The rustic Roaring Fork at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge is open again, one of those spots favored by vacationers looking for a creative, quick bite that’s above average. Located in the main building with patio seating near Copper Creek Springs pool area, it’s a convenient stop for breakfast, lunch or dinner, with spacious seating inside – or get your food to go and head outdoors as the weather cools.

Breakfast is served 6-11 a.m., and while there’s plenty of grab n’ go options such as fresh fruit, pastries and sandwiches, the new Banana Foster’s French Toast and 10-hour Pulled Pork Cheese Grits with a poached egg are worthy of a leisurely start to the day. The popular Breakfast Flatbread returns, this one with sausage gravy, ham, eggs and Cheddar.

For the first time, Roaring Fork is offering specialty beverages like the Gold Rush Latte (vanilla latte with caramel) previously featured in Territory Lounge, and now on the daily breakfast menu.

Lunch and dinner is served from 11 a.m.-midnight, and the big winner on the new menu is Chef Michael Bersell’s Brisket Burger with cheddar, cranberry barbecue sauce, cast-iron onions and frisée served on a sweet brioche bun. Or try the Grilled Chicken on Focaccia with roasted peppers and fresh mozzarella. A Gourmet Grilled Cheese features cheddar, arugula, tomato and onion jam on multi-grain bread.

Flatbreads are back with two new options: Fennel Sausage and Pepperoni with caramelized onion and goat cheese, or an Asiago Grilled Chicken topped with peppers and onions.

Fans of the popular Wilderness Salad with chicken, walnuts, apples and cheddar will still find both in the grab ‘n go area – or they can be made to order.

Roaring Fork is open daily.

Comments

  • I can only echo what others have said. Please consider adding more options for vegetarians. It would be easy to have cheese/tomato/veg flatbread as well as having vegetarian protein options for salads and sandwiches

  • The vegetarian options are already limited at the resort. It’s disappointing that you removed veggies options from another menu. I really hope you can add them and more back. This limits where we can eat with the family even more.

  • WHY, oh WHY, did you replace the veggie breakfast flatbread with a meat option? Can’t we have both? That was hands down the BEST quick service breakfast option in all of WDW. Please, consider adding the option of a veggie version. 🙂

  • I miss the quick grab sushi. That was a good switch up item.

  • Roaring Fork looks great and can’t wait to try the new menu – hopefully they’re keeping the old chili!!

  • We always stay at Wilderness Lodge and part of the reason is Roaring Fork! The food is fast and delicious and there is always a great selection. We get early and late night coffee in our free refillable mugs then come back down for breakfast before we hit the park for the day. We have also gotten great hot dinners there as well. I highly recommend stopping by this gem!

  • Wilderness Lodge is our favorite place to stay! The makeover looks great as well as the menu changes. Hope they’ve increased the outdoor seating.

  • I really wish they would serve some vegan options. I’d love to be able to go out for breakfast in Disney and have vegan sausage, tempeh bacon or a tofu scramble.
