Orlando Thanksgiving Buffets near Lake Buena Vista
It may not be the traditional way to celebrate the holiday, but few things beat a Thanksgiving vacation in Orlando. The warm weather, world-class attractions, and sightseeing are must-have ingredients for a memorable week. On the day of the big feast, however, you may find yourself wondering what to do and where to eat. Fortunately, you won’t have to go far at all to enjoy some Thanksgiving fun in Orlando.
What to do on Thanksgiving:
While a lot of attractions are closed on Thanksgiving, the Orlando theme parks are not. A Thanksgiving Day spent braving roller coaster and hobnobbing with your favorite characters is one you’ll reminisce about for years to come. If you are planning to visit the Orlando theme parks on Thanksgiving, remember that it will be busy so it’s best to arrive early, if possible.
If you prefer a more philanthropic Thanksgiving celebration, sign up for the 30th anniversary Seniors First Turkey Trot 5k. This fun run is a Central Florida tradition and runners are known for showing up in outrageous Thanksgiving-themed costumes. You’ll be helping seniors while also working up an appetite for your feast later on. The race takes place at 8:00 a.m. at Lake Eola in downtown Orlando.
Where to eat on Thanksgiving:
One of the perks of vacationing during Thanksgiving is that you won’t have to spend your day in the kitchen, toiling over a hot stove. At Clarion Inn Lake Buena Vista, we offer a Thanksgiving Day buffet that is sure to satisfy your turkey tooth. The buffet is open to all, so even if you aren’t staying with us there is a seat for you at the table.
This year’s buffet will take place at Bella Vista, a Rosen Venue, just steps away from your guestroom at Clarion Inn Lake Buena Vista. Our Thanksgiving buffet menu is now available online and includes turkey with all the trimmings, Virginia ham, candied sweet potatoes, Maryland crab cakes, and pumpkin pie, all prepared by our talented chef. Seats fill up fast, so reservations are strongly recommended. Plus, you’ll save 10% on adult meals with prepaid reservations. We also offer a to-go option that serves eight. To reserve your seat or place your order, give us a call at (407) 996-7345.
What to do after your Thanksgiving feast:
After the feast, you may want to relax in the comfort of your guestroom. If you are staying at Clarion Inn Lake Buena Vista, you’ll have access to free Wi-Fi as well as cable television with complimentary Disney and movie channels so you can watch your favorite holiday shows. If you prefer to burn off that dinner, our heated swimming pools, kids splash zone, and playground are open.
Serious holiday shoppers will be preparing to hit the stores after their Thanksgiving feast. Fortunately, Orlando has plenty of designer malls and outlets that offer Black Friday sales. Even boutiques and souvenir shops at Disney Springs will have items marked down for this shopping holiday.
