One of my favorite places to grab a bite to eat is the Whispering Canyon Café located at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge. Good food and a good time go hand in hand here! The good time can be attributed to the sassy cast members that this restaurant is known for. I still remember my grandparents asking for the largest glass of water they had and the cast member bringing them a huge cast-iron pot with two straws! There have been some additions to the fine frontier fare menu. Starting on March 12, all-you-care-to-enjoy signature skillets are available for lunch and dinner. Breakfast skillets will also be available starting on March 26.
The All-You-Care-To-Enjoy Signature Skillet is on the lunch menu. This tasty skillet includes maple-chipotle barbecue slow-smoked pork ribs, barbecued pulled pork and citrus-herb chicken. The sides served with this skillet includes mashed Yukon potatoes, buttered corn, charred carrots, roasted peppers, and sautéed green beans.
The dinner menu has a whopping 4 different skillets from which you may choose! Each dinner skillet is served with baked cornbread and honey butter which is just absolutely amazing!
The Traditional Skillet includes oak-smoked mustard-barbecue beef brisket, maple-chipotle pork ribs, slow-smoked pulled pork, and citrus-herb chicken. The Pig Skillet includes braised pork belly, maple-chipotle pork ribs, slow-smoked pulled pork, and mustard-barbecue ‘piggy wings’. Both skillets are also served with western-style sausage, mashed Yukon potatoes, buttered corn, and sautéed green beans.
The Land and Sea Skillet includes house-smoked salmon, citrus-herb chicken, spicy vegan sausage, charred portobello, barbecue cauliflower, roasted potatoes, sautéed green beans, and over-roasted carrots.
The Plant-based Skillet includes maple-chipotle barbecue jackfruit, spicy sausage, mustard-glazed beefless tips, herb-brushed Trick’n Chick’n, roasted potatoes, oven roasted carrots, sautéed green beans, and charred peppers.
Desserts and Drinks
The apple pie is the perfect dessert for those craving something a little sweet after their meal! This slice of pie comes dusted with powdered sugar and is served with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream. It is the perfect end to your meal!
There are also newly-themed cocktails that you can choose from as well for those wanting to indulge! The Bourbon Cowboy comes garnished with apple slices and is the perfect pairing for any of the new lunch or dinner skillets. There is also a selection of wines and draft beers available.
Breakfast Skillets – Available Starting March 26
There will be three new breakfast skillets available starting on March 26 which is great news for all you breakfast lovers out there!
The Heritage Skillet includes country potatoes, hickory-smoked bacon, and pork sausage links. The Carnivore Skillet comes with house-smoked ham, hickory-smoked bacon, pork sausage links, and oak-smoked beef brisket. Both choices also include house-made buttermilk-cheddar biscuits, scrambled eggs, and Mickey Waffles!
For those that like to start their day with something on the lighter side, there is a skillet just for you! The Lighter Side Breakfast Skillet includes Bircher Muesli (Swiss oatmeal), egg white spinach frittata, turkey bacon, turkey sausage, country potatoes, fresh fruit, yogurt, and (of course!) Mickey Waffles.
