Tis The Season.... To Eat Well :)
Gobble Gobble my fine feathered friends, and happy almost Thanksgiving, the holiday everyone forgets about until you’re eating half of a Pumpkin Pie and you’re sitting by your aunt you don’t know all that well and you think, “Why do we do this every year?”Or maybe you love Thanksgiving and you love your family and we love that too!! We love all families no matter how you celebrate, whether it's at home watching football, or by yourself enjoying “me time”, or at the Disney Parks (ya crazies, good luck and godspeed to you!).
Today, I have made an incredibly comprehensive list of everywhere you can get Thanksgiving Dinner in Walt Disney world and it does not disappoint. If there is anything Disney does well, it is holidays. There is no shortage of grateful energy around our office this time of year, because we get to work and play in one of the most magical places on earth. We also get to eat some very magical food in that place!
We're talking Turkey, Mashed Potatoes, Gravy, Stuffing, Pie, ommmgggg I'm so hungry just thinking about it.
There are all kinds of allergy and preference safe options at WDW! All you have to do is as your servers and hosts about their choices and someone will come speak to you to make sure your meal is Plant Based, Gluten Free, Peanut Free, etc. Anything your heart needs!
Let's hurry up and learn all about it so I can go eat it lol.
Some of our favorite places to get Thanksgiving food are the spots you can basically get it year round! We’re talking Liberty Tree Tavern and its twin restaurant theDiamond Horseshoe. You get the same platter of traditional American Thanksgiving food at both of these restaurants in theMagic Kingdom. Both are served Family style and come in at $42 per adult 10 and up and $23 for kiddos under 10 (Plus tax and gratuity. Always tip your servers!!) Get a sangria and save room for the Toffee Cake!!!!
Crystal Palace @Magic Kingdom also serves some traditional American food buffet style w/ our friends from the Hundred Acre Wood. This one will set you back $61 per adult 10 years old and up and $40 per child 3-9 years old.
Character Dining @EPCOT atGarden Grillis also another year round Thanksgiving-y feast. Made from the fresh ingredients grown in the land pavilion and across disney Property, this is the spinny restaurant in the Land pavilion. You’ll meet Mickey, Pluto, and the Chipmunks, Chip and Dale, in their farm best attire.
Don’t forget you can still get a massiveTurkey Leg ($15 unless they’ve raised prices again) in both the America Pavilion in EPCOT and in Liberty Square in Magic Kingdom!!!
Holiday Times :)
EPCOT’s yearly Festival of the Holidays (running Nov. 24th to Dec. 30th, 2023 for thanksgiving alllll season long) will have traditional foods from all over the world, America included! Stop around the World Showcase for aThanksgiving Crawl, if you will.
In the past we’ve seen special Thanksgiving meals served atTiffin's Restaurant andTusker House Restaurant inAnimal Kingdom. We also had a special Thanksgiving meal atSatu’li Canteenin Pandora! (It’s also possibleRainforest Cafe will have a holiday meal as well, but they are 3rd party, so!)
Quick Service locations across WDW are known for being festive in general… I mean we get the cutest fall cupcakes and desserts all over the place, but we also get Thanksgiving Dinner prepared by Disney’s culinary team *only available on Thanksgiving Day*!
Prices vary depending on location and you do need to specify how many servings you are ordering for, but you should be able to go to your Quick Service location at your Disney Resort and order ahead of time (check with your restaurant for ordering details) for pick up throughout the morning/ midday at your resort. Reach out to your resort's location for specific pricing and availability for order and pickup!

Cause some people don’t love Thanksgiving-y Food and that’s okay!!
We have some of our favorite Table Service options for a good sit down Thanksgiving meal that may not be turkey and stuffing!
Teppan Edo - Hibachi that slaps every time. We love the chefs here and the drinks are fire. We also love sushi and any kind of show that happens while we eat.
BaseLine Tap House - 21+ Adults Thanksgiving? Go to baseline, get some beer flights, get some large pretzels with beer cheese ($12) and some good charcuterie boards ($12) and share everything together! (+ The Non Alcoholic Strawberry Hibiscus soda is actually so good ($5) )
Boma - Flavors of Africa - A delicious african buffet with a variety of dishes fit for any family. Dinner will be served 3-9:30. ($56 per adult 10 years and up & $33 per child under 10)
IDK about you, but I'm quite literally starving after all of that research... I think I may be making an impromptu stop at Earl of Sandwich to try that holiday fave.
I hope you all have a very safe and Happy Thanksgiving in the parks or at home <3
