Trail’s End Restaurant Closing Date Potentially Delayed at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort

The end of the trail may be slightly farther down the horizon than previously anticipated for a popular Walt Disney World restaurant than previously thought.

Trail’s End Restaurant, at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort, will be shutting down in its present form — and is receiving a massive transformation from table service to quick service. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, Trail’s End was a buffet-style experience, and has since emphasized family-style dining for breakfast and dinner.

We previously reported on the announced closing, though no specific date had yet been disclosed, other than Spring 2023.

The final day of posted hours for the restaurant had initially been April 17 (as that’s when reservations were no longer being accepted after); however, current official website hours now end on May 7. This tentatively means that may be the final day of operation for Trail’s End as a table service establishment.

  1. I have great memories of eating late night pizza and listening to the guitarist/singer here after an evening at the parks. Nice way to end the day.

  2. As of March 23rd it appears the restaurant is closed for both breakfast & dinner on Tuesdays and Wednesdays through April.

  3. Big mistake in turning TrailsEnd into quick service. That would leave Fort Wilderness as the only resort without a table service restaurant.

  4. After Trails End Restaurant closes, then there’s no reason to go camping there. We have been going to Trails End since we started going to Fort Wilderness. Since 1978 we have enjoyed family time eating together as a family. So now no sense in going to Fort Wilderness at all.

  5. Trails end restaurant gave you that old country feeling and a meal that was more than quick snack. Where you could get a complete sit down meal with mash potatoes and vegetables. It will be truly missed. Not everyone in the campground cooks.
