Brunch at Disney World’s Trail’s End Restaurant

Welcome to Trail’s End Restaurant

Christian and a few of his DCP friends decided to have brunch at Trail’s End Restaurant near the Wilderness Lodge last week.

You can’t just drive up to the restaurant parking lot.  It took them an hour to go about 6 mikes from their DCP apartments to the restaurant.

First, they took the cast member bus over to the Wilderness Lodge, then caught another shuttle bus to the restaurant which is up in the Fort Wilderness campground area.  The Wilderness shuttle buses run every 5 minutes, and it takes about 10-12 minutes to get from the Lodge to the restaurant as the buses make a lot of stops along the way.

Don’t be late for your reservation! Allow a lot of time to get to the restaurant!

Trail’s End is a pretty small restaurant, and it’s set up buffet serving style.

The restaurant is decorated in western décor, including a real buffalo head mounted on the wall and a real the stone fireplace.

A few minutes after being seated and ordering some juice, they all got up and went over to the different stations of food.

“Moonshine”, aka POG juice, in glass canning jars.

Trail’s End serves the most delicious “moonshine” drink, a yummy mixture of chilled orange juice, passion juice, and guava juice..aka POG juice. So good!

Everything is served on western-style tin plates.

Round 1. Christian has been missing having fresh fruit while at the DCP.

The house specialty is the French Toast Bake and all their signature buffet egg dishes.  They feature huge, “help yourself” serving platters of crisp bacon and grilled breakfast sausages.  All delicious!

Dessert. 🙂

Cast members get a 40% discount on breakfast.  For that giant breakfast, it’s $17.99 guests, but only $10.79 for cast members!!!

Trail’s End is hands-down the best breakfast at Disney World!

Disney’s Wilderness Lodge lobby. Very pretty! It’s a beautiful lodge.

They stopped by the Wilderness Lodge afterwards and had a look around.  It’s a beautiful place, a copy of Old Faithful Lodge in Yellowstone National Park.
