We stayed for 12 days, including Thanksgiving, 2 years ago and LOVED it! It was fun to see the “Presidential Turkey Parade” in the MK on Thanksgiving Day. The parks were pretty empty the week before Thanksgiving until about Wednesday morning when i seemed all of America poured in WDW. The crowds were strange & never bothered us. Everyone in WDW was alwaqys packed into the Osborne Lights (don’t do that on “Black Friday”) we couldn’t even move through the street on that day to see the lights.
Otherwise, Thanksgiving morning in the MK was ABSOLUTELY EMPTY until around 10:30, then it gradually got a little busier.
We had Thanksgiving lunch at Liberty Tree & Thanksgiving dinner at 1900 Park Fare. I was TOTALLY surprised by 1900 that day, the food was DELICIOUS (a whole Thanksgiving buffet) and everyone was very festive & friendly. I’d definately eat a holiday meal there again.
The weather was VERY warm during the day. I remember wearing jeans & wishing I had shorts or capris. I did wear a thin long sleeve light jacket several of the nights but not too often.
