  • My friend and I were at Walt Disney World from Wed. thru Sun. – and it was amazing! We ate dinner at the Hollywood Brown Derby, and while we deviated away from the actual Thanksgiving offerings – the Blackened Grouper was delicious and the Seasonal Sam Adams Braised Beef Short Ribs paired with butternut squash puree were a wonderful fall-inspired treat. It was the perfect Thanksgiving feast.

    I’m so glad I chose the Deluxe Dining Plan because we ate like Queens the whole trip. Every meal was a thrilling gastronomic journey. I was also delighted to see the whole park decorated for Christmas. I only wish that Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party had been Friday or Saturday night – because, like most people, we had to leave Sunday morning and missed out.
