    I am visiting in May and am staying in Port Orleans Riverside. We are interested in eating at the Whispering Canyon cafe. Will we be able to park at the Wilderness Lodge? Last year you were unable to park at resorts you were not staying at.

    Welcome to planDisney, Melissa!

    My wife and I were recently planning our upcoming Disney vacation and Whispering Canyon Cafe kept calling (or should I say, whispering) to us. Not only is this restaurant a great excuse to visit the magnificent Disney's Wilderness Lodge, but the food here is exceptional. Personally, I'm all about the oak-smoked mustard-barbecued beef brisket and maple-chipotle pork ribs. But everything on the menu here is tasty. Make sure you try the Granny Smith apple pie for dessert! 

    Melissa, you can absolutely park at Disney's Wilderness Lodge if you're dining at one of the hotel restaurants. When you arrive, just mention to Security that you have a dining reservation for Whispering Canyon Cafe. They might ask to see it on your My Disney Experience account, which you would show on the home page of the app.

    I hope you enjoy your stay at Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside. Since you'll be in the vicinity, you should hop over to Disney's Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter area and enjoy some Mickey-shaped beignets from Scat Cat's Club! In the words of Princess Tiana, "Beignets? Got me a fresh batch just waitin' for you."

    Have a great trip, Melissa. Thanks for stopping by planDisney!
