Located in the heart of the stunning lobby at Disney's Wilderness Lodge is a long-time favorite restaurant. Whispering Canyon Café is infamous for it's crazy and loud shenanigans, but more important delicious and hearty food. Today Disney chefs have announced that a newly remained menu is coming to the restaurant starting on March 26th. This is part of a wider transformation that has been taking place at this deluxe resort which includes the new pool area and cabins that are part of the new Cooper Creek Villas. Additionally, the resort's Artist Point restaurant has been transformed into the new Storybook Dining experience with Snow White and her friends. But let's take a look at the new yummy dishes coming to Whispering Canyon Café.
Starting with a hearty lunch option the Signature Lunch Skillet comes with maple-chipotle BBQ slow-smoked pork ribs, barbecued pulled pork, and citrus-herb chicken.
On the dinner menu, you can try the Traditional Dinner Skillet with oak-smoked mustard BBQ beef brisket, maple-chipotle BBQ pork ribs, slow-smoked pulled pork, and citrus-herb chicken. You can also pig out on The “Pig” Dinner Skillet with heaping helpings of braised pork belly, maple-chipotle BBQ pork ribs, slow-smoked pulled pork, and mustard BBQ “piggy wings.” Both of these particular skillets come with western-style sausage as well.
Sea-farers can order the Land and Sea Dinner Skillet, which comes with house-smoked salmon, citrus herb chicken, vegan sausage, and charred portabellas.
You can also feast on the Vegan Dinner Skillet – filled with maple-chipotle BBQ jackfruit, spicy vegan sausage, mustard-glazed beefless tips, and herb-brushed trick’n chick’n.
In addition, each one of these hearty all-you-care-to-enjoy skillets comes with a different assortment of sides that may include coleslaw, sautéed green beans, buttered corn, oven-roasted carrots, charred peppers, BBQ cauliflower, Yukon mashed potatoes, or roasted potatoes. You’ll also get to chow down on freshly-baked cornbread served with delicious honey butter with every dinner skillet.
