    Do you advise doing whispering pines for dinner after Epcot or MK? I'm not sure of the travel time to the restaurant after the parks! Thanks!

    Hi Lindsey ~

    We love Whispering Canyon Café.  The food is awesome and the Cast Members make this a very unique dining experience.

    I would recommend doing it on the day you visit Magic Kingdom. From the front of the Magic Kingdom, you can take a boat launch over the Wilderness Lodge. The ride is very peaceful and relaxing.  I would plan to leave the Magic Kingdom at least 40 - 45 minutes prior to your reservation. That will give you time to catch a boat and walk from the dock up to the Wilderness Lodge once you arrive. You should plan on arriving at least 15 minutes prior to your reservation.

    If you decide to go after Epcot, you can take a bus to the Wilderness Lodge. I would allow myself at least 1 hour to arrive for your reservation. If you have extra time, you will enjoy walking around in their lobby.  It is spectacular and one of the most impressive lobbies in the resorts on property.

    Please feel free to visit us with all of your planning questions. We're hEAR to help!

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
