    hello panel, we are going to WDW thanksgiving week with a group of 12. Is there a recommended place to eat a traditional thanksgiving meal, and will it be hard to seat all of us at once

    Hi John!  Spending Thanksgiving at Walt Disney World is a wonderful way to spend the holiday time.  Many of the restaurants at Walt Disney World do offer a Thanksgiving inspired dining experience on Thanksgiving day.  I've listed some of my favorites below:

    Magic Kingdom: Liberty Tree Tavern (Family Style dining).  It's pretty well know that Libery Tree Tavern does serve a bit of an all American shmorgasbord normally, but on turkey day, they really serve up great turkey, ham, stuffing and gravy.

    Epcot: Coral Reef Restaurant and Le Cellier offer up great T-day grub, along with Akershus Dining Hall, and Biergarten.

    Hollywood Studios: The Hollywood Brown Derby, Hollywood and Vine and well as 50's Prime Time Cafe will all be serving up a feast for Thanksgiving, with 50's getting my nod, as it really has some great mash potatoes and gravy, and of course, "Mom" making sure you eat your green beans!

    Animal Kingdom: Solely Tusker House serves a meal worthy of the Pilgrims and Indians.

    There are options available for dining at Disney's Signature restaurants suchs as Citrico's, Flying Fish Cafe, Jiko, California Grill and Narcoossee's.  All of these restaurants will be able to accomodate your party, just make sure you call (407) WDW DINE when you are at your 180 day mark!

    Hope this helps you plan a wonderful Thanksgiving trip!
