    Hello! We have an ADR for Whispering Canyon and will be coming from Animal Kingdom possibly with our personal car. Can you tell me how far away the two are from each other? Thanks!

    Hi, Alyssa!

    A day at Disney's Animal Kingdom followed by dinner at Whispering Canyon is just about the perfect Disney day! You have done some wonderful planning with this itinerary. 

    Your drive from the park to Disney's Wilderness Lodge is about 7 miles, and will take about 15 minutes. (Allow extra time for traffic!) When you arrive at Wilderness Lodge, let the friendly security guard know you are there for dinner and you will be directed to guest parking. When you enter this beautiful resort, Whispering Canyon Cafe will be on the left side. If you are a few minutes early, take time to explore the amazing lobby, gift shop, and the lovely landscaping at the pool area. 

    If you decide to use Disney transportation, there is a bus that will drop you off at Wilderness Lodge. If you choose this option, allow time for the bus to arrive and travel time will be a bit longer. Allow about 50-60 minute travel time in total. 

    At dinner, you can choose from the regular menu, or you can order the all-you-care-to-enjoy Skillet feast that does not disappoint! The servers here are a lot of fun, so sit back and enjoy the evening!
