Where to Enjoy Thanksgiving at WDW Resort

Will you be spending Thanksgiving at Walt Disney World? We may still be shy of Halloween, but you’ll definitely want to make plans for your holiday feast! Walt Disney World will be featuring special holiday menus (including favorites like roasted turkey breast with all the trimmings) at over 30 different dining options in the parks and resorts during lunch and dinner hours on Thanksgiving.

Sunshine Seasons will have quick service options available at The Land.

  1. I would be odd to have Thanksgiving dinner in some of these spots.

  2. As someone who prefers anything but the “traditional” meal for Thanksgiving, I’d welcome the change of menu! 🙂

  3. We had my fav thanksgiving at Artist Point- the atmosphere and the food just make it really special!

  4. I think Artist Point would make for a great Thanksgiving. The atmosphere really does lend itself well to the meal! Glad you enjoyed! 🙂

  5. Thank you so much for this post! We’re spending a long Thanksgiving weekend at Disney and we weren’t sure where to have a non traditional dinner. Thinking we’ll dine in Epcot and stay for Illuminations. Also, love all your F&W reviews, they helped us plan our day there last month.

  6. Glad to be of help! Enjoy your holiday at WDW!
