Our Favorite Places to Get Barbecue at Disney World Resort

Whispering Canyon Food

Whispering Canyon (Wilderness Lodge)

Meals here are served family-style with platters of food being dropped at the tables while the staff entertains you.  On the platter, guests will find glazed ham, smoked turkey breast, beef brisket, as well as pork ribs, pulled pork, wings, sausage, as well as smashed potatoes, corn, and green beans!  Dessert will also be a tough choice — apple pie, chocolate cake, a seasonal fruit cobbler, or a panda cotta.

If you are visiting Disney World for a long enough time, you might want to try and eat here more than once as the menu is replete with amazing dining options!  Guests can choose between a fried chicken sandwich, fried chicken and doughnuts, a chopped barbecue pork plate, braised ribs, fried catfish, or a sampler plate with all of these options.  On the sides menu, guests will find cheddar drop biscuits, succotash, macaroni and cheese, as well as kale and collards, grits, and roasted sweet potatoes!  Guests 21 or older should definitely make plans to sample one of the signature cocktails!

Hoop Dee Doo Musical Revue (Fort Wilderness)

One of the oldest spots on property to grab food at, the Hoop Dee Doo Musical Revue offers guests a truly unique experience to have AMAZING food, as well as unique entertainment.  In addition to all-you-care-to-enjoy salad, cornbread, fried chicken, ribs, beans, corn on the cob, and delicious strawberry shortcake for dessert, adult guests can have bottomless beer, wine, and sangria, as well as soft drinks and other beverages.  Guests wishing to partake in a meal here should be aware that advance tickets are required to attend the show, so be sure to make reservations prior to arriving at Disney World!
