    What restaurants on property will be offering a "traditional" Thanksgiving dinner this year other than Liberty Tree Tavern?

    Hello Nathanial!

    Thanksgiving will be here before we know it, and the booking window for making Advance Dining Reservations opens here soon! Guests staying at Disney Resort Collection Hotels can begin making dining reservations 60 days before their resort check-in for the length of their stay, up to 10 days. For Guests staying off-site, the 60-day mark for Thanksgiving Day is September 26, 2021. While most reservations open online at 6 AM Eastern Time, some locations may open their reservations as early as 5:45 AM, so I recommend you are on your computer and ready to book by 5:45 AM.

    Typically, Disney will release a list of restaurants and holiday menus closer to the holiday itself. I’m not quite sure why they do it this way, but usually, you have to book your location before those announcements and menus are published. We made a Thanksgiving visit a few years ago and so I was in this same situation. What I can tell you is that typically many locations offer either a traditional Thanksgiving Meal or offer at least a holiday-themed option. Even many quick-service locations offer a turkey dinner on that day! While nothing official has been announced, here is a list of table-service locations that have served a holiday-themed meal in past years:

    Magic Kingdom
    Cinderella’s Royal Table
    The Plaza Restaurant
    The Crystal Palace

    Epcot
    Garden Grill
    Le Cellier Steakhouse
    Rose & Crown Pub & Dining Room

    Disney’s Hollywood Studios
    The Hollywood Brown Derby
    Hollywood & Vine
    50’s Prime Time Cafe

    Disney’s Animal Kingdom
    Tiffins Restaurant
    Rainforest Cafe

    Disney Resort Collection Hotels
    California Grill
    Chef Mickey’s
    Whispering Canyon Cafe
    Olivia’s Cafe

    Disney Springs
    Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’
    The Edison
    Paddlefish
    Raglan Road

    For Thanksgiving 2018, we dined at The Crystal Palace. We enjoyed Thanksgiving dinner with all of the traditional fixings, and my husband who only likes his own home-cooked Thanksgiving meal was able to find other options. I hope one of these locations will work for your plans. Sending you pixie dust for that perfect holiday reservation!
