    My husband and i are surprising all 4 of our gkids with a Disneyworld trip. We Arrive on 11/20 and there thru Thanksgiving, because that's a Holiday what all restaurants will be open and available for lunch/dinner without purchasing a park ticket?

    Hi Tabitha! 

    I am so excited for you and your grandchildren to visit Walt Disney World! I've been to Walt Disney World on Thanksgiving several years in a row and I know you are going to love it! There are so many wonderful dining options for Thanksgiving Day, I know that you won't be disappointed. 

    If you are not visiting the parks that day, I highly recommend dining at Disney Springs. Disney Springs has many dining, shopping, and entertainment options, it's perfect for getting an early start on Christmas shopping! 

    My top recommendations for dining in Disney Springs on Thanksgiving Day are:

    Maria & Enzo’s Ristorante
    The Edison
    City Works Eatery & Pour House
    Chef Art Smith's Homecomin'

    You do not need a theme park ticket to visit any of those restaurants. However, you will need an advanced dining reservation, which you can make 60 days in advance. 

    There are also many wonderful restaurants, at the resorts, that offer lovely Thanksgiving dinner options. My favorites are Steakhouse 71 Lounge at Disney's Contemporary Resort and Cape May Cafe at Disney's Beach Club Resort.

    When you visit, all of the holiday decorations will be on full display, so make sure to enjoy the gorgeous surroundings! You can also purchase tickets to Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, which I know you and your grandchildren will love!
