We reserved a spot at 10:45 to get "brunch" knowing breakfast is cheaper and our kids will actually eat breakfast food. Even with our reservation we waited nearly 30 minutes. They were taking the breakfast food away as we were trying to fill our plates. The food was good though, both the breakfast and lunch foods. The important thing to... More

I was really surprised this place was not packed, it was relatively easy to get a reservation. This buffet was totally awesome and huge, with so many choices it was hard to pick. It was not cheap, but it was very, very good. I particularly liked the roast beef. The array of desserts was very cutely displayed: a whole lot... More

Once you have conquered Everest and completed your safari at Magic Kingdom this is one of the better places for a spot of lunch. You need to make a reservation for lunch and even with a reservation there can be a wait for a table. There is plenty of well cooked and presented food to choose from for all the... More

I'm taking one start because they remove Donald Duck from taking a family picture outside the restaurant as many years ago, now is only a picture with a wall. Everything else is perfect I loved the food and the desserts.

We ate here with family. The breakfast buffet was great, but as i write in all of my Disney reviews, the atmosphere makes the restaurant. Great fun meeting the characters personally as they each visit your table and spend time interacting with your party. The typical American fare is mixed well with traditional African dishes. Fun time. Definite recommendation, especially... More

Had pre booked a Character Breakfast here, very cheap, but not what i call a breakfast, lots of variety of food but not what I would describe as breakfast food more like a lunch menu. However the characters were lovely to see and my kids were even able to dance with Donald and Daisy, it was great to see. Managed... More

My husband and I have a 2 year old daughter. It was her birthday and she loves Disney characters and this was her first time meeting them. She knows all their names. We got seated quickly, and my husband and daughter went up to the buffet. I saw Donald coming, as he was the next table over so I said... More
