The family-style Smokehouse Skillet comes with pecan-smoked brisket, rotisserie chicken, andouille sausage, fingerlings potatoes, green beans, and buttered corn on the cob. Pork spare ribs, peel n’ eat shrimp, and cornbread-crusted salmon are available as add-ons to your meal.

For dessert, Covered Wagon Sundae – a wagon load of ice cream, toppings, brownies, cookies, and chocolate-covered bacon.

Trail's End breakfast is $19.99 per adult, plus tax and gratuity and $11.99 per child, plus tax and gratuity. Dinner is $29.99 per adult, plus tax and gratuity and $17.99 per child, plus tax and gratuity.

Sad to see the fried chicken is gone (for now) but Trails End is still by far one of the best places to eat on property, right alongside Olivia's.

Remember several factors weighed on this decision. One buffets are not yet deemed safe by a good section of the public. Two Disney is still short staffed. Three what can be prepared with the current staffing. Does this mean fried chicken is gone forever? Time will tell. Personally I don't care for their choices as I don't want the chicken, fried or not, or the sausage. I'll be making more meals in my RV when I'm staying in the campground.

I'm glad it's open but that's 1/10th of the food offering. Cheesy potato casserole is super unusual. I plan on returning to Disney when the buffets open back up.

They are trying to be too fancy. All they had to do was serve the ribs, fried chicken, and fixings family style and everyone would be happy.

No fried chicken, and ribs, shrimp, and salmon are upcharges.

Even without the fried chicken, it's probably the best family meal deal left on property.

I agree. Without the fried chicken it’s just not it.

Nice to see another returning dining option. I'd prefer buffet style but can live with family style. Bummed however that they took the fried chicken off the menu. It was basically what Hoop Dee Doo offered without the show. A great night was dinner at Trails End buffet and the Chip N Dale campfire singalong on an off park or half park day. Just my opinion.

great to have it back, it had quite a few cast who had been there for many years, I wonder if any of them will return.
