    What is the best place to dine at Disney on Thanksgiving?

    Hi Bhavini,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thank you for bringing this delicious dining question to us!

    Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to visit the Walt Disney World Resort. I would definitely make a reservation at Liberty Tree Tavern in Magic Kingdom. Dinner is served family style and the restaurant has a quintessential colonial America theme. The decor is charming and, as a former social studies teacher, I am always impressed with the attention to detail. This is a popular restaurant during Thanksgiving, so be sure to make a reservation!

    My second choice would be the 50s Primetime Café in Hollywood Studios. They have done a traditional Thanksgiving dinner in the past. Just stay tuned to the Disney Parks Blog for a list of this year's restaurants that will serve Thanksgiving Dinner. In the meantime, this article - Thanksgiving, Christmas Day Ideas for Dining at the Walt Disney World Resort - will give you an idea of restaurants that may offer special meals on Thanksgiving Day.

    Review the Holidays Events and Celebrations Guide at the Walt Disney World Resort. Since you will be visiting in November, there are a number of other holiday events that you could enjoy. Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party makes me dance and the Candlelight Processional at Epcot inspires me to be kinder to my neighbors. There is a beauty in the parks during the holiday season that warms my heart.

    Bhavini, I know you will enjoy the magic of the parks during Thanksgiving!
