    Is Disney World open this Thanksgiving, 2023?

    Hi Heather! One of the best parts of The Most Magical Place on Earth is that Guests can visit 365 days a year! I guess that's all part of the magic! The Walt Disney World Resort is indeed open on Thanksgiving Day 2023 (including all other holidays)! Please keep in mind that unexpected closures are always possible. Any planned closures (which are very rare) would be announced. Other closures might be caused by significant weather-related interruptions.

    I am glad you asked this question because I can recommend one of my favorite Disney Dining locations! Because you are planning on visiting on Thanksgiving Day or around the holiday, you might be interested in an amazingly delicious Thanksgiving dinner! If that is the case, you should consider making a reservation at Liberty Tree Tavern in Magic Kingdom Park! I recently had dinner there with several of my planDisney friends! We had a great time! The Patriot’s Platter offers a traditional Thanksgiving Day dinner complete with turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and more! The Oooey Gooey Toffee Cake for dessert is another favorite! This is an “all-you-care-to-enjoy” family-style restaurant so you might plan on arriving hungry!

    Heather, Guests can make Disney Dining reservations 60 days in advance! Liberty Tree Tavern is very popular on Thanksgiving Day, so make that reservation as quickly as possible!

    Happy Planning and Happy Thanksgiving!
