Happy October! Have you made your reservations for Thanksgiving dinner yet? It’s time! Slots for Thanksgiving dinner, and lunch, are booking up fast at Walt Disney World. Here are some of the best places to dine for Thanksgiving at Walt Disney World. I have also included a few places off property that usually have fantastic Thanksgiving offerings too. Each listing below has a link to our restaurant info page which includes the menu, ratings, and reviews of each restaurant.

Most of these restaurants have not released a special menu or other special offering for Thanksgiving, but their menu and setting would make for a great Thanksgiving meal. If your desired Disney dining location is not available for Thanksgiving then use our Reservation Finder. This tool is free to use, you just need a TouringPlans username and password to use it.

In case you’re on a tight budget, or just want something quick, here a few counter service locations throughout Walt Disney World that offer classic American fare that might be fitting for Thanksgiving.

    Hadn’t even ever considered it before but a Thanksgiving at WDW would be fantastic at just about all of these places.
    I’d probably want to try 50’s Prime Time first, but would have to plan on coming again for others.

    This isn’t at Disney, but we ate at The Palm at Hard Rock Hotel last time we were in Orlando for Thanksgiving. It was excellent.

    Just snagged a reservation for Thanksgiving dinner at Whispering Canyon using the Reservation Finder! Thank you for such a wonderful tool! They even have it labeled as a Thanksgiving meal now.
