We LOVED the food - atmosphere - service at this incredible restaurant at The Animal Kingdom of Disneyworld! We'd been wanting to try it and finally did so on our most recent Disney vacation. Definitely worth the price! (Best salmon ever!) And...Neil...our server was fabulous!!!

The restaurant is really nice and the environment is all about africa, but with the Disney touch, the characters came to your table, doesnt matter where are you sitted in, but the food is very regular for the price, you are paying mostly for being with the characters.

We've had character breakfasts all over Disney, but this one moves to the top of the list (yes, better than Chef Mickey's and the Crystal Palace)! The food was terrific with unique choices, and the character actors made themselves personable and available for a longer period of time. Definitely choose this one if you want great food and character interaction.

We just came from The New Lion King Show.. We were in a very good mood... We were welcomed warmly and seated... After a time we were greeted by Mickey, Donald and Goofy.... We had a very good meal... It is a buffet and lots of good food to choose from. I am a goofy person, and when he saw... More

We ate here on June 13 for a lunch with the characters. Upon check in, it was raining and crowded, but we waited for only a couple of minutes to be seated. The buffet has great theming and is not too crowded. There is a variety of different food, a handful of them being vegetarian friendly too. My favorite was... More

Breakfast food is amazing, the juice they give you is out of this world, and the characters have a ton of interaction with you. What's not to love? I really have nothing bad to say about this buffet. Go and you won't be disappointed!

This was the first character buffet my mam and I did while in the Disney resort and it didn't disappoint at all. We hadn't made a reservation so we were doubtful as to whether we'd get in but we did, with only a few minute wait. The appearance of the interior is lovely and the service was great. We went...

Food, servers, and characters all made this a wonderful experience. Only downside was the upselling of pictures during our meal. "We know that you have memory maker and have paid for your pictures but would you like to purchase this cheap cardboard frame for $35?"

We booked a character breakfast thinking it would be easier to tour the park when done. The variety and quality of the food was excellent. It was of course a buffet with the added benefit of being a character breakfast. You have to make sure you get your food around when the characters are coming around the tables as not... More

You will find foods you have never seen before with an African slant. Lunch was buffet style and we were quite happy with our decision to eat here.
