People have come to know the infamous Hoop Dee Doo Review in Ft Wilderness Campground; both for the show and for the great food. Most people don't know that much of the same food is available at an AYCE Buffet, right next door, for a fraction of the price. Soup and chili, a great salad bar, mar... read more

My wife has fond memories of eating at Trail's End as a kid and she got me hooked on it after we married. We must go 2-3 times a year. Located in Ft. Wilderness, just past the Hoop-de-doo Review, Trail's End is a buffet-style restaurant offering breakfast menu as well as lunch/dinner. Our favorite is the breakfast meal. Just about... More

After reading so many positive reviews about this place, I had had really high hopes only to have them crashed into a million tiny pieces... :( It's just really bad buffet food, akin to Hometown Buffet. It was a lot of food for the money, it just wasn't good. All the BBQ meats tasted like the smell of the Falling... More

We went for late lunch. The service was great. Also we liked the food a lot. My husband and daughter loved the catfish. My son and I had the chicken fried steak. This was perfectly cooked. With good gravy.

This is my personal favorite buffet restaurant that Disney has to offer. The friendly service , country western atmosphere has always brought me great joy. As far as the food goes they have an excellent spread for breakfast and dinner. For breakfast they offer waffles, fresh fruit , pastries , eggs , bacon , hash , biscuits , gravy ,... More

We did "take out" at trails end due to the high prices for the dinner buffet. Approx. $25-29 per person. We felt that was way too much for the type of food being served. They also put out the buffet food in very small bowls, which makes no sense when the entire place was full of people who spent a... More

Really liked the way it was set up, all you can eat buffet and enough of a variety to satisfy everyone in our group. We ate three meals there and it was great every time.

The food here was better than the character dining restaurants we previously dined at. Service was efficient and friendly. The manager came by to ask how everything was. Nice atmosphere. Years ago, Chip and Dale use to be there, but even tho they raise their prices, guess they can no longer afford the characters....not the Disney way.

There aren't too many restaurants in Disneyworld where you can say the price was reasonable. Great food is everywhere and so is high prices. Trails End was recommended to me by a Friend and boy was he right. Every food item I sampled was delicious. There was a big selection of food for every taste bud. As for dessert; stay... More
