  1. So terribly disappointed. Artist Point was a standard in our dining line up, based on the food, atmosphere and adult/ quiet ambiance. If WL felt pressured to offer a Character dining experience, sacrifice Whispering Canyon which was already a noisy, active dining location. Now there is ZERO adult dining option at WL, which also houses a thriving DVC clientele.

  2. Our favorite “happy place” is gone, and so are we. But, we will always remember Artists Point in our hearts. No reason to ever go to the Wilderness Lodge again for dining.

  3. Artists Point was always our last day at Disney dining favorite. Great food & drink in a classic atmosphere. Our favorite entree was the salmon. Since this change, sadly, we won’t be back. There are so many character meals throughout the park, why another one? Must be the $$$$.

  4. Having made Artist’s Point our “Go To” Special Occasion venue for over 15 years, we’re saddened at this change. There are numerous locations catering to children (and the young at heart), but few adult themed offerings. The loss of this special place will drive us elsewhere, possibly off property, or to Disney Springs.

  5. I’m not at all impressed. I don’t know why they had to take a nice restaurant like Artist Point that provided for the most part a nice adult atmosphere and turn it into a Snow White meet and greet.

  6. This looks like a lot of fun and it is hard to see these characters in the parks. The price is not bad compared to Chef Mickey’s which costs too much in my opinion.
