    We have reservations at Whispering Canyon for our fam. of 6. 4 kids 13,10,9, and 4. Not sure if I want to keep this or Try Ohana and see fireworks. never been to either. any advice and tips would be greatly appreciated. we are not disney experts.

    Hi Laura,

    These are both good choices, you really can't go wrong with either one. The food at both is top notch. And both are great for kids of all ages.

    Both these restaurants have a lot of activity. At the WCC, there are hobby horse races through the dining room. At Ohana, there are musical parades of various sorts. These are both great fun if you want to get involved. I'd say Whispering Canyon is louder and sillier, by a nose. If you have shy kids or family members, then I'd steer clear of WCC. I find that it's easier to avoid participating in the activities at Ohana if you're not in the mood to play.

    Personally, I prefer the decor at the WCC. The Wilderness Lodge is my favorite resort from a themeing perspective. The atmosphere there is wonderful. But if you twisted my arm and made me decide, I'd pick Ohana for you. I've made this choice because of the potential fireworks viewing that you mentioned and for the bread pudding dessert at Ohana. That bread pudding is worth booking a trip to WDW all on its own!

    Good luck with your planning. Please let us know if you have additional questions.
