Thanksgiving in Orlando

I'm going to be in Orlando/Disney area for Thanksgiving. Are there any restaurants that will be open and are good for a family meal? There are 5 of us. There is nothing available on Disney property so we are looking for something close by....

  1. I'm keeping a running list on my flog at The Caribe Royale would be closest to Disney. There are also several hotels -- with nice food service -- on I-Drive (The Rosen Hotels) and at Universal (Loews).

      ok I'm checking out your flog now. How awesome. Do you have any of those turkey day choices that you recommend more than the others? Thanks so much!

        Thanksgiving is difficult for recommendations. Even the finest restaurants can be thrown off by the volume, as well as preparing a menu they're not familiar with. That said, Park Plaza Gardens would probably be my choice among those listed. If you're looking for a buffet, then Caribe Royale should suffice (it's also closer to Disney). Enjoy!
