Whispering Canyon Cafe

Right, I'm afraid I might have to cheat a bit here as I forgot my camera - can you believe that?! I did have my camcorder though, and I have taken a few pics with that, but they're still on it.

But, we ordered exactly the same thing as last year, so I'm going to use last year's photos!

We were seated in the bit just outside the Main Dining Room, so we were kinda out of the mayhem just a bit. I would have liked to have been seated where we were last year, but never mind! Our server was Gold Rush Girl, who was really nice, so that made up for it quite a bit!

She asked us about drinks first, and I told her we were both mighty thirsty, so could we please have 2 large Sprites?! The look on the table next to us' faces when they arrived! I love stuff like this, it's what makes the restaurant fun!


Huge Sprite (Last year's photo)

We were determined to drink all of it this year - I was the only one that got 'picked on' last year, but this year we both got one. We knew what we wanted to order without even looking at the menu, so we went ahead and ordered the Skillet for both of us.

First, it comes with Mixed Greens - tossed in apple vinaigrette dressing with tomatoes, cucumbers and onions


Then you get Freshly baked cornbread


Then last but not least, the Skillet: mashed potatoes, coleslaw, cowboy beans and seasonal vegetables, smoked pork ribs, pulled pork, oven-roasted chicken, and peel'n'eat shrimp


So good! We didn't order seconds of anything, but we were stuffed and wanted to make room for dessert. The skillet is all you care to eat, so you can order seconds of anything you like. We both love the pulled pork here, and the chicken is so tender. I gave DF my rib, as he doesn't like shrimp. I'm almost ashamed to say I ate all the shrimp. I think I only ate a tiny bit of cornbread as there is just so much food! I usually hate coleslaw, but I love WCC's!

Gold Rush Girl came over and said we both looked like we knew what we wanted for dessert, but did we want to see the menu. Nope - we want S'mores Cheesecake!!

S'more Cheesecake - New York style cheesecake on a graham cracker crust topped with chocolate ganache and marshmallows


I swear this is the best cheesecake ever! We were fit to burst after the huge skillet and the ma-hoo-sive Sprite, but I still ate all of mine! I thought I was going to keel over The cheesecake is just so creamy and I love the chocolate and marshmallows! DF took a few bites and said he had to leave his. GRG was lovely and put it in a box for us to take home, and even drew us a picture of Mickey on the box DF snacked on it throughout the week!

H RATING: 9/10 (would have liked to have been in the Main DR)
E RATING: 10/10 (he said he would give it 15/10 if he could!)
WOULD WE EAT HERE AGAIN? Yes! We love the WCC!! It's definitely tradition now to go on our first night! It helps that we love the Wilderness Lodge too! We are planning on holding our Wedding Welcome Dinner here at WCC - I'll get my FBIL to order ketchup!

Sci-Fi Dine In Lunch

Ok, I know some people don't like Sci-Fi Dine In because it can be quite hit and miss. DF loved his burger and milkshake last year, but I didn't think my chicken burger thing was amazing. DF wanted to go back, and I did love the theming, so I agreed we'd go for lunch again. I'd heard if you stuck to the basic food, you'd be OK.


The 'Tables'


The Movie Screen from our seats

We were hitch-hikers once more, in the back of someone else's car, and we were seated pretty quickly. We had been sat with a large party, split over 2 cars with us in the back of one. Luckily though, the server served us first and made sure we were good as the other party was taking ages! We ordered 2 milkshakes first of all.

Chocolate for me


Strawberry for Els


The milkshakes are so good! Really thick too. We each got a glass of water with our milkshake without asking which was much appreciated - milkshakes always make you more thirsty right?!

For lunch, we didn't want an appetizer or dessert so we each ordered the Angus Chuck Burger - Flame-broiled beef patty topped with cheddar or swiss cheese, sauteed onions, mushrooms and crispy bacon. Served with a choice of cucumber-melon salad or french fries:





We both ordered this medium with cheddar cheese, since that's what Els had last time and he said it was really good. I heard that you can only order burgers like this if they ground them fresh on the premises. Not sure if this is true, but you know the meat is fresh! I got everything on it, and Els didn't have mushrooms.

The burger was one of the best burgers I've had in a while - it was huge, and juicy with just the tinest hint of pink in the middle. Usually this would freak me out - I'm a 'well-done, burn it' kinda person, but since the last year I've started ordering things medium-well, then medium. Not sure why I was ordering it burnt now! Of course, you can order to your taste.

I was so full after it! I think we rolled out!

H RATING: 8/10
E RATING: 8/10
WOULD WE EAT HERE AGAIN? Yes, I'd like to take my parents there for a burger - I think they'd really like it, the theming is so cute and nothing like we have in the UK! Els loves here too - when I asked for his rating he said it was a bit dark and hard to see your food, which it is, but I think that's the point of the place Don't order something with an ingredient you don't like and think you can pick it out! Also stick to burgers and shakes and don't go for the steaks and pastas - they do awesome burgers. I enjoyed it much more the 2nd time around.
