    Exclamation Whispering Canyon Cafe To Tone Down Antics

    The Whispering Canyon Cafe has apparently become a little less ironically named.

    After multiple Guest reports of a more muted experience, several Guests have begun to share the following message from Walt Disney World Guest Communications when inquiring about changes to the restaurant's experience:

    While this public statement appears to generally indicate the change is due to Guest complaints, the wording specifically implies that the "volume" could have been disturbing Guests in the adjacent lobby area and/or Guest Rooms above the restaurant.

    I'd also think that this may be an effort to become a more inclusive environment for those with sensory challenges and sensitivities. I don't really know how loud it gets in there, but obviously it was enough for them to make a change.

    Then they need to do the same at Trex, and several others.

    Has anyone been since the changes? I hope it is still "fun", just not quite so crazy loud! (and although we really enjoyed it, it was loud)

    I've been reading about this for the last week or so on FB and various sites. A lot of people are disgruntled. What I wonder though is how many of them actually stay at WL and paying the rates the rooms command. We've been staying there (and the villas) since '94 and honestly the noise level has gotten extreme IMO. You used to be able to sit in the lobby and enjoy it, not so in the last 4 or 5 years. I'm glad they're toning it down.

    The "antics' on the other hand don't bother me although we do choose the coaster that says we prefer to watch from the sideline. When they started with them a couple years ago I actually told them I thought it was a great idea, hope they keep them.
