Trail’s End Restaurant at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground is a common place to go for those with special diets and food allergies. Why? Because Chef TJ of course! But Chef TJ only works dinners there, so what is breakfast like? We wanted to find out and we were not disappointed!
We recently stayed the night at Wilderness Lodge and decided that we would take a walk to Fort Wilderness for breakfast. The walk is very easy but takes about 20 minutes. On our walk we passed several people on bikes, running, and even a few deer. If you’re not into this option you can always take the boat over to the campground.
We checked in for our reservation and were seated pretty quickly. They noted our allergies (peanut) at check in and so our server knew to get a chef for us. Once seated our server came by to take our drink orders and said he would grab a chef. We opted for some morning coffee for us and soy milk for our little dude.
Soon after Chef Robert came out to talk to us. I had looked over the “Allergy Guide” I was given at check in but still would prefer to speak with a chef because of some potential off buffet items. He told us what was vegan on the buffet. He said that the tater tots were vegan (cooked in their own fryer too), the oatmeal was vegan, fruit, and bagels. He offered to make us some vegan/gluten free waffles and said he had access to tofu. He mentioned making a scramble or a hash, so we opted for scramble. He asked if we wanted anything in it or just tofu, we said we were cool with any vegetables in it.
While waiting for our off buffet items we went up to the buffet to load up on some tots and fruit. These tater tots give Boma’s a run for our favorite tots on property. They were super crispy and the right amount of salt. I don’t want to admit how many tots we ate, just know it was a lot.
Our food from Chef Robert arrived and all three of us were given our own plate with 3 Mickey waffles and some tofu scramble. The scramble looked like it wasn’t going to be great, something about the cubed tofu usually makes me worry, but I was very wrong. This was the best scramble I have ever had in Disney World. It was super garlicky and full of vegetables.
There was zucchini, grape tomatoes, onions, mushrooms and more. This scramble was a pleasant surprise and I would 100% go back there just for that. The tofu wasn’t super firm, but we didn’t mind.
Unfortunately the Mickey Waffles were not good. All over Disney property they use different mixes for the allergy waffles. These ones were the weird dense, cake donut-like (not in a good way), dry waffles. No amount of syrup could save these. I didn’t ask what mix they use, so maybe just ask before you commit to those.
A silver lining in the not good waffles meant we had more room for tots and tofu. Trail’s End runs brunch every day until noon on weekdays and until 2 on weekends. If you can, absolutely go check it out.
