    Are there any special events going on at Disney during thanksgiving? If so, what are the activities?

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, Amber!

    I am happy to hear you will spend Thanksgiving at the Walt Disney World Resort! I cannot think of a better place to enjoy such a memorable holiday with friends and family!

    Get ready to enjoy a magical time during your visit! We will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Walt Disney World Resort! New attractions and entertainment have already debuted, including Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure at EPCOT, Disney KiteTails at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park, and nighttime spectaculars Disney Enchantment and Harmonious. Delicious 50th anniversary celebration sips and bites can also be found across all four theme parks, and I cannot wait to try the commemorative dining experience at California Grill.

    Visiting in late November also means you will join us in celebrating the spirit of the holidays! I suggest purchasing tickets for Disney Very Merriest After Hours event at Magic Kingdom Park, surrounding yourself with sights, sounds, and flavors of the season at EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays, and celebrating the story of Christmas with the traditional Candlelight Processional

    For Thanksgiving dining, I highly recommend making reservations at Liberty Tree Tavern, Garden Grill Restaurant, 50’s Prime Time Café, Hollywood & Vine, Whispering Canyon Cafe, Chef Art Smith's Homecomin’, and Grand Floridian Cafe. As you plan your visit, remember to keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for Thanksgiving updates and announcements.

    I hope this information is helpful, Amber! Come back to visit us if you have additional questions and have a magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!
