Good food bit underwhelmed with character experience

Went for the lunch option whilst visiting the Animal Kingdom. We got in ten minutes before our time which was appreciated. Lunch options were very good and everyone enjoyed what they had. slightly disappointed that there are not magic moments photographers with the characters - my fault for not... read more

I have ate at most breakfast buffets at WDW over the past 2 years, but there is no doubt that this was my favourite, both from character interaction, a great and friendly server and great food. Our next visit to WDW will definitely include a return visit or two. Food was great and the big kids (all of us in... More

This is our second visit to Tusker house and I can only agree with others when they say there is nothing nicer than walking through the park before normal opening hours, even if only up to the restaurant. The food is very good quality, buffet style with drinks and refills being brought to our table by a waiter. Waiter tips... More

I was a bit worried about the food as I'd read several negative reviews but there was no need to worrry at our lunch.The welcome was friendly and staff chatty and efficient, giving clear instructions on how the buffet worked as well as bringing drinks to the table. The food was lovely, and the hot food a good temperature. Great... More

Really enjoyed the food choice at breakfast in this African themed restaurant. A good selection of the usual American breakfast fare, coupled with some different traditional African offerings. A good mix of savoury and sweet choices. Went with my 2 teens and we all found lots we liked and left full for the day. Characters visited each table during the... More

Booked table for 10.40 and in straight away, a good time to go as breakfast in full flow, but lunch on way out so can have brunch. Good selection of fresh foods, plenty to choose from and lots to drink. Service was good, attentive staff and the characters came to see us twice in our time there, not too busy... More

This was my second time dining at Tusker House Restaurant, and my first time for Breakfast. For me, there's nothing better than walking through Disney's Animal Kingdom before it opens to the public, on my way to the Africa section of the park, where Tusker House is located. Breakfast at Tusker house is a true feast, and easily one of... More

Tasty basic fare, but plenty of it and a wide choice to suit all tastes. Warm friendly service and we loved seeing Donald and Daisy Duck, Mickey and Goofy. They stopped every so often and broke into dance which they encouraged the children to join in with. Your children may disappear for a bit as they go around the restaurant,... More

It was not a cheap lunch. The food was very picked over and being replaced at 1:40- our reservation time. The fruit salad was gone, deserts were gone, the Cesar salad was wilting. In addition, not a lot of standard kid food. My kids are bread and milk. We saw daisy, Donald, and Goofy. Mickey Mouse never came to our... More

We had an 8 a.m. Breakfast here July 2015, and my kids loved the character interaction. I felt the characters came around in a timely manner, and did so pretty much one after the other, so when we were finished with our breakfast buffet, we could. This also meant that our server was right on time with taking our payment.... More
