smoked Pork Ribs
–Beef Strip Loin
–Citrus-crusted Market Fish
The following sides come with each platter:
–Seasonal Farm Fresh Vegetables
–Herb-crushed Yukon Gold Potatoes
–Cowboy-style Baked Beans
–Corn on the Cob
Appetizers are also available for an extra cost.
Just like at ‘Ohana, dessert is included in your dinner platter price. It’s a sampler of chocolate cake, jalapeño-lime cheesecake, and apple-cranberry buckle. Bottomless milkshakes are still on the dinner menu as well, but will cost you extra.
New adult beverages are on both the lunch and dinner menus, and include: Pa’s Maple Shake — Tap 357 Maple Rye Whisky blended with Vanilla Ice Cream 9.50; Moonshine Margarita — Troy & Sons Platinum Moonshine, St-Germain Elderflower Liqueur, fresh Lime Juice, Agave Nectar, and Orange Juice 9.75; Prairie Fire — Tap 357 Maple Rye Whisky, fresh Lime Juice, and Agave Nectar topped with Soda Water 9.75
Whispering Canyon Cafe Breakfast Menu
The breakfast menu here has changed up a bit as well, but you are still able to get the breakfast skillet — whew!!
I can’t wait to hear what you have to say about the new menus! Personally, I’m eager to try the new offerings, but the loss of a classic (skillet lunch was always a great break during a day at the Magic Kingdom) is hard to take. Maybe a Prairie Fire will help take the sting out… 😉
