Wilderness Lodge Restaurants
The Wilderness Lodge Resort has 5 dining options, plus the Wilderness lodge also offers room service. The Wilderness Lodge restaurants are:
- Storybook Dining at Artist Point with Snow White
- Whispering Canyon Cafe
- Geyser Point Bar & Grill
- Roaring Fork
- Territory Lounge
Artist Point was the revamped in September 2018 to be
Storybook Dining at Artist Point with Snow White. Yep, Snow White moved into the Wilderness.
The sophistication of Artist Point became a more sophisticated character dining. The jury is still out if the reimagining of the Artist Point dining is better as this Snow White dining character dining at the Wilderness Lodge.
Smokey Portobello Soup
With the revamp of Artist Point, the menu also was changed. One of my favorites was the smokey Portobello soup they served. Yes, this mushroom soup is no longer available to get on the Disney menu.
I love mushroom soup, this smokey mushroom soup recipe was to die for. The creamy texture combined with the smokey taste, made this portobello soup stand out!
The Smokey Portobello Soup is one of those retired Disney recipes I wish they would bring back. The closest I have found to a good Mushroom Soup I like is at the 1900 Fare at the Grand Floridan. Sadly I have read that Disney might retire that soup recipe as well.
