Dinner in the Old West at Disney World

When we visit Disney World, we enjoy sampling meals at the many restaurants that are found all through the parks.  Even the the hotels have interesting places to chow down.

We have always wanted to visit the Wilderness Lodge, which is located right next to the Fort Wilderness campground.

You can drive there or take a boat from the Fort Wilderness Marina to get there.  We hopped on the boat to make our way over to the lodge,

 Heather had made reservations for us to have dinner at the Whispering Canyon Cafe.

The Wilderness Lodge is amazing to see, it is themed to resemble the famous  Yellowstone Lodge  at Yellowstone National Park.  The interior is built of logs and has a huge fireplace.  While we waited to be seated, we enjoyed looking at the construction of the lobby, it has totem poles, carvings, tepee shaped lights hanging from the ceiling and a massive fireplace.

Everything was larger than life, and the meal did not disappoint, either.  Andrew ordered a large lemonade.  None of us had seen a large this large!  Yes, he almost finished it.

Thanks for visiting and feel free to leave a comment.

PS:  Marti's friend is having brain surgery to remove the tumor on Monday, we're hoping for the best.
