Q: We are going to be at Walt Disney World on Thanksgiving Day, do you have any ideas on where we could go to get a traditional Thanksgiving meal? 

A: If you’re lucky to be spending November 23rd at Walt Disney World but don’t want to miss out on the classic Thanksgiving feast with all the trimmings, Disney has announced that the following restaurants will be serving up a special meal on Thanksgiving Day.

  • Akershus Royal Banquet Hall – Epcot– Lunch and dinner
  • Biergarten Restaurant -Epcot– Lunch and dinner
  • Chef Mickey’s –Disney’s Contemporary Resort– Dinner only
  • Coral Reef Restaurant – Epcot– Lunch and dinner
  • Jiko – The Cooking Place – Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge – Dinner only
  • Le Cellier Steakhouse –Epcot –  Lunch and dinner
  • Olivia’s Cafe – Disney’s Old Key West Resort – Lunch and dinner
  • The Wave… of American Flavors – Disney’s Contemporary Resort– Lunch and dinner
  • Whispering Canyon Cafe – Disney’s Wilderness Lodge – Lunch and dinner

The key to Thanksgiving dining at Disney is to make your reservations as soon as possible.  Since the number of restaurants are limited, dining slots can be very hard to come by.  Reservations can be made via My Disney Experience or by calling 407.WDW.DINE.  Can’t get the reservation you want? Keep monitoring My Disney Experience daily for cancellations or changes in availability.

In addition, there are a handful of Disney Springs restaurants that usually offer Thanksgiving meals but these are typically announced a little bit closer to the holidays.  Keep following along with Chip and Co and Disney Addicts for the latest updates regarding Thanksgiving at Disney.
