Thanksgiving at Walt Disney World

November 28, 2019


As Thanksgiving Day nears, chances are you’ve got turkey on your mind. It’s estimated that guests consume more than 1.6 million turkey drumsticks every year at the Walt Disney World Resort and the Disneyland Resort – that’s 2.5 million pounds of turkey. So where do you find turkey and other traditional Thanksgiving foods at Walt Disney World?

Thanksgiving is a transitional time at Walt Disney World. There will still may be some nods to fall, but for the most part, Christmas is in full swing. The holiday events and decorations will have popped up all around the parks, however the Thanksgiving holiday is acknowledged more with food than decor.

Many dining locations at throughout the Walt Disney World Resort create special meals for guests who would like to share and enjoy a holiday meal with their loved ones on Thanksgiving. Some locations offer a special Thanksgiving menu just for this day while other locations offer additional holiday specialties in addition to their regular menu offerings.

Most venues will offer the special meal on Thanksgiving Day alone. This is one holiday that is celebrated on the actual date and not for several days before and after.
