    Hi! We will be in Disneyland from 11-16 to 11-23. It will be our first time visiting during the holiday season. Is there any restaurant serving Thanksgiving meal type of food during that time? Also are crowds a bit lighter during this time of year? Thanx!

    Hi there Dominika,

    You're actually planning to visit Disneyland at a very great time!  The crowds will most likely be a bit lighter than normal because the Thanksgiving crowds will possibly not arrive until the following week which is GREAT news!  That means lower than usual wait times on your favorite attractions!  PLUS, the parks will be decked out in their holiday finest and each day will be filled with festive parades and activities galore!

    I am a Disney Foodie and the Holiday Season is probably my favorite time to snack at Disneyland!  The restaurants and bakeries will feature special holiday-themed goodies and since Holiday time at Disneyland begins in early November you'll be able to snack on delicious Christmas-themed delicacies in addition to Thanksgiving and Autumn treats!  

    While many of the restaurants will offer Thanksgiving dinner on actual Turkey Day, Flo's V8 Cafe in Cars Land is a great place to grab a turkey dinner any day of the year!  I am a huge fan of their delicious and moist roast turkey served with mashed potatoes and gravy plus peas and carrots!  There's also always a seasonal "ugly" crust pie available too... which I highly recommend!

    Best Wishes,

    Amanda F.
