Golden Oak Outpost is a great wilderness food stop. Located on the path between Adventureland and Frontierland (and Pecos Bill’s neighbor) in the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World, Golden Oak Outpost features a tiny and frequently-changing menu of mostly fried, delicious grub.
In a World where cupcakes and Dole Whip reign supreme, it might be a bit of a challenge to muster up excitement over trail mix. Thank goodness Disney knows just how to reel us in: cute packaging and a great recipe. And now at Westward Ho in Frontierland in Disney World’s Magic Kingdom, guests can pick up a portable, functional, and simple package of Trail Mix.
Something about the simplicity of this packaging coupled with the Davy Crockett Mickey label calls to us. And what’s inside also totally rocks. Guests can dig into Pretzels, Chocolate Gems (basically M&Ms), Mixed Nuts, Raisins, and House-made Marshmallows. There’s something for everyone, which makes this snack not only easy to tote around all day but also great to share with the whole family. And since there are some high energy components mixed in, it’s just the thing you need for that long Splash Mountain queue.
And can anything beat a house-made marshmallow? The answer is no. And these ones will melt in your mouth!

Hold your horses, cowpokes!
Because we’ve got a tasty new combo to show you courtesy of Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe.
Here’s the deal: you may already know (and love!) the Corn Dog Nuggets made famous in the Magic Kingdom thanks to Casey’s Corner. And now that PLASTIC CHEESE has returned to the beloved hot dog haven, you can dip those Nuggets right on into what I consider the World’s Best Condiment.
Plastic Cheese used to be available at Pecos Bill’s, too, when it was the Magic Kingdom’s most popular burger joint. But a few years ago this Counter Service spot switched to Mexican and Southwest-style fare, and the Pecos Bill’s Fixin’s Bar followed suit. (Plus Plastic Cheese had likewise been removed from Counter Service restaurants all over Disney World, anyhoo.)
But things are looking up with regard to CHEESE at Pecos Bill’s, because Queso Blanco has hit the scene! And we couldn’t help but immediately pair it up with a certain item on the Kids’ Menu, so we can now proudly present to you: Corn Dog Nuggets and Queso Blanco!
I’m a huge fan of queso blanco, and when it originally showed up on the menu at Pecos Bill’s, I was excited to try it. Unfortunately, it was lackluster, to say the least. Prepackaged. Lukewarm. Just… blah. [Read more…]
Have you heard? The nighttime spectacular Fantasmic! returns to Disneyland on July 17th! And there will be plenty of special snacks on hand to celebrate the occasion.
Look around New Orleans Square, Frontierland, and Critter Country for the following treats.
Churros, Churros everywhere! Find the following flavors out and about… the Churro Cart in Critter Country will serve S’mores Churros (a graham cracker churro with chocolate and marshmallow dipping sauce), and the Churro Carts in Frontierland and New Orleans Square will offer Sour Watermelon Churros.
Disneyland is keeping a secret that you’ve GOT to know about!
Disneyland is undergoing lots of changes and improvements these days. Y’all know that the Summer of Heroes is underway until September 1o, and we’ve had lots of chances to try the yummy heroes-themed eats. Oh, and Guardians of the Galaxy — Mission: Breakout opened, so there’s that.
We need to write a jingle in which the only words are “Secret Menu Item! Yeah!” because we feel the need to sing whenever we discover a new, amazing Disney food item that’s, like, part of a secret food society. And we have a totally awesome one for ya. It involves…tater tots.
Before you run out the door to get to the airport for your emergency Disney tot run, you’ll need to know that these secret menu items are located at Disneyland’s River Belle Terrace.
Howdy, pard’ners! We’re traveling back to Disneyland’s Frontierland for a trifecta of favorites at the Stage Door Cafe!
Seriously, this simple little spot holds more Disneyland food legends than you can shake a stick at. It’s pretty much a must-visit every time I’m in Disneyland. (I say that a lot, don’t I? ;-D) Let’s take a quick look around.
And I do mean quick, because Stage Door Cafe is a pretty darn tiny counter service spot tucked around the corner from The Golden Horseshoe. Still, it’s got some cool old-timey details outside, like wrought iron on the doors and lanterns overhead. [Read more…]
If you’re not familiar, Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe is like a magical Chipotle serving fajitas, burritos, and rice bowls with a pretty extensive toppings bar in Frontierland. We also give it high marks for the delicious mini churros with a side of chocolate sauce!
It’s located right at the corner of Adventureland and Frontierland with a ton of indoor seating, so it’s a great place to relax and enjoy lunch — and maybe dry off after a trip through the Briar Patch at Splash Mountain!
Who’s up for some CHURROS?
We sure are! (Then again, when aren’t we?!) So our Magic Kingdom stop today is Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe in Frontierland!
Perhaps you were expecting a visit to the Frontierland Churro Cart or the Storybook Pretzel Cart? Fret not, you can still find them there, along with Mickey Pretzels and cold drinks to wash down your snack of choice. But when the menu at Pecos Bill’s underwent a complete change from burgers-and-fries to Mexican fare, Churros suddenly appeared as a dessert option here as well (along with some no-longer-available Sopaipillas).
The take is a bit different, though, at the Tall Tale Inn, so we’re here to have a peek… and a bite or two, of course .
Here we go!
Of course, Churros have been a long-time favorite of ours (and possibly yours, too). They’re a go-to snack for many guests in both Disney World and Disneyland. So it wasn’t a huge surprise to spot Churros on the updated Pecos Bill menu. [Read more…]
If you’re heading down to Walt Disney World during the busy Spring season, you’ve got another table service option in Magic Kingdom.
We’re talking about Diamond Horseshoe in Magic Kingdom’s Frontierland!
This spot has been around forever — and shares pedigree with a similar spot, The Golden Horseshoe, in Disneyland. But in Walt Disney World, we usually only see Diamond Horseshoe open at the very busiest times of the year (think Holidays or Summer). When it is opened, it’s usually for quick service lunch. Even more rarely, you’ll find a dinner buffet. But today, we’re sharing something completely new!
From from March 13 to May 30, you can book an advance dining reservation to enjoy all-you-care-to-enjoy dining at Diamond Horseshoe for both Lunch and Dinner. [EDITOR’S UPDATE: Please note that since this article was originally published, this dining opportunity has been extended through September 10, 2016.]
This is not a buffet; the meal is served in courses, comes plated, and includes a beverage. However, you’ll be able to choose from various entrees and desserts (appetizers are standard). Here are a few more details.
Guests begin their meal with complimentary breadservice — and it’s Cornbread!!! Ah. Disney cornbread is the BEST. Then your first course will be a Frontier Salad, which includes Greens, Tomatoes, Roasted Corn, and Cornbread Croutons. Chipotle Ranch Dressing completes the plate. [Read more…]
