For one very special day, Thursday, November 27th, the Disneyland Resort restaurants will be focusing on the Thanksgiving fest. Disneyland guests will be able to enjoy a wide variety of turkey dinners from traditional to Cajun inspired.
If you will be inside the Disneyland Park you have your choice of places to enjoy your turkey dinner. Plaza Inn is offering a more traditional choice with slow-roasted turkey with gravy and sage dressing, mashed potatoes, veggies and a roll. If you’re looking for something a little less on the traditional side, try Blue Bayou Restaurant where they are serving up turkey roulade, truffle-infused chicken giblet stuffing, roasted garlic Boursin mashed potatoes and veggies.
Ariel’s Grotto in Disneyland California Adventure Park is going traditional with slow-roasted turkey breast and gravy, apple stuffing, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes and veggies. Flo’s V-8 Cafe is also going traditional cooking herb-roasted turkey with mashed potatoes and stuffing, veggies and cranberry relish.
If you find yourself outside the parks, never fear you can still get a great Turkey dinner at the Disneyland Resort Hotels including Steakhouse 55 at the Disneyland Hotel where you can get an amazing three-course menu with starters such a butternut squash soup, crispy shredded skirt steak and maple clabbered cream; the entrée is roasted turkey Wellington with pecan stuffing, cranberry relish, Swiss chard and wild mushroom gravy, and dessert is a choice of sweet potato pot de crème, cinnamon gelato, marshmallow meringue and apple crisp. You can also visit the Disneyland Hotel ballroom for the annual fall Thanksgiving dinner – a bounty of turkey, prime rib, stuffing, sweet potato soufflé, cranberry-orange relish, poached shrimp, king crab legs and all the trimmings. Pumpkin and pecan pies, tarts, cookies, freshly made crepes and a chocolate fountain are the sweetest ending for a day of thanks.
If you are looking for something for the kids stop try the Thanksgiving brunch and dinner buffet at Goofy’s Kitchen also at the Disneyland Hotel. Offerings include turkey, orange-cranberry sauce, Yukon Gold mashed potatoes, vanilla-scented roasted sweet potatoes with brown sugar and marshmallows, herb stuffing, butternut squash soup, pumpkin pie and cranberry cobbler.
Chef Andrew Sutton is wowing us with his fabulous four-course Country Wine Feast for the holiday at Napa Rose inside Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel and Spa. Also at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel, Storyteller’s Cafe offers a buffet with turkey, gravy and cranberry sauce, beef with Cognac au jus and creamed horseradish, brioche bread stuffing with sweet Italian sausage, roasted golden beets with Feta and holiday sweets, including lots of pies.
Another great buffet can be found at Disney’s PCH Grill at Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel featuring Thanksgiving tastes such as turkey, gravy and stuffing, cranberry relish and roasted veggies, along with salads soups, beef, salmon and more.
