If a post on DisneyDining.com is correct, the high spirited shenanigans at Whispering Canyon in Disney's Wilderness Lodge are over.
If you never ate at this ironically named restaurant, you really missed out on a whole lot of fun.
It was a wild and woolly hoot-n-nanny of a place. It was staffed by crazy servers that engaged with you and your party in surprising and unexpected ways. Loud and raucous laughter rolled up from the dining area proving that there was really no "Whispering" going on in this canyon of a lobby.
I remember taking a bunch of friends to dinner there one night. They were visiting from Pennsylvania and this was their first visit to Walt Disney World. We picked this spot for the very reason that over active kids would not be any problem at all in this dining room. They are college friends and at the time their four kids ranged in age between 7 and 14. It was the 7 year-olds birthday and when the server came out with his birthday cake he make a big fuss loudly announcing the event and asked the entire restaurant to sing "Happy Birthday".
Just after he got the singing started - right there in front of the Birthday Boy, the server scarfed down the entire Mickey Mouse Birthday cupcake getting as much of it on his face as in his mouth.
Young Master Charlie was LIVID! IT WAS HILARIOUS! Of course, just off to the side there was another birthday cupcake waiting for Charlie, but the memories of that stolen cupcake, and the look on Charlie’s face will be a memory that lasts way longer than the taste of that cake.
I can understand how these sorts of goings on may not have been to everyone's tastes, but with so many other dining options at WDW - they frankly could have gone somewhere else.
I'm wondering if any of you have stories you'd like to share about memories of dining at Whispering Canyon.
