Gee such limited chices Robert. But truth be told I tend to take both a little of each.

I'm sorry Robert but that turkey platter in the photo looks about as unappetising as any "meal" I've ever seen, anywhere, anytime.

Anyway.......I like a bit of both white and dark meat. The latter undeniably has far more flavor. I recall discussing this same question with one of the Chefs at the Regal Sun's Xmas Eve Carvery. As we'd agreed that the dark meat had more depth of flavor we went on to chat about such things as the cooking times for the exalted bird. I then got taken on a tour of the kitchens while my wife waited and wondered where I'd gotten to. I returned with a plate of dark turkey meat piled so high that it resembled Richard Dreyfuss's "mash mountain" from Close Encounters.
Now that's what you get for talking turkey with a chef.

As for the theme park restaurants, my wish list starts with having a holiday meal at the Napa Rose sometime. We did enjoy a very nice Thanksgiving meal at the Portofino Bay Hotel at Universal Orlando several years back, too. But I've not been going to the parks for holiday meals out here in LA as I did back when I lived in Orlando (and had that very nice cast member discount!)

How much did that Thanksgiving meal at Holiday World cost you?

As for the choice of meat, I dont care. As long as it has gobs of homemade country gravy on top :)

I agree that the image you chose is not the most appetizing. I went for White, but Dark is more flavorful. If the vote was the best theme park Thanksgiving meal I would have to vote for Knott's!

Real men eat dark meat and grog!
