Tucked in the back of Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground, in the Settlement area, guests will find Trail’s End Restaurant. Trail’s End is an amazing all-you-care to enjoy buffet that amazingly not that many big Disney fans even know of.

When you hear the words trail’s end what do you think of? Maybe the Oregon Trail? Well, you’re mind is on the right track then.

Trail’s End Restaurant gives guests a feeling of being in a tavern on the prairie. Although the space is luckily much larger. Actually the overall space is quite large as P & J’s Southern Takeout and Crockett’s Tavern are both housed within the same large open space. The majority of the building is utilized by Trail’s End though.

The restaurant has a very country and rustic flare that is fitting for the theme as well as it’s Fort Wilderness Resort location. Inside you’ll find high beamed ceilings. While the walls are covered with such items as snowshoes, wagon wheels, and mounted animals.

Of course the fun theming doesn’t end with the decor. To keep with the rustic feel food is served not in regular pans but in skillets. Plus drinks are brought to guests in mason jars, and the plates found at the buffet are an old fashioned looking pewter.

As I mentioned Trail’s End Restaurant serves an all-you-care to enjoy countrified buffet that is full of American favorites sure to please most palates. The buffet is served for breakfast and dinner, and brunch is also served on select days.

Personal Review of Trail’s End Restaurant

As you can easily see by the prices listed above dining costs at Walt Disney World can add up quickly. When I advise my clients on how to save on dining costs on their Disney vacation I usually suggest avoiding the buffets. Still, Trail’s End is a restaurant that my family always make sure to stop at while visiting Disney.

With so many fun things to do at Fort Wilderness we almost always schedule a good chunk of one of our vacation days to stop by there. Those visits always include a Trail’s End dining reservation. Even if we plan on a low cost vacation, meaning we’re doing all quick service dining, we still will go to Trail’s End. The atmosphere is fun, the food is amazing, and while the price might seem high this is actually one of the lowest priced buffets in all of Walt Disney World.

I like to schedule a very late breakfast reservation for us (well, it’s often brunch since we seem to go on Sundays a lot). I’ll book a time around 11:00. Knowing we’re dining at Trail’s End we’ll have only a tiny breakfast in our resort room. Just enough to get us by until our reservation time. Then we think of our dining time as both a late breakfast and early lunch. We all get so full from the meal that we hardly even want dinner hours later!

If you want to enjoy a nice buffet meal on your non-theme park day, or if you want to escape from the busy theme parks to see what else Walt Disney World has to offer than I highly suggest heading over to Fort Wilderness and trying Tail’s End Restaurant. It does not disappoint!

Reservations are highly recommended and can be made as early as 180 days out. You can make dining reservations online or by calling 407-WDW-Dine.
