Trail’s End Restaurant at Disney’s Fort Wilderness is now closed to guests for refurbishment. The location will reopen later this summer, changed from a previously reported reopening date of late 2023. P&J’s Southern Takeout mobile ordering and The Chuck Wagon food truck are still available to guests.
Trail’s End Restaurant Closed for Refurbishment
At the Trail’s End Restaurant located in Disney’s Fort Wilderness, guests could “feast on a down-home breakfast or dinner—served family-style—at this tasty Frontier mainstay.” Disney plans to reopen this summer with a different concept for the eatery.
When it reopens, it will be a marketplace with expanded quick-service options. Table service dining will no longer be offered.
Previously, reservations were suggested for dining at this location. With well-loved breakfast and dinner menus featuring guest favorites, Trail’s End was a popular choice for guests staying at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground.
Both breakfast and dinner were served family-style. The restaurant also served a variety of family favorites, including seasonal treats and desserts in Mason jars. Disney has not yet released menus for the quick-service options when the location reopens later this year.
While this restaurant is currently inaccessible, P&J’s Southern Takeout mobile ordering and The Chuck Wagon food truck are both available for guest enjoyment.

When visiting, guests may want to take some time to visit Tri-Circle D Ranch. This is the home of horses and ponies seen around Walt Disney World Resort. When guests visit, they can view Cinderella’s Ponies, who pull Cinderella’s carriage, as well as a variety of horses who often work along Main Street, U.S.A. Pony rides are also available for children.
