    My family is looking to have Thanksgiving dinner at Topolino’s Terrace this year and I’m wondering if there will be a special menu and/or Turkey dinner offered? Thanks!

    Hi, Kaitlin!  Thanks for bringing your question to planDisney!

    Visiting Walt Disney World Resort with your family is certainly something to be thankful for!  My family and I are also going to be at Walt Disney World Resort for Thanksgiving this year, so like you, I'm currently thinking about our dinner plans for the holiday.  I have not yet heard which restaurants will be offering special holiday menus for Thanksgiving this year.  Typically this information is not announced until much closer to Thanksgiving day.  I recommend keeping an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for all of the latest news and announcements about this year's holiday season.

    Since it's important to book your dining reservations well in advance, especially when you're visiting during the busy holiday season, I'm happy to give you some advice on how to go about planning your Thanksgiving dinner at The Most Magical Place on Earth.  To get an idea of which restaurants typically serve a special holiday meal on Thanksgiving, you can do an internet search for Walt Disney World Resort restaurants that had Thanksgiving dinner last year.  While there's no guarantee that the list of restaurants offering a holiday meal will be the same this year, it will at least give you a jumping-off point for your plans.

    For my family's Thanksgiving dinner, I'm planning to make a reservation for a restaurant that had a special holiday menu last year.  Then when this year's list of holiday offerings is announced, if I'd rather dine at a different restaurant, I can always cancel the original reservation and try to book another.  Guests change their plans all the time, so you never know when a great reservation will pop up at the last minute.

    If I were you, I would go ahead and book a reservation for Topolino's Terrace - Flavors of the Riviera if it is available.  This restaurant did indeed have a special Thanksgiving menu last year, so hopefully they will again this year.  However, even if they don't serve traditional Thanksgiving dishes for the holiday, I think you'll still be happy with your choice.  Topolino's Terrace has phenomenal food every day of the year, and the atmosphere is perfect for a special dining experience.  This is a very popular dining location, so be sure to try for a reservation 60 days in advance.  If you will be staying at a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel, you can book dining reservations for your entire stay (up to 10 days) 60 days before your arrival.

    No matter where you dine on Thanksgiving day, and no matter which foods are served, the most important thing is that you will be spending time with your loved ones.  I hope that you and your family make some magical memories during your Walt Disney World Resort vacation!  If we can help you with anything else, please don't hesitate to ask.

    See ya real soon!
