Trails End Buffeteria
Fort Wilderness Campgrounds & Resort
We had just
finished horseback riding in Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and
Campground and were making our way back to Disney’s Contemporary
Resort where we were staying. It was well past noon as the Disney
bus let us off near Pioneer Hall where we would catch the boat that
would take us back to our resort. It was decided that we were all
pretty hungry and after riding the trails some “good grub” at the
Trails End Buffet sounded like a right good idea.
The buffet featuring Fried chicken, barbecue sandwiches, macaroni
and cheese, soup, salad bar, pizza and Southwestern turkey wrap
sandwiches was simple but plentiful and allowed for a variety of
tastes and appetites to be satisfied. The seven and eight year olds
that were apart of this adventure especially seemed to enjoy the
simple cuisine and found their way back for seconds.
The atmosphere was casual, as was to be expected perhaps, but what I
didn’t expect was the casual service. I found myself looking for
utensils, searching for ketchup, waiting for our drinks and for the
most part serving my own table.
As we boarded the boat that would take us back to the Contemporary
Resort I began making mental notes that I would later write down.
Although I felt a little more than disappointed in the distant and
even at times absent service we had experienced I could not help but
notice the obviously good time that the kids seemed to be having.
And judging by the smiles on their faces the trail ride that I had
found to be a yawn and our stop at this “wilderness” outpost just
might end up being the highlight of their trip. So was it worth the
effort? It is the stuff that memories are made of.
