Yippee Ki-Yay! One of our favorite eateries in Magic Kingdom, Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn, is awaiting a refurbishment. The famous Frontierland food stand selling Tex-Mex cuisine is due for some work this season. Starting after January 21st, 2021, immediate work can begin to update the Magic Kingdom cafeteria. Although we aren’t sure exactly what type of construction Pecos Bill could undergo, we love that Disney is keeping up with our favorite spots in Magic Kingdom.

Pecos Bill Permits

Typically in operation for lunch and dinner, Pecos Bill Tall Tale in a roomy sit-down quick service restaurant (featuring mobile order) in Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World Resort. The golden-hued interior is laced with heavy wood beams, cowboy-inspired decor, and southwest touches.

As many places do in theme parks, Pecos Bill attracts Disney Parks Guests with it’s AC cooled dining spaces and fragrant smells. Once upon a time, the restaurant offered a toppings bar laden with complimentary queso. That dwindled to lettuce, tomato, and sour cream among a few other offerings. Now it seems the quick-service space is going to undergo “General Conditions” improvements according to a recently filed permit.

“General Conditions” improvements can be as basic as paint or new lights, or as intricate as flooring, appliances, or utility updates.  Perhaps the chefs are getting a new gas cooktop? We’re eager to see what’s being changed up as construction begins and continues through to the project’s end.

Many folks don’t know that Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn is so large (at least three sprawling dining rooms) because it used to be the Mile Long Bar! According to D23:

Mile Long Bar Opened in Frontierland in Magic Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World on October 1, 1971, and closed on January 5, 1998. An ingenious use of mirrors made the bar seem like it was a mile long. Served light fare and cool drinks. Also in Bear Country at Disneyland, opened in 1972. Later named Brer Bar (1989-2002). Also in Westernland at Tokyo Disneyland, opened on April 15, 1983.
