    We are going on a last minute vacation to Disney World over Thanksgiving. Any suggestions on where to eat on Thanksgiving Day? All of the character meals seem to be booked up for that day. Also, any other good holiday related suggestions would be great!

    Hi Robert!  Getting a last minute Thanksgiving Day dining reservation could be difficult at this time. I would try getting on line at to see if you can find an open spot at any restaurant.  Try mid day times or late evening times as that will be your best bet.

    I suggest some of the more random restaurants such as the Wave at the Contemporary resort or Captains Grille at the Yacht Club resort.  These are great places but not always as popular as many of the others.  When doing a random search for you I did come across a 1:55pm time at Crystal Palace in the Magic Kingdom and many of the EPCOT places such as Germany's Biergarten still have spots.  Please do this as soon as possible as these places most likely will book up completely as it gets nearer to the 26th.
