Fort Wilderness Campground can be a fun place to spend some non park time, whether you’re staying there or just want to explore some of Disney World. We absolutely love hanging out (and staying) here. There’s great playgrounds for kids, you can rent the Sea Raycers (10/10 recommend), grab a drink at Crockett’s Tavern then sit in a rocking chair, or cruise around in a golf cart to see peoples holiday decor depending on season.
Fort Wilderness Campground has a bunch of restaurant options here, from a dinner show [see our pre updated menu review of Hoop-Dee-Doo here], a buffet [find our brunch and dinner reviews here], a food truck that is either at the campfire or the beach [read about Chuck Wagon here, the whole burger is now vegan as is], and lastly a quick service restaurant nestled between Trail’s End and Hoop-Dee-Doo.
At P&J’s Southern Takeout they have two options for vegans. One being the Fort Wilderness Vegetable Burger and you can modify the Fort Wilderness Garden Salad by getting it without chicken. We got one of each.
The burger was okay. It’s a basic Beyond Burger patty with some lettuce and tomato. Nothing exciting. It was cooked fine, I don’t understand why Disney is shaping them into these weird tiny hockey pucks that leave you with a ton of bun though. I would get it again if I was there in the afternoon and hungry, but I wouldn’t go out of my way for it.
The salad was super basic. Just iceberg lettuce mix, green peppers, grape tomatoes, radish, and cucumber. The only vegan dressing was the Ken’s Balsamic. If you just want a light meal this is okay, but for the money I’d skip it.
During this trip we had some miscommunication with a chef about the Garden Burger at Chuck Wagon. However we have since confirmed that the burger has been updated to be vegan as is (thanks to the new plant based logos!). Because of this, I would recommend this burger over the P&J’s one since it has balsamic onions and a bbq cream sauce on it.
