Every year on the fourth Thursday of November, people all across the United States sit down to celebrate this major federal holiday. With the festive season upon us, there is no more quintessentially American Holiday to celebrate than Thanksgiving – and it’s a fantastic time to enjoy the long weekend and a hot turkey dinner!
But have you celebrated Thanksgiving #DisneyStyle?
This special holiday has become an integral part of the broader holiday season and has even come to be celebrated as a unique day in the calendar of the Walt Disney Company.
Whether you want to go out and have an adventure, or whether you prefer a quiet day in, check out our top four ways to celebrate thanksgiving….#DisneyStyle!
Visit Disney World
Whether you are a first timer, or a seasoned visitor at The Happiest Place on Earth, thanksgiving is a fantastic time to go!
With November already upon us, now is the time to go on that long awaited vacation to the House the Mouse Built. One of the fantastic things about visiting Disneyland or Walt Disney World in the holiday season is the lovely tepid weather that you will encounter – it is not cold, yet is not too hot to handle. If you haven’t managed to make your way to one of the Disney resorts this year, then November is a great time to go and make the most of the warm weather before winter sets in.
If you have never visited a Disney park during thanksgiving then you will be pleasantly surprised. During thanksgiving, the Disney parks offer special holiday menu’s which include roast turkey breast with all the traditional trimmings as well as cranberry pickle, candied walnuts, mulled apple cider and much more!
The parks are also especially beautiful at this time of year. While the parks are furnished in seasonal holiday décor from top to bottom, you will also find corners devoted specifically to thanksgiving! One of the best locations is the Land Pavilion at Epcot in Walt Disney World which hosts a beautiful display of fall pumpkins, gourds and scarecrows.
If you are planning on spending thanksgiving at one of the Disney parks, be sure to make reservations at one of the Disney dining locations to ensure that you get a chance to sample the delicious thanksgiving food and have an enjoyable thanksgiving celebration….#DisneyStyle!

Catch a Flick: The Good Dinosaur
For the first year in the history of Disney, two feature films are being released in the same year – the first being Inside Out. In making history, the Walt Disney Company will also be releasing their feature film The Good Dinosaur at the box office on thanksgiving weekend.
If you haven’t got grand plans for thanksgiving 2015, then why not head along to this fantastic new film which is set to break box office records! Here’s a quick run-down of the film’s storyline:
In an alternate timeline, Earth was never hit by an asteroid and dinosaurs never became extinct. Enter Arlo. Arlo is a young Apatosaurus who loses his father in a terrible accident. Hurt and lost, Arlo falls into a river and is knocked unconscious. When he tries to find his way home he comes across a small cave-boy he nicknames Spot, and a true friendship is struck. The rest is history…or ‘pre-history’.
There's nothing like kicking back and watching a film as a way of celebrating thanksgiving...#DisneyStyle!
Charm the pants off your thanksgiving guests with some Disney inspired crafts for your table!
Gather the kids and some household materials and see what you can put together! You might like to try and decorate a Butternut Pluto for a centrepiece, or create some beautiful napkin rings to adorn each person’s table setting.
If you aren’t as crafty as you’d like to be, then why not print out these Mickey and Friends thanksgiving coloring pages. They make a fantastic activity for any children that will be attending thanksgiving dinner and are something that they can take home from the evening. They also break your own children’s boredom while they wait for the food to be prepared and the guests to arrive.
Whatever you have lying around at home, you will be sure to be able to make something that’s fun and seasonal for your thanksgiving celebration…#DisneyStyle.
