You may be excited to hear that Casey’s Corner at the Magic Kingdom is reopening, or that Citricos at the Grand Floridian is reopening – as for me, I cannot wait to get back to Trail’s End over at Disney’s Fort Wilderness.

Trail’s End will reopen on July 17.

Much like when Cape May Cafe at Disney’s Beach Club reopened, Trail’s End will no longer offer their famous buffet. However, they have an all-new menu that is sure to please everyone in your family!

Here are the details from Disney Parks Blog that shared this big announcement.

Yee-haw! Trail’s End Restaurant at The Campsites at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort will reopen July 17 with hearty family-style skillets for breakfast and dinner.

Mosey on over to Fort Wilderness to start your morning with an oven-fresh pastry basket and berry granola yogurt parfait for the table, followed by a hearty family-style skillet with smoked brisket and eggs, bacon, sausage, and cheesy potato casserole. Of course, no breakfast is complete without Mickey waffles! Adults can sip on Moonshine Morning Cocktails – a Pioneer Mimosa with passion, orange, and guava juices and a Mountain Mary with moonshine.

Dinner at Trail’s End is a rootin’ tootin’ good time that starts with hushpuppies and skillet cornbread with a chopped garden salad for the table. The family-style Smokehouse Skillet comes with pecan-smoked brisket, rotisserie chicken, andouille sausage, fingerlings potatoes, green beans, and buttered corn on the cob. Pork spare ribs, peel n’ eat shrimp, and cornbread-crusted salmon are available as tasty add-ons to your meal.

But be sure to save room for the Covered Wagon Sundae – a wagon load of ice cream, toppings, brownies, cookies, and chocolate-covered bacon! Adults can even kick back with Moonshine Cocktails.

It is sad to see the buffets begin to disappear across Walt Disney World property as we step into a post-pandemic “new normal”, but just having beloved dining options return is a fantastic step in the right direction.

Disney also announced that Plaza Ice Cream Parlor at the Magic Kingdom will be reopening soon as well. Plus a brand new take-out dining option that is perfect for families – read more about the Disney World family take-out meal here.
