Trail’s End Restaurant Reopening on July 17 at Walt Disney World

Starting July 17th, guests to Walt Disney World can head to Fort Wilderness and experience a fan-favorite restaurant in a new way as the popular buffet is reopening as a family-style eatery.

What’s Happening:

  • A post from the Disney Parks Blog has revealed that Trail’s End Restaurant at The Campsites at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort will reopen July 17 with hearty family-style skillets, reopening once again for breakfast and dinner.
  • Guests can head to Fort Wilderness to start their morning with an oven-fresh pastry basket and berry granola yogurt parfait for the table, followed by a hearty family-style skillet with smoked brisket and eggs, bacon, sausage, and cheesy potato casserole, and of course, Mickey waffles! Adults can sip on Moonshine Morning Cocktails – a Pioneer Mimosa with passion, orange, and guava juices and a Mountain Mary with moonshine.

  • Dinner at Trail’s End Restaurant is a rootin’ tootin’ good time that starts with hushpuppies and skillet cornbread with a chopped garden salad for the table. The family-style Smokehouse Skillet comes with pecan-smoked brisket, rotisserie chicken, andouille sausage, fingerlings potatoes, green beans, and buttered corn on the cob. Pork spare ribs, peel n’ eat shrimp, and cornbread-crusted salmon are available as tasty add-ons to your meal.
  • But be sure to save room for the Covered Wagon Sundae – a wagon load of ice cream, toppings, brownies, cookies, and chocolate-covered bacon! Adults can even kick back with Moonshine Cocktails.
  • Visitors familiar with Trails End at Fort Wilderness may recall that the restaurant was formerly a buffet, but the change has been made into a family style restaurant where individual skillets are shared amongst the table.
  • However, noticeably absent from the announcement is the phrase “All you care to eat” and it is unclear at this time if the unlimited buffet spirit will continue.
  • Also noticeably missing, a signature favorite from the restaurant, Fried Chicken. Perhaps this will be another situation similar to when Ohana announced they were reopening without their signature noodles and the fan outcry was so loud, the noodles are slated to return.
