Default Thanksgiving

Hey gang .. been a long time. Well due to some family complications I lost track of time. Wondering what are the odds of me getting a dining reservation for 8 anywhere on Thanksgiving.

Any tips or tricks would be super appreciated.

Thanks

Mike

Try The Wave. We did Christmas there, and it was nice Also gave us a chance to resort hop on the monorail to look at decorations.

Your best bet will be at Disney Springs.

The Wave is a nice WDW option, often overlooked.

Good luck with your dining search!

Just did a quick search on the app.....There are options. Most are really late dining, like 9pm or later.

we had a hard time getting anything for Thanksgiving, also. Most options were early afternoon or late night. We ended up at La Nouba 6pm show, and Hollywood Observatory right after that. I guess we'll have an afternoon snack at the pool before we go!

Used the mobile app as well and worked .. was able to get a 645 at STK in the Springs. At least it is something ... I can always monitor and cancel if something else comes up I guess.

So happy for you!

I suspect there will be cancellations over the next few months. Plus Disney always holds back a few reservations. Your biggest obstacle will be a party of 8.

Try OpenTable for a couple of the restaurants at Disney Springs too. The Touring Plans reservation finder link worked for us also for that same holiday week. I found the link on this site when I searched a couple of weeks ago and was a great find!
Good luck!
