Turkey Time at Disney Parks

The parks may be decorated with the most festive of Christmas decorations, but that doesn’t mean you have to miss a traditional Thanksgiving meal while visiting Disney Parks.

All Disney dining is open on Thanksgiving Day, and a select few of sit down restaurants offer traditional Thanksgiving fare with all of the stuffing your heart desires. You will want to check the My Disney Experience app to find availability for you and your party as soon as possible, or you can refer to guest services inside the park.

 

Here are some of the restaurants that are known to serve turkey day deliciousness:

EPCOT:

  • Coral Reef (Lunch & Dinner)
  • Le Cellier Steakhouse (Lunch & Dinner)
  • Sunshine Seasons
  • Akershus
  • Biergarten
  • Rose & Crown

MAGIC KINGDOM:

  • Liberty Tree Tavern
  • Cinderella’s Royal Table

ANIMAL KINGDOM:

  • Satu’li Canteen
  • Tusker House

HOLLYWOOD STUDIOS:

  • Hollywood Brown Derby

Don’t fret if you didn’t think of this sooner, sometimes you will get lucky and find a last-minute reservation, so if you are really in the mood to have a traditional sit down Thanksgiving feast, make sure to frequently check the My Disney Experience App in hopes that something will become available, you can take your chances with guest services, or you can go directly to the restaurant and ask about availability.

If you can live without a sit-down meal, but still want the turkey hangover, I recommend that you settle for a smoked turkey leg. It’s filling, fast, and an on the go kind of meal that will allow you to take advantage of attractions with low wait times. One turkey leg will feed 2 people, but I have seen 1 person annihilate a turkey leg on their own.

Here is where you can find the famous turkey legs around Disney Parks:

EPCOT:

  • Fife and Drum Tavern in the American Adventure Pavilion in the World Showcase

MAGIC KINGDOM:

  • Frontierland – there is a turkey leg cart conveniently on the way to Splash Mountain and Thunder Mountain

ANIMAL KINGDOM:

  • Safari Turkey Kiosk
  • Trilo-Bites in Dinoland

HOLLYWOOD STUDIOS:

  • Toluca Legs Turkey Company on Hollywood Boulevard.

There you have it Main Streeters! I hope this quick guide helps you find your feasting location, may the odds be ever in your favor for some Thanksgiving flavor!

Erika Krystle has been a Disney kid for as long as I can remember, but my love of visiting Disney Parks started after just one ride in a Doom Buggy. I couldn’t run to guest relations fast enough to offer up my soul in return for an Annual Pass. Since then Disney has taken all my money, but has given me the most cherished memories; from watching my Nona’s face light up with happy tears as we strolled down Main Street on her first visit (she was 84 at the time), to my very own engagement on Halloween in front of the Haunted Mansion.

I’m excited to be on the TMSM team and where Disney Parks are concerned, you won’t catch me dead on It’s a Small World. If I ask to ride that, this is a clear indication I am in danger and you must send help. You will however catch me performing Random Acts of Disney (R.A.D’s), park hopping with my amazing group of impressively talented and kind friends (usually in some themed attire), hanging out by The Haunted Mansion, and ugly crying during Wishes… then begging for a Mickey Premium Bar to eat my feelings…don’t judge me.

Otherwise, I work for the State of Florida and I am actively involved in my community. I believe in empowering others and spreading kindness to people from all walks of life. I also make custom designed Disney inspired ears, etched glass, gifts, and accessories. You can check out, like or follow my work on FB, which also links to my shop’s Instagram and Etsy page: www.facebook.com/imagineering.emporium. I look forward to getting to know everyone and sharing the magic of Disney!
