    We are coming to WDW the week of Thanksgiving 2014...Dinner suggestions, Mama Melrose or Hollywood and Vine at Hollywood studios? We also have one other night we are not sure where to eat. Family of 4 (2 kids 13 & 15).

    Hi Tera!

    Your family will have so much fun this year at the Disney Parks, and what a year to be visiting! With MyMagic+ rolling out to guests, you'll be able to participate in FastPass+ and MagicBands. 

    Between your two choices, I prefer Mama Melrose for food quality and ambience. I know most teenagers have bigger appetites, so you may also want to consider all-you-care-to-eat dining locations. 'Ohana at Disney's Polynesian Resort, Whispering Canyon Cafe at Disney's Wilderness Lodge and Boma at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge would be my top suggestions. All have great theming and delicious, varied options. I love traveling to the Disney Resorts to explore the grounds (and wildlife at AKL!). 

    A resourceful independent site I often browse is Here, you can see every menu on Walt Disney World property! It certainly helps when you're planning out Advance Dining Reservations. With that said, be sure you book your table service meals at 180-days in advance. Thanksgiving week will be a bit crowded, so it's best to have your meals planned in advance. You can do so online or by calling 407-WDW-DINE. 

    Let me know if you have any follow up questions, Tera. I'm happy to help.
