This week marks a shift from Halloween to Christmas in the Disney parks, but let’s not forget about Thanksgiving in between. Although the decorations may be overlooked, or at least overshadowed by Christmas, Thanksgiving still has a presence at Walt Disney World.
In the parks and at several of the resorts, Disney has a wide variety of restaurants that are offering Thanksgiving meals for lunch and/or dinner. Here are the restaurants that are offering meals on Thanksgiving that vary from their regular menus:
Akershus Royal Banquet Hall
Rose & Crown
50’s Prime Time Cafe
Hollywood & Vine
Fulton’s Crab House
Portobello Country Italian Trattoria
Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant
The Dining Room at Wolfgang Puck Grand Cafe

Mickey’s Backyard BBQ
Shutters at Old Port Royale

Most of these restaurants are offering both lunch and dinner meals special for Thanksgiving. As always, things are subject to change and it is best to contact Disney Dining directly with any questions or to make reservations at 407-939-3463.
A few of the resorts will also be having special recreation activities for Thanksgiving if you are staying there as a guest on November 26th.
Bay Lake Tower at the Contemporary is hosting an Autumn Festival from 3:30 – 8:30pm. They will have “fun games, crafts, giveaways and more” according to the recreation calendar.
