    Hello, is Disneyworld open on Thanksgiving day 2023?

    Hey there fellow Disney fan! One of the best parts of being the Most Magical Place on Earth is that it is open just about every day of the year! That’s right! Barring any major weather events or special events, the Disney Parks are open 365 days a year for Guests to enjoy! That includes Thanksgiving Day!

    Guests are welcome to check in and stay at any of the Walt Disney World Resort hotels or to visit any of the four Disney Parks on Thanksgiving Day or over the traditional long Thanksgiving weekend! In addition to the Disney Parks, Guests can also visit Disney Springs as well as Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park! All are scheduled to be open! Keep in mind that all operating times are subject to change.

    I have a PRO TIP that I’d like to share with you! If you are as big a fan of Thanksgiving dinner as I am, you might consider booking a Disney Dining reservation at Liberty Tree Tavern at Magic Kingdom Park! The Thanksgiving dinner (served year-round) is one of my favorites! Not only is the dinner delicious, but the Oooey Gooey Toffee Cake dessert is stunningly amazing! Of course, if the traditional Thanksgiving dinner isn't your favorite, there are tons of other Disney Dining locations to visit in the Walt Disney World Resort hotels and in the Disney Parks!

    I hope you have a great time visiting Mickey and Minnie during Thanksgiving!

    Happy Planning!
