    My family will be at WDW for Thanksgiving 2017, what are our dining options for Thanksgiving dinner?

    Hi Ben,

    My family has spent two Thanksgivings at Walt Disney World in recent years. We had a wonderful time celebrating together and eating LOTS of great food.

    Almost every restaurant will offer a traditional Thanksgiving option. You will even find turkey dinners with all the trimmings in resort food courts and venues such as Sunshine Seasons at Epcot.

    Once we had Thanksgiving dinner at Boma, which included turkey, stuffing and all the trimmings alongside our favorite Africa-influenced dishes. Another year, we opted for Artist Point, which had a special menu. We could have chosen turkey, but my entire family opted instead for bison three ways. Both meals were memorable and delicious!

    Liberty Tree Tavern is extremely popular on the holiday, as are many of the signature dining locations located throughout the parks and resorts.

    I recommend making your advanced dining reservations in late May as soon as they become available to be sure you can get your top choice. Thanksgiving reservations fill up fast and most restaurants can't accommodate walk-ins that day.

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel to get a start on planning your 2017 vacation. Please let us know if we can help you narrow your dining choices or offer any other advice for your family holiday. Enjoy!
