    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!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
