Where to Find Thanksgiving Dinner at Disney World

by Mommy Frog on November 6, 2014

Thanksgiving dinner at Disney World - Mickey and Minnie

This Thanksgiving, thousands upon thousands of you will descend upon Disney World for some quality family bonding. While Thanksgiving is a relatively low-key theme park affair, Thanksgiving dinner at Disney World is not! So while the parks will already be decked in their holiday decorations, you will find special Thanksgiving dining options at all of the parks.

Listed below are the restaurants that will offer special holiday menus this Thanksgiving at Disney World. They include roasted turkey breast with all the trimmings PLUS ...

... Norwegian meatballs and pan-seared salmon at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall

... poppy seed lavash, house-made naan, and apple-cranberry achar at Sanaa

... roasted heirloom beets with candied walnuts and mulled apple cider at Artist Point

... and many other unique dishes.

At this point, very few of these restaurants have reservations available Thanksgiving day. If you cannot snag an Advance Dining Reservation, don't fret! Keep trying in the days leading up to your visit. Cancellations do happen! And even if they don't, you can ask about availability at the restaurant directly. We've put asterisks next to those restaurants that have a better chance of walk-up availability.

Where to find turkey legs, possibly the next best thing to Thanksgiving dinner at Disney World


Thanksgiving dinner at Disney World - turkey leg

The Frog Family always likes to have a back-up plan, so here’s a list of where you can get one of those delicious smoked turkey legs in each of the Disney World parks:

Magic Kingdom® Park: the Turkey Leg Cart (Frontierland® Area), Gaston's Tavern (roasted pork shank in New Fantasyland® Area)

Epcot®: Fife & Drum (America Pavilion)

Disney’s Hollywood Studios®: Toluca Turkey Legs (Sunset Boulevard); if Toluca Turkey Legs is closed try Fairfax Fare next door

Disney’s Animal Kingdom®: Trilo-Bites (DinoLand U.S.A.®.), Turkey Wagon (Discovery Island)

Gotta run ... all of this talk of Thanksgiving dinner is making me hungry! Be sure to check out our Disney World Thanksgiving Survival Guide. You definitely need a plan if you're gearing up for the holiday crowds!

Hi Renee,

Fort Wilderness has a couple of great options right there. There is a special version of Mickey's Backyard BBQ called Mickey's Backyard Thanksgiving Feast that could be a lot of fun for families and a variety of age groups. Trail's End Restaurant is also at Fort Wilderness and has a delicious buffet as well.

My other pick would be Raglan Road if it's an adult crowd. They usually serve a Thanksgiving special for $28/pp and it's always a good time with live music and dancers, and a fantastic bar.

Hoppy planning!
