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 meal that is served family-style.

When you hear the words trail’s end what do you think of? If the Oregon Trail popped into your mind then it’s already on the right track.

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 its 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.

For many years Trail’s End Restaurant served an all-you-care-to-enjoy buffet, but since its reopening back in 2021 the menu shifted to an all-you-care-to-enjoy meal served family-style. Even though the presentation has changed any meal served there is still full of American favorites sure to please most palates.

The buffet had been served for breakfast, dinner, and brunch on select days. The current family-style menu instead only offers breakfast and dinner options.

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 and other forms of all-you-care-to-enjoy meals.

Trail’s End is an exception to my rule though as their costs are far more reasonable than other options on Disney property. In fact when they changed to a family-style meal from a buffet the costs actually went down.

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, aka we’re doing all quick-service dining, we still will go to Trail’s End. The atmosphere is fun, the food is amazing, and the price is reasonable.

Drinks at Trails End, such as these with diet coke and grapefruit juice, are served in Mason jars to keep with the fun theming

One of the things I like to do is schedule a very late breakfast reservation for us 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 all-you-care-to-enjoy 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 then 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 60 days out. You can make dining reservations online or by calling 407-WDW-Dine.
