Summary

Howdy there, partners! Looking for a place to hitch up the horse and belly up to the bar before you head back out on the dusty trail? Stop on by Crockett’s Tavern, serving the finest ale this side of Bay Lake! Fill up your saddlebags, shine your boots, maybe even partake in a hootenanny, but please, no gunplay in the saloon.

As fun as it would be to continue the Old West shtick for this entire review, that was probably enough. We are, of course, speaking of Crockett’s Tavern, located in the only place at Walt Disney World where you really feel like you are in a simpler time: Fort Wilderness.

The massive Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground is quiet, peaceful, and seemingly a world unto its own. The Pioneer Hall area evokes a town center from an old west town with its log-built structures and horse ranch. Nestled in this town center is Crockett’s Tavern, obviously named for American hero (and Disney television hero) Davy Crockett. It was because of Davy that people can wear a raccoon on their head and not look completely insane, so we should be thankful just for that.

The tavern is made primarily of natural wood and glass, making it a bright, cozy space with ample seating at several tables. Sitting inside cannot be recommended at Crockett’s however, because out on the covered porch nearby are a handful of rocking chairs. If those oversized rocking chairs are unoccupied, it is your duty as an American (or a visitor to America) to enjoy your drink rocking on the porch.

Only the simplest food and drinks are available, although it is hard to imagine it being any other way. A handful of domestic beers and wines are also on hand, with only the minimum amount of liquor. Pizza, nachos, and chicken wings can also be found to snack on, although they are clearly not made fresh.

It is a little hard to recommend a special trip just to visit Crockett’s Tavern, but the instantly calming atmosphere of Fort Wilderness itself is something that is always recommended. If you decide to mosey on over to the campground, grabbing a beer and rocking some time away on the porch looking out towards Bay Lake can melt away any vacation- related stresses. Just remember, no gunplay in the saloon.
