Visiting Walt Disney World Resort on their birthday is a dream for many Guests. Riding their favorite attractions, meeting their favorite characters, enjoying their favorite snacks, getting their complimentary “Happy Birthday!” button, being congratulated by Cast Members, and indulging in some shopping all sound like excellent ways to make a birthday magical.
And if we add to that all the possibilities the Resort offers outside the Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and Disney’s Hollywood Studios, between Disney Springs and the 25 themed hotels that can be found on the property, some of them with their own exciting dining options, outdoor activities and relaxing spa treatments, it would seem there isn’t much more Guests could ask for on their special day.
Recently, one Guest decided to celebrate her birthday at perhaps one of the most particular restaurant offerings on Disney property, and the experience was interesting, to say the least.
Sara (@saraofarendelle) posted a video on TikTok in which her friends and the Cast Member waiting their table sang happy birthday to her. It all seemed quite normal until the Cast Member took a massive bite out of the cupcake that was supposed to be for Sara, shocking her and everyone at the table. He then slammed the cupcake into the plate and threw it at Sara before walking away.

This insulting and vulgar behavior is unacceptable at the Walt Disney World Resort, or at least everywhere at the Resort, except in that particular restaurant. Sara and her friends visited the Whispering Canyon Cafe in Disney’s Wilderness Lodge. The restaurant is known for its all-you-care-to-enjoy skillets and shenanigans, with purposely obnoxious staff and jokes served faster than the food, Guests eating here are in for a real treat and an unforgettable time.

Fine Frontier Fare
Bottomless platters and chuck wagon favorites will please the whole gang.
