Dined here for lunch. Even though we had a reservation, still had to wait over half an hour to be seated. Although the food was tasty and there was a good variety, it was still expensive. I wasn't impressed. Plus it's noisy and overcrowded. Our waitress was very good though and it was nice that there were plenty of characters... More

The food was great! I really enjoyed getting to try the African selections! The staff was great, our waiter was very attentive and the chef carving the ham was so nice! He even explained all about plantains and how to cook them! You definitely should try the bread pudding with vanilla sauce! We'll absolutely go back!

Tusker House buffet breakfast will not disappoint! The buffet boasted an impressive array of traditional breakfast fare along with some dishes that had an African flair. The Mickey Mouse waffles were the best we had ever had! It was fun dining with Donald Duck and Goofy, even if we are of a "certain age". Children will particularly enjoy participating in... More

A quality Disney-character breakfast buffet with Donald, Goofy, Mickey and Daisy, but the real star of this meal was the "Jungle Juice" - a mix of orange, mango and passion fruit. A smooth mixture, the staff keeps your glasses refilled throughout the meal. The buffet options included traditional American fare (waffles, oatmeal, eggs), as well as great sampling of African-inspired... More

We didn't realize this was a buffet as we entered and was very pleasantly surprised we were seated quickly and the wait staff was excellent. The food was good with choices for the very young to the more upscale choices as well. We had plenty of time to enjoy our meal and then was treated to visits from Goofy, Mickey,... More

Great character meal! My son loved goofy. Great unique food that my kids liked. Price was about $100 for family of four. We would do this lunch again.

Ate here for dinner--so NO characters. My mom and I absolutely loved this buffet. There were tons of choices and even the pickiest eaters would be able to find something. I loved the African flare of all of the dishes and really enjoyed the desserts as well. The children's buffet is full of regular American food, so it would be... More

We booked this character dine for lunch six months in advance simply because Daisy would be there. We planned to eat at Tuskers on our first full day for lunch, to get in out of the daytime heat. When we arrived at Tuskers we had a family photo taken and were seated within ten minutes. The service was brilliant and... More

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!!!
