Got your stretchy pants on? People, this is not a drill. Thanksgiving Day is quickly approaching and we are super pumped for turkey, cranberry sauce, and all the fixings. The only thing that could make this holiday more exciting is a spin on the teacups and a stay at the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. Good news: we’ve optimized a plan for you to enjoy both.
The Traditional Feast
The Disneyland Hotel serves up the grandaddy of Thanksgiving meals.
Roast turkey. Check.
Prime rib of beef. Check.
Sweet potato souffle. Check.
Fountain made of chocolate. Triple check.
Only problem? You can’t take your five course meal with you in line at Space Mountain. Taking that into consideration, here’s the solution you need:
The Turkey Leg
The Turkey Alternative
Marvel at the latest addition to Disneyland Park… the mighty BBQ Glazed Pork Shank. If you’re a fan of eating meat on a stick (that’s not turkey), this is the meal for you. Find it at Edelweiss Snacks near the Matterhorn. Thanks us later.
The Kids Alternative
You know what makes Thanksgiving dinner instantly better? Putting it on top of a pizza. Enjoy this slice topped with turkey and cranberries over at Red Rockett’s Pizza Port in Tomorrowland.
Pumpkin Spice Lattes are perfect for parade viewing on Main Street, U.S.A. Grab one at the Starbucks inside the Disneyland Market House or the Fiddler, Fifer and Practical Cafe at Disney California Adventure.
Fill up on roasted corn, mashed potatoes, peas, carrots, and homemade rolls at Flo’s V8 Cafe. Warning: once you’ve finished your meal, you might want to wait 30 minutes before riding Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
