Trail’s End Restaurant

Trail's End Restaurant

After a long day on the range, there’s nothing better than coming home to a hearty — and inexpensive!! — meal! Come to think of it, there’s nothing better than starting out a long day with the same!

Trail’s End has long been a favorite among die-hard Disney fans who know where to find good food at moderate prices — even on Disney property. While you will have to travel for this food (Fort Wilderness isn’t easy to get to unless you’re staying there), it’s worth it. And stick around to have a look at Fort Wilderness while you’re there — it’s one of Disney World’s original lodging centers and had Walt’s seal of approval. There’s a lot of history here…

As of this writing, Trail’s End is a buffet for breakfast and dinner and an a la cart service at lunch.
