    Had a great trip in 8/2011 now want to plan for 11/2012 Where would be a good place to eat Thanksgiving dinner and would the Candlelight processional be ok for DS8 and DD10? Thanks so much u really helped out on the last trip

    Hi Michelle,

    I'm so glad to hear that we managed to help you with the planning of your last trip to Walt Disney World!

    The Liberty Tree Tavern is by far the best place to have a traditional Thanksgiving Dinner. Its 18th-century colonial feel and delicious patriotic plates makes for the perfect location for a Thanksgiving meal.

    There is a fantastic post about the best restaurants for Thanksgiving at Walt Disney World on the unofficial website The Disney Food Blog which you can find here:-

    You can also find out which restaurants offered a traditional turkey day meal last year on the Disney Parks Blog post from 23 November 2010 HERE.

    As you would expect, dining reservations for popular times of year book up very quickly and so I would advise you to make your advanced dining reservations at your earliest possible opportunity. Reservations can be made up to 180 days in advance online HERE or by calling (407) 939-3463.

    My family attended the Candlelight Processional for the very first time last year and in my opinion, there is no better way to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas! If you do decide that you would like to see the event during your stay, I would highly recommend that you go to the first showing which took place at 5pm last year. My 8 year old son enjoyed listening to the choir but did get a little tired towards the end.

    I hope that this information has been of help and wish you a magical trip
