So where would you eat Thanksgiving dinner while at Walt Disney World? This is a serious question and one that took us 16 hours in a card to decide. First decision is traditional or non-traditional?
Disney will offer special meals on Thanksgiving day at select restaurants. Some locations include: Liberty Tree Tavern (of course they top the list since they serve the classic turkey meal every day), Minnie’s Holiday Dine at Hollywood and Vine, Mickey’s Backyard Barbeque, California Grill.
In addition, if you are a DVC (Disney Vacation Club) member they have a special members only Thanksgiving meal at the Contemporary.
Remember that since these meals are ‘special offerings’ on a holiday you are going to pay extra for them. The DVC meal is up to $70 per person!!!!
In our discussion of where to eat we through about the quality of Thanksgiving dinner. Let’s all be honest, if it does not taste like Mom’s cooking you are not going to be completely satisfied.
The last comment led us to make the decision that if we were not going to have a traditional meal we were going to have the complete opposite. And Epcot makes that easy for us (also easy to get a last minute reservation). The first year it was Nine Dragons (much better food than I expected). Since then we have also been to Via Napoli (twice) and Marrakesh.
Of course you could go ride rides or walk around Epcot – but what you really need to do is head back to the resort for some football. If the game is not on in the room check the resort bar or it all else fails head to the ESPN zone at the Boardwalk.
