Things to Do at Thanksgiving
Disney is a great place to celebrate Thanksgiving and here are a few ideas.
If you like to people watch as well as eating go to one of the hotels. You can spend many an hour before or after your meal relaxing and watching the world go by in all its finery. However be sure to make your reservations be it lunch or dinner well in advance. Many of the hotels will already have their Christmas decorations up.
Last year one of the guests at the villa said she and her family went to all the countries in Epcot’ s World Showcase and learnt about how they celebrate in their countries.
Epcot is a great place to go to On Thanksgiving Day, all the Parks are very busy but for some reason, maybe its wide walkways, Epcot does not seem so crowded.
Some American guests at our villa visited the Water Parks because they said it was something they could not do in their home in the north and the children were the envy of their school friends when they said they went swimming on Thanksgiving Day!
You can start your day at Animal Kingdom with an All you can eat breakfast at Restaurantsaurus , a great start to Thanksgiving Day but be sure to book your reservation well in advance.
If you spend the day in the Magic Kingdom you can lunch at The Liberty Tree Tavern. (Turkey with all the trimmings) then you can find good seats for the Parade. You can watch the afternoon parade while you sip Hot Chocolate. If you prefer to wait for Dinner instead of lunch go to the 50s Prime Time Café where you can have Turkey for dinner with mashed potatoes and finish off your meal with slices of apple pie.
One year having had our turkey lunch at Magic Kingdom we went over to Hollywood Studios to casually stroll through the Osborne Family Light Spectacle while sipping on hot chocolate in our Christmas souvenir mugs. We used the special glasses they gave us and they turned the Christmas lights into an amazing 3-D experience. The snow falling and the holiday music maee it so very special. We finished our Thanksgiving visit here with traditional smoked turkey legs.
One year guests at our villa spend the day at the parks, came back to the villa for a dip and then headed off to the late show of the Hoop-De-Doo revue at Pioneer Hall. They said it was one of their best Thanksgiving days ever.
If you stay up late on the day and are not too sleepy you can head off to Premium Outlets where their sale starts at midnight.
When you wake up on the morning after Thanksgiving you will find that even more magic has happened at the Parks as they will be transformed with Christmas decorations!
