    Does family style meal mean all you care to eat?

    Hey there, Denise! Welcome to planDisney.

    Thank you for sending us your magical question about family-style meals at Walt Disney World Resort restaurants.

    Denise, you are absolutely right! A family-style meal is basically an “all-you-care-to-eat” meal. Family-style meals are normally brought to the table in a large skillet, bowl, or platter and include items such as proteins, sides, fruits, vegetables, and bread. Everyone in your party can help themselves to whatever they want on the serving dish!

    Family-style meals usually have a per-person fixed price, but the best part about family-style meals is that you can ask for more food as you enjoy your meal and run out of certain items. For example, if your family loved the sausage and eggs in the breakfast platter at Whispering Canyon Cafe, you can ask for a “refill” of sausage and eggs — at no additional cost! You don’t even need a magic wand to “bibbidi bobbidi boo” more food!

    Whispering Canyon Cafe is one of my favorite all-you-care-to-enjoy restaurants on property. Not only is the food unlimited, but the shenanigans are as well! I highly recommend “The Traditional” and “The Pig” skillets for dinner if you enjoy bbq. Another great thing about Whispering Canyon Cafe is that it is one of the only family-style restaurants that has a full “a la carte” menu as well. If you have pickier or diet-restricted Guests in your party, they will be able to order from the regular menu! Don’t forget to try the most delicious dessert in the “wilderness” — The Granny Smith Apple Pie. This delectable dessert is not horsing around!
