    Traveling Sept 2016 to WDW, flying into Orlando at 3:30pm using DME and are hoping to get an ADR at Whispering Canyon Cafe at Wilderness around 8pm. Will this give us enough time? And how will we get from AOA Resort to Wilderness for our reservation? Thx!!

    Greetings Miranda, welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, we're so glad you're here! I just love Whispering Canyon Cafe at Disney's Wilderness Lodge Resort, which happens to be my favorite Disney Resort hotel! I believe an 8 PM dining reservation gives you ample time to arrive at Whispering Canyon Cafe.

    Disney Bus Transportation provides complimentary bus service from Disney's Art of Animation Resort to anywhere at Walt Disney World Resort. You can reach Disney's Wilderness Lodge Resort a variety of ways, including taking a cab, but here is my personal recommendation for the most direct route. From Disney's Art of Animation Resort, take the bus marked DISNEY SPRINGS where you can switch buses to the one labeled DISNEYS WILDERNESS LODGE. This bus will take you right to the main entrance of the resort hotel. Once inside the grand lobby, Whispering Canyon Cafe is immediately on your left.

    My Disney Experience is a great planning tool for complete customization of your Dining Reservations, FastPass+selections and personalization of your MagicBands. Link your reservation to begin your planning.

    After dinner at Whispering Canyon Cafe, feel free to explore the towering totem poles, brilliant headdresses and massive 82-foot tall fireplace which authentically replicate the American Great Northwest. I enjoy the rocking chairs in front of "The Grand Fireplace" which replicates the rock structure and strata of the Grand Canyon. There is even a "Hidden Mickey" there too.

    Miranda, thank you for consulting us once again, and we greatly look forward to assisting you in the near future.
