    Is there a southern style buffet anywhere on Disney property? I know that Hoop de Doo, Trail's End and 50's Prime Time serve more Southern style foods. Do you have any other suggestions?

    Hi Kristin,

    Thank you for coming to us with your question and I'm happy to offer up a couple of suggestions while you build a scrumptious dining itinerary. 

    Have you considered Whispering Canyon Cafe at Disney's Wilderness Lodge? Although not a buffet, you can build your own All-You-Care-to-Enjoy Family Platter to include yummy items like Kansas City-style pork ribs, beef, chicken, fish, corn on the cob and cowboy-style baked beans. Our family loves this dining location for the hoopin' hollerin' atmosphere, the delicious comfort food selections and the visit to Disney's Wilderness Lodge ... a treat in itself. 

    My other off-the-beaten path suggestion is to attend the Sunday Gospel Brunch at Crossroads at House of Blues Restaurant. The live entertainment, praise and jubilant environment will likely become a favorite vacation memory, not to mention the incredible southern-style foods you're seeking. You'll find items like chicken jambalaya, omelet stations, biscuits and gravy, grits, chilled prawns, catfish, turnip greens, and an out-of-this-world macaroni and cheese. The brunch buffet was endless from breakfast to desserts. I'm sure the menu changes occasionally, but the Southern food will be plentiful.

    I hope my suggestions were helpful, Kristin, and be sure to book Advanced Dining Reservations as early as 180-days prior to arrival. You can do so by clicking the above links online, or by calling Disney Dining directly at 407-WDW-DINE. 

    Best wishes!
