    Thumbs up Hidden Gem: Trail's End Buffet @ Ft. Wilderness *pics*

    Lou has often mentioned Trail's End as a great value, so I thought I'd share my experience... with a few pictures...

    Trail's End is just a boat ride away from MK, at Ft. Wilderness Campgrounds.



    It is the lowest price buffet at WDW. It may not be quite as elaborate as other buffets, but still good for the price you pay.

    It is a great way to escape MK crowds & mid-day heat at the parks. We went just at the tail end of breakfast, so we were able to get some of both breakfast and lunch foods for the price of breakfast.

    Here's a plate for my younger ds. He loves carbs and all kinds of fruit, especially watermelon!



    I, on the other hand, am a low carber, so you can see my plate loaded with protein... eggs, bacon, stew meat, deli meat, cheese...



    They also had desserts... pastries & ice cream that I apparently didn't get a decent picture of, but you should know that that's there too!

    Plus, a good way to let the kids have "kid time," is to let them let loose on the playground... between Trail's End and the dock.

    Here are some pictures, so you know what to expect...



    These "rocks" are playground structures... not real rocks...



    More climbing opportunities...



    One very fast slide...



    Hope you enjoy your future trips!

    We've only eaten here once, at dinner, but I have to agree that for the price and the fact that it is a buffet and you can eat all you want of some pretty good food, I'd have to rank it in my top 5 of best dining bargains on WDW property.
