This weekend we ventured to Fort Wilderness for a weekend getaway. The cabins there are really cool and we really enjoyed ourselves.
Now on to the food! Friday night we ate at the Trail’s End Restaurant.
I started with ribs, pulled pork, peel and eat shrimp, potato salad, corn and a spoon of mashed potatoes.
Next, fried chicken, mashed potatoes and corn. I added some scallions and bacon to the potatoes.
For dessert, I had the apple cobbler…
This restaurant also serves breakfast and lunch.
You don’t need reservations, so I highly suggest you try this spot for a meal when you stay or visit. We will visit again for sure.
For Saturday evening, I booked a reservation in advance at The Hoop Dee Doo Musical Revue. I visited this dinner show 23 years ago and couldn’t wait to experience it again with my four year old daughter. She had a blast and even got some special attention from a certain performer. Suffice to say, she now has a cowboy for a BFF. Hold me.
The dinner is another all you can eat bonanza of country cookin’! They start with a bucket of salad topped with an Italian vinaigrette dressing. Next come buckets of ribs, chicken, mashed potatoes, corn, and pork and beans.
For dessert, a perfect strawberry shortcake.
The show was as fantastic as I remembered, and we had a wonderful family-friendly evening. If you have an opportunity, I definitely recommend this dinner show.
After the show, we took a hay ride (minus the hay) and toured the property for a 45 minute ride.
As soon as the ride was over we headed down to the beach – a short walk from Pioneer Hall – and enjoyed the water light parade and the Magic Kingdom fireworks. A magical ending to our weekend getaway!
