Why you should visit Trails End at Disney's Fort Wilderness

 
                                We are back to doing another "Where in the World Wednesday" post!

I wanted to try to at least 5 new things on this trip to Disney. One of those things was a visit to Fort Wilderness.  I have read other posts about how the meals at Trails End were such a good value for what you get, so we decided to check it out.

Our plan was to eat lunch here, but we were a little early for lunch so we decided to take a look around the property.
 
We should have gone for a trail ride. That for sure would have been something new for me at Disney, but we didn't!
I did however love how each horse had a signature Mickey shaved on it.
 
 
After spending some quality time with the ponies, we were ready for lunch.
 
We were promptly seated and I was prepared to order the chicken and sweet potato waffles right off the menu.  That was until our server asked us if we wanted the breakfast buffet. We didn't think that was still going to be an option, but after one look at that yummy buffet, we quickly obliged and decided we would now have "brunch".
                                                         
                                                          There was LOTS of food.

 
And even MORE food!
 
They even had praline sauce for over the Mickey waffles.
 
It's okay, I would be running off all these calories the next morning!
 
Up until this point, my favorite breakfast spot at Disney was the Kona Café.  After visiting Trails End, I believe it is now a tie. This is definitely a place I will return to on a future trip.
 
Where is your favorite place to go for breakfast on Disney property ( or off)?
 
Side note: Another first for me on this trip was my first visit to IHOP.  Can you believe I've never been there?
 
O yea, and I found out you CAN bring your dog to Fort Wilderness ( in certain areas of course). Hmm, maybe someday Baylee will get to come to Disney!

  1. We stayed at Fort Wilderness on a visit to WDW many years ago, but never tried Trails End for breakfast. We did however go to the Hoop de Doo revue and love it.

  4. We went during dinner and we were less than impressed - especially looking for healthy options. Looks like Breakfast is a much better bet! I see a yogurt and fruit mason jar there? Awesome! :)

    1. I have no idea what the dinner menu would look like, but I did notice on the lunch menu that there were a lot of "heavier" items on it. There were definitely a lot of healthy options on the breakfast buffet and certainly a lot of non healthy ones too.! I liked the variety it had!

  5. Is this place on the Disney Dining plan?

    1. I can not say because we did not have the dinning plan. It is a table service restaurant so I would imagine it would be.

  6. I love the 5 new things idea. . I might need to borrow it in Jan :)

    I would love to eat there one day, but it seems to be a pain to get to if you're staying on property without a car.

    1. I agree. This was the first time we've had a car on property. Although I do believe there is a boat that goes directly to the Magic Kingdom. You could go from there.

  7. This is one of our very favorite restaurants! The price is so good too. It's such a great hidden Disney gem.

  10. This is such a timely post - I have great friends who are staying at Fort Wilderness in a couple of weeks and I've been telling them of all the fun things to do there. Can't wait to share your post with them!
