This dinner was an unexpected surprise. My husband and I planned a date night at Indian Rocks Beach after he got out of his classes. Well, his afternoon classes got canceled because some construction crews dug too deep and hit electrical lines. Since we had the extra time we decided to drive over to Disney and have dinner. We were able to score a reservation for this meal a couple of hours ahead of time, which surprised me since it was Spring Break time. Though Whispering Canyon Cafe is not the most romantic restaurant on Disney property we loved the anniversary celebration we had.
My husband and I ordered the all you can eat Barbecue Platter. It is served family-style and comes with pulled pork, smoked sausages, barbecue chicken, roast beef, mashed potatoes, corn on the cob, vegetables, baked beans, salad, and cornbread. The price for this meal is $29.99.
The cornbread is very good- moist and sweet!
The salad is ok. I liked the blue cheese crumbles in it.
The meats are cooked very well and are tasty. My husband got a few refills on the beef while I was loving the pulled pork.
After our meal, our cast member came out with a huge cupcake! I didn’t get a picture of it because of the fun. She got on the mic and told everyone that it was our anniversary. She then said that we were rude and didn’t invite everybody so we would have to recreate it. She then cut the cupcake in half and we had to feed it to each other and kiss in front of everybody. It was so fun!
We didn’t ask for ketchup this time- but you should do it. We have asked before and it is pretty fun. I won’t spoil the surprise. If you have kids, they will enjoy the horse galloping around the restaurant that happens every 20 minutes or so. This is a VERY FUN place to eat.
