Turkey with all the trimmings may be the traditional way to celebrate Thanksgiving, but it’s not the only way. This year, ditch the turkey in favor a quick getaway over the four-day weekend.
From on-shore activities to on-board entertainment, a cruise offers something for everyone in your travel party. Plus, with all-you-can-eat buffets and fancy dinners, you won’t miss the Thanksgiving meal at all.

Most parks in the U.S. are already closed for the season by the time Thanksgiving rolls around, so you’ll have to pick a southern or warm weather destination. Thanksgiving weekend is often an extremely busy time at the Florida parks, but if you can arrive Monday or Tuesday or stay until Sunday, you might be able to enjoy a few days at the parks without navigating super-thick crowds. Even if you have to go on the highest-traffic days, however, a theme park Thanksgiving can be a lot of fun, especially since the crowds are usually in happy holiday spirits.
By late fall, some parks have limited services open, so consult the calendar of the park of your choice before finalizing your plans.
