Thanksgiving, in and of itself a wonderful excuse to visit Walt Disney World. In fact, if you can be at the Magic Kingdom for Thanksgiving, let me suggest that you visit the Liberty Tree Tavern for a wonderful meal of early American comfort food and a perfect Thanksgiving feast. Liberty Tree used to be a character meal but, the best I understand, it no longer features characters. That is no great loss. The restaurant is crowded, tight fitting, with multiple rooms much like one would expect from an 18th century New England tavern. The food is great, all you can eat, served to you at your table. A fine Thanksgiving feast any day of the year.
Thanksgiving is a special time for me, a time to reflect on the year gone by, pray for the future and thank God for his blessings and protection. Enjoy some time with your family and try your best to look on the up side of life.
1958: Jamie Lee Curtis was born to Actors Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh. Jamie’s movie credits are varied and she has a couple of Disney movies among them. Freaky Friday features Jamie Lee swapping places with her daughter for a view from the other side of life and Beverly Hills Chihuahua has her upstaged by a group of tiny canines but who among us can compete with a pack of cute dogs. We saw Beverly Hills Chihuahua on our Disney Cruise in 2008. Hey, it’s already Thursday, stay another day and make it a freaky Friday.
Everybody wants to be a cat. In 1971, Walt Disney Productions released The Aristocrats, its 20th animated feature in the United Kingdom. So visit the United Kingdom Pavilion at EPCOT and release the aristocratic cat inside you.
Remember your best excuse is always: waiting for your dreams to come true.
