    Hello! My family along with my parents are coming to WDW for Thanksgiving. We can't get reservations anywhere in Magic Kingdom that day, which is where we'll be. Any suggestions?

    Hi Jason!
    Magic Kingdom is generally pretty crowded on Thanksgiving Day. I assume you are talking about not being able to get dining reservations. There are a couple of things to try...first, try walkinig up at any sit-down restaurant at an "off-peak" time and see if they can accomodate you. This is the least reliable strategy, but it works for some guests depending on the time. Second, you could try getting a reservation at one of the monorail resorts for your Thanksgiving meal. If successful, you could just hop on the monorail, eat, and head back to Magic Kingdom in no time. Finally, you could just "wing" it and eat at a counter service restaurant in the park or simply grab a turkey leg from the cart.
    I hope something works out for you all, but at the end of the day, as long as you are together, the food is secondary.
    I wish you all a Magical time!! :)
