    We had a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner at Chef Mickey's...believe it or not. We got lucky and were seated in the upper room, with the windows looking out at the water, towards the GF. It was quieter than the downstairs areas. I was able to have my traditional T-day meal...turkey, potatoes/gravy, squash, etc. My dh isn't all that crazy about turkey, so was thrilled to get roast beef and dd feasted on pizza slices, mac and cheese and chicken nuggets. It was so much better than I had anticipated. As it was our first day at WDW, it was a nice start to the trip.

    Thanks! Should I assume the parks are extremely crowded that day? I was wondering if people go to Liberty Tree Tavern that day...?

    Make sure you make your reservation for early in the day. We made ours for Coral Reef for 6:00 (thinking it's called Thanksgiving DINNER.) We went in and were given their regular menu, so we asked about the special menu. The server said they 'ran out' of their special Thanksgiving menu options and then proceeded to tell us how the CMs had been 'munching on it' all day and how good it was. :rolleyes1 I was soooo annoyed!

    In 2008 we had Thanksgiving dinner at the Captain's Grill at the YC and really enjoyed it. When we booked it, we didn't know that it was going to be a buffet, but it ended up being REALLY good. I'd do it again.
