    Jessica from TX Asked

    Hello! We have reservations at Tuskar House for Thanksgiving Day. Will they be serving a traditional Thanksgiving dinner? It looks like in years past they have, but I am not seeing anything about this year.

    Hi there, Jessica!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, fellow Texan!  How's "fall" in Texas treating you?!?!  I don't know about you, but now that it is October, I am more than ready for the heat to make its way out and some fall temperatures to move in.  That may be wishful thinking but I will remain hopeful! 

    Thanksgiving at Walt Disney World Resort sounds amazing and I am so excited for you!  When I was a child, my family spent one Thanksgiving at the theme parks, and it was so very memorable!  While it wasn’t our traditional Thanksgiving celebration, we made some really special memories on that particular trip…that I still remember all these years later!

    While food is definitely aplenty (and somewhat unique!) at Walt Disney World Resort, I definitely understand wanting to keep with a traditional Turkey Tom meal on Thanksgiving!  Unfortunately, when I checked with a Cast Member today, they informed me that Thanksgiving menus have not yet been released, so I cannot answer whether or not a traditional Thanksgiving meal will be served at Tusker House this yEAR.  But, if I had to guess, I would think that they would choose to stick with their tradition and serve a traditional Thanksgiving meal again this year as they have in the past - although you may see some added African-flavor in there as well.  But the Cast Member suggested checking back in the coming weeks after the menus have been released for confirmation.

    My family certainly loves dining at Tusker House, so I know you will be happy with whatever their menu provides.  While we typically “brunch” there with Safari Donald and Friends, we have also enjoyed a dinner or two there as well!  This mama has figured out that a buffet is the way to go with my crew…something for everyone – and plenty of it!  

    Wishing you the most enjoyable of vacations making many magical memories!
