Review: The New Chuck Wagon Fresh Fixin’s Food Truck at Fort Wilderness Campground

There’s a new place to grab some grub at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground.

And it might be the single coolest thing we’ve seen at Disney World in quite some time… Welcome to the Chuck Wagon!

This new food truck is serving up Counter Service-style eats on its Fresh Fixin’s menu to all the Happy Campers at Fort Wilderness from 11:00 AM – 9:00 PM Saturdays through Mondays, and from 5:00 – 9:00 PM Tuesdays through Fridays. This here’s also the spot where you can grab some classic camping snacks (S’mores!). Oh, and some of those Fort Wilderness Moonshine Cocktails, too!

But to load up on some of these treats, you gotta know where to find ‘em first. So join us on our jaunt to visit the Chuck Wagon! Though you may be surprised to learn it’s not actually a wagon at all.

So then, what is it?

Atmosphere

Custom-made to blend in perfectly with its campground surroundings, the Chuck Wagon Fresh Fixin’s Food Truck is designed to look exactly like an old school RV. Get a load of this!

And when I say old school, I mean it, as evidenced by the original Walt Disney World logos you’ll spot on the outside! [Read more…]

News: Captain’s Grille at Disney’s Yacht Club Relocating to Ariel’s During Refurbishment

Captain’s Grille at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort is one of those Disney World hidden gems that is actually quite good for breakfast, lunch, or dinner – especially if you don’t have an Advance Dining Reservation. And beginning in mid-May, guests will find the Captain’s Grille temporarily relocating to Ariel’s while the restaurant undergoes a refurbishment.

The decor of the Captain’s Grille is mildly nautical, but doesn’t have any stand out elements; so an update to the setting can’t hurt. Plus, there is currently quite a bit of work happening at Yacht Club – rooms are being updated and the convention center is also being enlarged. [Read more…]
