One of the nice things about staying at Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground at Walt Disney World is having a kitchen and outdoor grill at your disposal, but no one really wants to spend most of their vacation cooking their own food. Luckily there are a lot of great dining options at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort restaurants.

When dining at any of Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort restaurants savory and hearty home-style cooking is the name of the game. Still, there are a lot of different food options available to guests, and they are all offered in different dining settings. You’ll find everything from an all-you-care-to-enjoy meal served family-style, to take-out, to one of the most beloved dinner shows to ever be performed on Disney property.
When staying in the “wilderness” you need a good old-fashioned watering hole where you can go to wet your pallet after a long day in the parks. Located in the Settlement area of Fort Wilderness, Crockett’s Tavern is exactly that.
Most of what you’ll find at Crockett’s Tavern are alcoholic beverages. They serve everything from beer, to wine, to specialty cocktails. There are a lot of different beverage choices to choose from.
Even though alcohol is the name of the game at Crockett’s Tavern there are a few appetizers available. Options include loaded nachos and wings that come in 3 different flavors.
Crockett’s Tavern is open daily from 4:00 PM to 10:0o PM. Check out the Crockett’s Tavern menu here.
Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue
Since 1974 the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue has been a fan favorite. Located in the Settlement area of Fort Wilderness this fun dinner show offers an all-you-care-to-enjoy countrified feast 3 times nightly.
The high-spirited dinner show is about two hours long. While this show does not feature any Disney characters there is still a lot of family fun to be had with the Pioneer Hall Players.
The show is performed daily at 4:00 PM, 6:15 PM, and 8:30 PM. Advanced reservations are highly recommended, although same-day reservations are sometimes available. Pricing is based on the seating area category booked for the show.
The diner is an all-you-care-to-enjoy meal. The food served includes fried chicken and smoked BBQ pork ribs. Be sure to save some room to enjoy the strawberry shortcake for dessert!
Meadow Snack Bar
Whether you’re hanging out at the pool or just want to grab a quick bite to eat, the Meadow Snack Bar is just what you need. As the name suggests this snack bar is located in the Meadow Recreation area and is right by the Meadow Swimmin’ Pool.
The snack bar offers the same menu all day and provides sandwiches, salads, and personal-sized pizzas among other snack options. You can also purchase frozen treats as well as beverages here. The options include a selection of beer and specialty drinks.
The Meadow Snack Bar is open daily from 11:00 PM to 6:00 PM. Please note that this location will close during inclement weather, although it will reopen if the weather clears up before the end of regular operational hours. Check out the Meadow Snack Bar menu here.
P & J’s Southern Takeout
For those whose plans don’t allow time to relax at a table service meal P & J’s Southern Takeout is the perfect option. Located in the Settlement area this quick-service takeout location is connected to the Trail’s End restaurant.
Since it is tied to a restaurant there are no inside tables to sit at (hence “takeout”), but there are outside picnic tables you can eat at if you don’t want to take the food back to your campsite. This restaurant is located near the Fort Wilderness marina so eating at the picnic tables is a great idea for grabbing breakfast before heading to the marina to grab the boat to go to the Magic Kingdom!
P & J’s Southern Takeout serves food for breakfast as well as lunch and dinner. Breakfast options include full entrees such as a full egg breakfast or Mickey waffles. Pastries and other few other breakfast options are also available. Check out P & J’s breakfast menu here.
P & J’s serves the same options for both lunch and dinner. There are personal options to choose from such as burgers and salads, but there are also family meals available. The family meals offer such options as ribs, fried chicken, and full-sized pizzas. There are also bakery options, desserts, and beverages, including alcohol, to choose from. Check out P & J’s lunch and dinner menu here.
P & J’s Southern Takeout is open daily from 7:30 AM to 9:45 PM, The menu switches from breakfast to lunch at 11:300 AM.
The Chuck Wagon
One of the fun things to do at Fort Wilderness is Chip ‘N’ Dale’s Campfire Sing-A-Long. The campfires are perfect for roasting hot dogs and most especially s’mores. Guests are welcome to bring their own food to this event, but those that prefer food and snacks can be purchased from The Chuck Wagon.
There aren’t a lot of food options at The Chuck Wagon. The name of the game is basically hot dogs as well as a few other snacks and desserts plus bottled beverage options. S’mores kits are also available for purchase here. You can check out the full menu for The Chuck Wagon here.
The Chuck Wagon can be found near the campfire location in the Meadow recreation area.
Trail’s End Restaurant
One of our favorite Fort Wilderness Resort restaurants is Trail’s End. This is an amazing place that some die-hard Disney fans don’t even know of. It offers an all-you-care-to-enjoy meal served family-style for both breakfast and dinner. The food is always fabulous, and the cost of the meals is one of the best
This all-you-care-to-enjoy restaurant serves American favorites with a wonderful country flare. Breakfast includes such favorites as Mickey waffles, pecan smoked brisket, scrambled eggs, and amazing cinnamon rolls.
