Disney parks may be in all their festive glory with Christmas decorations, but let’s not forget about another holiday many people celebrate, which comes about one month before the most wonderful time of the year. I’m talking about Thanksgiving, of course. Each year, special Thanksgiving meals are featured at select restaurants across Walt Disney World. So if you’ll be visiting Disney World on Nov. 22 this year, here’s a list of where you can enjoy a Thanksgiving meal at Disney World!
Liberty Tree Tavern
Located in Liberty Square, Liberty Tree Tavern offers a traditional family-style Thanksgiving lunch and dinner.
For lunch, pot roast, an Angus chuck cheeseburger, and New England clam chowder is offered, among “other delicious specialities.” As for dinner, it’s a “full-on family-style feast,” with the all-you-can-eat Patriot’s Platter. The platter includes roasted turkey breast, pot roast, and carved pork roast, with, of course, the traditional Thanksgiving sides, like mashed potatoes, seasonal vegetables, herb stuffing, and house-made macaroni and cheese.
Kid-friendly beverages are also offered, including the Glowing Character Punch that’s served in a souvenir cup with a light-up Disney character. Kids can also order the nonalcoholic Patriot’s Slush that’s served in a collectible Liberty Tree Tavern mug. Finally, dessert! Boston Cream Pie and the famous Ooey Gooey toffee cake with caramel sauce and vanilla ice cream are offered.
The following dining locations will serve Thanksgiving meals for both lunch and dinner. As of Nov. 5, specific menus haven’t been posted, but if or when more holiday meal specifics are announced, I’ll be sure to update my post and let you know further details!
