What are you all doing for Thanksgiving Dinner/Lunch? Any ideas in parks or even off-site? We have never been done for a holiday before and we just booked a trip.

We are eating at Citricos fairly early (4:00pm).

Still waiting to see if there are any activities going on that night. I thought the Osbourne Lights would have been on that night, but later found out that they dont start until the following night.

Maybe walk around DTD, catch the light show at Epcot or go over to the Boardwalk and check out Jellyrolls dueling pianists...or......

Go over to the MK and try to get in as many rides as possible before the huge crowds get there for the weekend.

This year will be tough for me as Im a huge Black Friday shopper. I did rent a car, so I might have to check out the Orlando area to see if I should stand in line at 1:00am for anything special!!!

I'm totally not interested in an over crowded, over priced (for the holiday) meal at a restaurant that might not have my fav items because they're doing turkey!

We'll be starting the day doing the Sunrise Safari, which is followed by a huge buffet breakfast. That should hold us most of the day, and we'll enjoy the offerings in the concierge lounge that evening. If we want anything else, we'll grab a snack somewhere.

We will be at Hollywood Studios (our kids favorite park) spending the day together...watching the parade at 3 PM (I hope the new parade includes Santa), eating at Hollywood and Vine (again, the kids can't miss this place), checking out the Osbourne lights, and ending the evening with a viewing of Fantasmic!
I can't wait! :goodvibes

Read enough trip reports to know that I didn't want to be there on Thanksgiving, so we'll spend 2 weeks, then we're leaving WDW on Tuesday afternoon before Thanksgiving and heading over to Grandma's house near Tampa.....then we'll come back on Sunday after Thanksgiving for another 2 weeks of a relatively uncrowded WDW.

BUT...if the crowds were so bad, I'd probably do anything that did NOT have turkey......Kona or O'Hana would be a cool choice, WCC next.

We are arriving on Thanksgiving (which we've never done before-always arrive the day after) and we have decided to skip the traditional turkey dinner this year and eat at Chefs De france for dinner-(we've never eaten there before)- then we will kick off our first night with illuminations- I had to drag my husband kicking and screaming away from his "traditional" Thanksgiving day. (eating,sleeping,football)

We're having dinner at LTT at 4:15. Then we spend the rest of the night in the MK. Last year it was open til midnight and we were there at the end. It gets less crowded as the evening gets later.

What are you all doing for Thanksgiving Dinner/Lunch?


After cleaning my house from top to bottom for all our guest the day before, I'll be getting up at the crack of dawn to start the blasted turkey! Making the world's best, most juicy turkey is a curse, I tell ya. A curse!!!

We are having an early breakfast at 1900 Park Faire. Then, DS is going on the Pirate Cruise from the GF. We have a late lunch for the Kona Cafe at the Poly. I do not have anything else planned for the day. I would like to get a carriage ride around Ft. Wilderness but the 90 day window is not here yet.

We will also be staying at the AKV's concierge over Thanksgiving weekend!:cool1: Are you staying in the villas or the lodge? What are your dates?

We have a 4 PM ADR for Yachtsman Steakhouse! I haven't eaten there on Thanksgiving yet so hopefully it will be yummy! Usually we eat at 1900 Park Fare.

We're going to Animal Kingdom for the day, and having an early dinner at California Grill. Then a monorail resort hop to check out some (hopefully) decorated (for the holidays) hotel lobbies, do a little shopping, and sample a few drinks from some of the monorail resorts.

This will be the fourth year in a row celebrating Thanksgiving at Disney! This year we'll be having a late-ish dinner at O'Hana! Can't wait! :cool1:

In case you're curious - first year was at Jiko (boooo); second year at Artist Point (still the best meal we have ever had at Disney!); last year at Yachtsman's Steakhouse (yum!).
