    Can you park at Wilderness lodge and go to a restaurant (Whispering Canyon) there if you are not staying at a Disney Resort?

    Hi Caryn!
    Welcome to planDisney.

    Yes!  If you have a dining reservation at any Disney Resort hotel you will receive complimentary parking.  You are also welcome to visit the hotels for quick-service dining, or just to explore the resort, but please remember that guests with a hotel or dining reservation will receive priority to park at the hotel during very busy times.  If you are visiting Magic Kingdom Park the same day you can also park there and then take a short boat ride (8-10 minutes) to Wilderness Lodge.  You'll find the resort boat docks just in front of the entrance to the park. 

    Shall we talk about Disney's Wilderness Lodge?  It's my absolute favourite Disney Resort hotel so I urge you to arrive a little early for your dining reservation to have a look around.  If you are arriving by boat from Magic Kingdom Park, take a walk along the waterfront, past Copper Creek Springs Pool and Fire Rock Geyser (which is a wonder of nature as it erupts on the hour).  The view over Bay Lake is stunning. If you arrive by bus or car you will walk straight into the glorious lobby - look up, look around, there is so much to explore. 

    Whispering Canyon Cafe is located off the lobby - you can't miss it!  Be prepared for the shenanigans!  It's all in good fun, and you can simply spectate if you don't wish to take part - there's no pressure to do that!  The Cast Members working here are some of the most energetic at Walt Disney World, and they'll certainly give you a rootin' tootin' good time!   And not least, the food is delicious!  Whispering Canyon Cafe is on my "must-do" list, for every visit.

    Please come back if you have any further questions, or you can send me a direct question if you wish.  We are always happy to help you plan your magical vacation to Walt Disney World!
