Disney World Loses the Burgers at the Magic Kingdom's Pecos Bill Cafe

September 30, 2015, 7:04 PM · Walt Disney World is changing the menu at one of the Magic Kingdom's most popular quick-service restaurants.

Starting Thursday, the burgers and barbecue will have gone away at the Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe, to be replaced by a Tex-Mex-inspired menu of fajitas and rice bowls. Entree prices now will range from $9.99-$14.49.

The Pecos Bill's toppings bar remains, but switches offerings to support the new menu, including salsas, peppers, and cheeses.

The changes at Pecos Bill leave Tomorrowland's Cosmic Ray's Cafe and the Tomorrowland Terrace as the remaining locations in the Magic Kingdom for quick-service burgers... at least for now. Before the end of the year, Disney will open the Jungle Cruise-themed Jungle Navigation Company Skipper Canteen restaurant in the old Adventureland Veranda location. Disney has not yet announced the menu for that restaurant, but it's possible that some of the items from the old Pecos Bill menu could appear over there.

Why is it so hard for WDW to make burgers and pizza right? Nice change at Pecos Bill's. What does this mean for Tortuga Tavern though (Tex-Mex offerings as well) just a few steps away from Pecos Bill's?

In the end, I think having as much variety as possible is the best route, and I do also share the concern about Tortuga, even though it seems to always be closed when I try to go.

I guess the Magic Kingdom in Orlando does have better dining than Disneyland Paris. There is a bright side!

October 2, 2015 at 3:44 AM · This seems to me like another subtle way of getting more money out of the paying guests. So many people were not necessarily fans of burgers but got them because of the price, the value of the "fixin's bar" where you could load up on vegetables and feed a large family and let's face it, a lot of teenagers would rather have a burger than anything else.
