A nice location in Animal Kingdom. A buffet with all the trimmings. I will return here. I had a special mango orange juice that was good, grits, ham, waffles. Very nice and not overly noisy.

We went to the Tusker House for dinner on a chilly, RAINY night. By the time we had gone to this dinner, we had done a number of character meals (one huge perk of the Disney Dining plan), so the overall "wow" factor of having the characters there was not as huge as it would have been if it was...

We like eating here for the great selection of breakfast foods along with awesome character interaction. Try the juice, it is amazing!

Although pricey (10 and over are charged as adults) this was the best place we ate on our Disney Vacation. The buffet has enough options that everyone can find something delicious. Even the kids (who are kind of picky) ate plenty. I would go there again on other visits.

We have eaten here twice and my kids have loved it each time. The kids had ran the kid's races at Disney this last time and the characters made a big deal about their medals. We talked to the allergy chef upon arrival, as is customary with all Disney restaurants when you have a dietary restriction. He was able to... More

I went to Tusker House with my husband. We came just for the food, which let me say, is phenomenal. We love the food so much that we drool anytime we think of Animal Kingdom and Tusker House. In fact, I think I go to Animal Kingdom just for Tusker House, it's that good! We thought we were going to... More

It's a buffet, not gourmet food but tasty with lots of options. Makes a good addition with a touch of the Disney Magic experience. A little expensive given the quality of the food but if you have a little extra cash to spend it's a good addition for lunch at Animal Kingdom.

We made a reservation for a Character lunch at this buffet restaurant and were VERY unhappy and disappointed with our experience. Our waitress (Eve) was nice, but the hostess sat us in a terrible spot up against the emergency exit door and we were ignored/overlooked by the characters that were walking around. Donald Duck walked by and waved at our... More
