    Hi, we are a group of just 3 adults and will be on Disney resort Polynessian and Saratoga Springs either side of Thanksgiving. Anyone have any ideas of where the best fun will be to eat and celebrate as we have never been during this time?

    Hi Liam,

    Thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question! 

    There are many options for dining on Thanksgiving at Walt Disney World. For a traditional Thanksgiving meal and setting, head on over to Magic Kingdom to Liberty Tree Tavern, which features a Thanksgiving-type feast and location every day of the year. Later this year, Disney will likely announce other dining locations featuring traditional Thanksgiving dinners. The Disney Parks Blog announced Thanksgiving dining in past years, so this is a good place to watch for news.

    I think that it might also be fun to go with something slightly different from a traditional Thanksgiving meal. You could take in Disney's Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show. This amazing show features a Polynesian feast that would be a nice take on the holiday meal. Another restaurant right at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort is 'Ohana, which features skewers of amazing meats wonderful sides. I think that this would also be a fun twist on a Thanksgiving dinner. In addition, all of Walt Disney World's restaurants should be open for Thanksgiving dinner, so you can simply choose the one that is the most appealing to your traveling party. Do make sure that you make a dining reservation for whichever restaurant you choose as Thanksgiving is sure to be a popular dining day at Walt Disney World.

    Please let us know if you have any further questions, Liam!
