Gobble up this holiday 

For some, family tradition at Thanksgiving includes waiters and valet parking. Whether it's the very popular Disney-character and jazz repast at the Dolphin Room (Swan & Dolphin Hotel; $39.50, $18 children; 407-934-4335) or an intimate gobble at Chef Arthur's Nicole St. Pierre ($30; 407-647-7575), there are enough choices in town to make everyone happy.

Dux at the Peabody has one of the choicest holiday spreads ($52; sorry, no Thanksgiving duck; 407-345-4550), and the Columbia Restaurant in Celebration has one of the least expensive ($15.95, $4.95 under 10; 407-566-1505). But the one that caught my interest is "T-Day in the garage" at the Citrus Club. While not open on the 22nd, they'll make dinner for six -- free-range turkey, jalepeno-cornbread stuffing, veggies and desert for $110 -- and bring it to your car in the parking lot.
