  • Thanksgiving Day dinner in the park?

    Does anyone know if there will be Turkey Day dinners served in the park, other than the DL Hotel?

    I don't know but I am sure they will be selling turkey legs as usual.

      I'm pretty sure the Plaza Inn does a turkey dinner

        All of the Table Service restaurants have some sort of Turkey dinner, as well as Plaza Inn.

            Be prepared for long lines/waits.

            All of the restaurants that take priority seating requests have been "sold out" for a few weeks now.

            Happy Thanksgiving!

                Since you don't have reservations for anything, Plaza Inn is your best bet. Just be warned that Thanksgiving is PI's busiest day of the year, bar none.

                    Perhaps all those guests could boycott the Resort on Thanksgiving and force Disney to close the parks and send the Cast Member home to be with their families and friends instead of being forced to work.

                    Can't people live without DLR for one freakin' day ?

                      Disney is a company that specializes in folks on vacation, many folks have flown in and booked hotels and other events.

                      It is also a very popular day, based on attendance.

                      Why should Disney turn away business?

                      More and more stores are staying open on Thanksgiving (such as K-Mart) or opening in the WAY early hours on Friday, which require the employees to cut back on their Thanksgiving plans.

                      I have worked multiple jobs that required working on Thanksgiving, as have my friends and family. Somebody either showed up late, or had to leave early to go to work.

                      More and more restaurants are staying open on Thanksgiving due to the demand of customers.

                      Disney has been open for Thanksgiving for decades, why should they stop now, when the trend is for more places to remain open.....

                        I second that. This is another year I wont get to be with my family.

                        Then again it's my fault for signing my life away.

                          I'll be in town for the Thanksgiving long weekend, styaing at the DLH. We have reservations for Hooks Pointe, phew, thank goodness!
                          We alternate between Thanksgiving and NYE as family celebrations at DL...can't you tell we enjoy the excitement of the crowd (and the Holiday decorations)

                            I assume they still make it clear to new hires that Disneyland is not exactly a 9-5 Monday-Friday business, and that you take the job knowing that you will be asked to work some days that you might want to spend someplace else. Goes with the territory.

                            I used to volunteer for holidays because I liked the extra pay.

                            For five of my eight years, I worked in the New Orleans Main Kitchen....and indeed Thanksgiving was always a busy day...we'd prep and set up seemingly thousands of those turkey dinners for the Blue Bayou and French Market, as I recall...I'd leave at 4:30 or 5PM just in time to go home to...you guessed it...Thanksgiving Dinner.:gladsad::blink::blush:
                            God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

                              Barry, you are such an upbeat person, and you make the intense work on Thankgiving sound very festive!
