Reservations are highly recommended for the table service dining locations listed above, availability can be checked by calling 407-WDW-DINE. Please note these locations can be booked weeks and even months in advance. If there is no availability, you can call back the day of to see if there were any last minute cancellations. If still no luck, then try one of the quick service locations from the list, they don't require any reservations, and the food is often ready much quicker, allowing you for more time for attractions or shows. And if worse comes to worse, there are always the turkey leg carts in the parks. They are absolutely delicious and will satisfy your turkey-craving in an instant. Don't forget to take a pic of your whole family with a leg in hand so you can remember how you spent the holiday. And hey, who says you can't make the whole feast once you get back home - because after all, Thanksgiving should be every day. ;)
