Spend the holidays in sunny southern California where you get the best of both worlds: Incredible Thanksgiving feasts along with sandy beaches and warm weather. Many of the restaurants at Disneyland feature Thanksgiving classic fare including juicy turkeys, moist stuffing, pies, sides and more. However, it’s also a great time of year to visit the park with shorter lines, less crowds, and the opportunity to bond with loved ones.
The Ranch Restaurant and Saloon is a popular pick, offering a prix fixe menu starting at 2 p.m. This rustic, charming diner is a family favorite, and the innovative dishes provide generous portions and spins on classics. You might also want to check out Buca di Beppo for a full turkey feast along with their regular menu. Feasts are available for a fixed price based on party size, and they are open from 11 a.m. – 10 p.m. (though reservations fill up fast!).
Thanks for the Memories
Prefer to enjoy your holiday meal in the comfort of your oversized guest room? Many restaurants offer to-go options, including Zov’s Anaheim. They pack up fresh, homemade full Thanksgiving meals for up to 15 guests. It’s all there from the turkey to the yams, stuffing to mashed potatoes, carrots, salads, rolls and desserts.
For those who prefer to go turkey-free, try Morton’s for their seafood, steak, and Thanksgiving-infused sides. Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen is dishing up their full menu, and McCormick and Schmick’s is surf and turf with a holiday twist.
