The Ultimate 2019 Orlando Thanksgiving Guide


You already know that Orlando is a popular summer destination, but don't underestimate our off-season appeal - especially when it comes to the holidays! If you're looking for a change-up from the traditional Thanksgiving at home, consider a new tradition... Thanksgiving in Orlando! Pick your feast from local restaurants, hotels, and theme parks - order a full meal to enjoy at your (vacation) home - take a turkey day cooking class - or share a little bit with those in need. We have more options for your festive feasting than you can shake a turkey leg at (speaking of turkey legs, there's always Frontierland in a pinch). 

Check out our complete roundup of Thanksgiving holiday suggestions - updated throughout the month. Have we missed something? Please let us know!
