    My DD and I will be at WDW for our first ever thanksgiving in the USA (we live in Australia) - where could we go to get a traditional dinner within the resort area? We are staying at AoA resort. I thought table service would be nice too. Thanks

    We were there Thanksgiving 2011. We ate at Rose & Crown which served a traditional style Thanksgiving meal. It was really good! :thumbsup2

    Most of the restaurants will add the traditional Thanksgiving turkey and fixings onto their menu. If you are not going to a park that day, then you could try:

    Trail's End at Fort Wilderness buffet
    Whispering Canyon Cafe at Wilderness Lodge
    Wave at the Contemporary
    Captain's Grille at the Yacht Club

    I'm sure there are many others but those are the first ones I could think of.

    We ate at Coral Reef this past Thanksgiving. Traditional meal and regular menu. It was very good.

    We have done both Crystal Palace and Cape May for Thanksgiving meals. Both add the typical Thanksgiving food.....turkey, stuffing, potatoes.....but they also have other options because they are buffets. We enjoyed both and wouldn't hesitate to return to either of them.

    We are going to be at Disney over Thanksgiving this year, too! I have WCC on my list because I heard they do a traditional meal, but I'm not sure. Thanks for posting this :thumbsup2

    My family is going to be at WDW this Thanksgiving (2013). This will be our 1st T'giving not at home. We were thinking about Liberty Tree Tavern in Magic Kingdom. It seems like the most American themed colonial Thanksgiving restaurant. What do my fellow DISers think about Liberty Tree?

    The WDW website (at least the old, functioning one) always had a drop down menu for holiday dining. On it was a list of every restaurant that had a dinner for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and a couple of others. Hopefully there will be a similar one for 2013.

    1) I like good food at Thanksgiving and Christmas.
    2) But, I also want a different atmosphere.
    3) So, I have an off-the-wall and out-of-the-way favorite.

    4) Trail's End Thanksgiving & Christmas Lunch/Dinner Buffet
    2012 prices - Adult: $28.75, Child: $15.97 (tax included)
    . . . Seafood Bisque
    . . . Hearty Vegetable Soup
    . . . Salad Bar with Mixed Greens
    . . . Garden Vegetables
    . . . Carved Smoked Turkey Breast
    . . . Mustard-glazed Ham
    . . . Fried Chicken
    . . . BBQ Pork Ribs
    . . . Baked Salmon with Cranberry-Orange Butter
    . . . Pasta with Cannellini Bean Sauce
    . . . Country-style Green Beans
    . . . Steamed Buttered Broccoli
    . . . Butternut Squash with Cranberries
    . . . Mashed Potatoes
    . . . Corn Bread Stuffing
    . . . Pumpkin Pie
    . . . Pecan Pie
    . . . Red Velvet Cake
    . . . Soft Serve Ice Cream
    . . . Non-Alcoholic or Non-Specialty Beverage included

    NOTE:
    There are several WDW eateries with traditional Thanksgiving
    and Christmas food. I don't think there are any bad choices.
    Turkey is pretty much turkey, and I can get that at home. So,
    I go for atmosphere I can't get at home. Fort Wilderness fits
    the bill perfectly. PLUS, the price is right.
