Come Peek Inside the Diamond Horseshoe at the Magic Kingdom

The Diamond HorseshoeWhile at a recent preview for Summer Nightastic, I was able to take a walk down Memory Lane.  Not only did I get to see my beloved Main Street Electrical Parade…In addition, the “now closed” Diamond Horseshoe was used as the Media Hospitality Center. I hadn’t been inside this building since I was in elementary school! Foggy memories came rushing back to me about this now defunct Wild West attraction. The only time day guests can glimpse a piece of this Disney landmark is during peak season when the building is used as a quick service restaurant.

I stepped inside for a quick second this past April while the Spring Break crowds were in full effect. It still looks the same as I remember…

Of course this month, at the media event, we weren’t offered the full menu…only ice cream, soda and bottled water (but who’s complaining). Here are some more detailed pics of the saloon.  Sorry…iPhone doesn’t have a flash so they may be a tad bit grainy…

What are your memories of The Diamond Horseshoe Review?

  • What a great website! It's been a while for me since I last visited Disneyworld. I take it there used to be shows there. Is it only open during the day for fast food or are there still shows at night?

    Thanks for the look inside!

  • Hi Alec…Thanks for the kind words. Yep…used to be a “wild westish” show there many moons ago and then the attraction closed. Now…it is only open seasonally for quick service dining…only during PEAK crowds

  • Why…you are so very welcome. I've heard rumor that it has been open this summer so if you're planning a trip soon you may get to see it for yourself

  • What a fantastic scenery… a great place to visit and have a closer look

    I remember eating here during one of our many fall/winter visits as a kid. The food was meh, but the dinner show was worth it. I think the Hoop De Doo at Fort Wilderness is an outgrowth of this.
