    Aloha! We’re planning to celebrate Thanksgiving at Disneyland this year and wanted to know what special events were planned and where the various Thanksgiving feasts will be taking place. Appreciate the help! Chris and Quinn

    Aloha, Christopher!

    Welcome back to planDisney! I am so excited that you'll be giving thanks at the Disneyland Resort this year. I'm always thankful to be on vacation, no matter the season!

    It's great that you're already thinking about your dining options for Thanksgiving Day. Dining reservations are always a good idea, but on holidays they are absolutely essential! There isn't any official word on specific offerings just yet, but your dining reservation window opens 60 days in advance, so it's a good idea to have a plan. Last year the options included:

    All of these locations accept reservations and I would start checking on September 24, 2023, right at 6:00 AM EST for those reservations to open. They don't always open reservations right away, so if you don't see any then keep checking! Hopefully, it won't be too long before the Disney Parks Blog shares more details about the menu plans!

    Don't forget, you always have the option of eating at the quick-service dining locations around the parks! Flo's V8 Cafe has had some great Thanksgiving menu options in the past, and you can place your mobile order on the Disneyland Mobile App to help reduce your wait time. You can even order hours ahead and pick a return time for when you're hungry if you're worried about it being busy later!

    If you save room for dessert, I highly recommend that you visit the Holiday Foods Marketplace for the Festival of the Holidays at Disney California Adventure Park! From festive drinks to sip to delicious treats, it's the perfect place to make sure you're ringing in the holiday season in the sweetest way possible.

    Whew! That's a lot of details about food options, Chris. I hope you're getting excited about your upcoming trip! Let me know if you have any other questions, I'd be glad to help...right after I go get a snack, I'm suddenly very hungry!

    Keep moving forward!
