Thanksgiving Dinner ideas: Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel

It’s countdown to turkey time, and the Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa chefs are planning some extra-special dining for Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, Nov. 26.  We love the Grand California Hotel – it reminds me of our many visits to the historic Grove Park Inn in Asheville, North Carolina.

For the kids, try Storytellers Café. It’s dinner buffet features salads and fresh fruit, roasted corn chowder, hand-carved turkey with gravy and cranberry sauce, hand-carved beef, pan-seared salmon, pork loin, candied yams, sourdough bread stuffing, Yukon Gold mashed potatoes, green beans. Also holiday desserts include pumpkin and pecan pies, bread pudding with vanilla sauce, chocolate pate, dulce de leche pot de crème.
