The Diamond Horseshoe now serving!

A new table-service dining option is available at Magic Kingdom Park, The Diamond Horseshoe serves lunch and dinner daily.  Reservations are available for dates from March 13 to May 30, 2016 for this all-you-care-to-enjoy saloon feast. It is a seasonal option in the Magic Kingdom’s Frontierland, which means it’s open only on peak-level crowd days. When it is open, The Diamond Horseshoe is usually a quick-service eatery during lunch and a buffet for dinner.

At lunch, Guests can select from a menu of sandwiches (such as barbecue turkey and a hand-carved pork brisket for adults; turkey or PB&J for children) and sides, including a fruit cup and potato chips.

During dinner, buffets include family-style platters of Saloon Salad (tossed mixed greens with strawberry vinaigrette dressing) and fare from the Ranchhand’s Feast (roasted turkey breast, carved beef and smoked pork loin with sides of seasonal vegetables, herb bread stuffing and macaroni and cheese).  If you want to experience a restaurant atmosphere with a vintage Disney feel…then put this on your list!  12791115_1099476760103525_7108845722712154188_n
