My daughter booked this reservation for all seven us for breakfast. This was the very first thing we did so my two grandchildren ages 3.5 and 5.5 could see their favorite Disney characters at the very start. What an amazing experience! The service was outstanding, the food was very good and the characters really took their time with all the... More

The food was just ok. The kids couldn't find much they liked. The best thing was the characters they each come to your table and sign and take picture. Goofy even came by twice <3. The food was just ok nothing special and of course not worth the money or the wait. The place looked wonderful though like a food... More

Ate here one night and celiac daughter was taken thru the buffet and given many options for her. She really liked the turnkey legs. Lots of options and I felt it was safe as most of the gluten items were in a separate area. They even prepared a special dessert for her.

Eight of us had Sunday Brunch at Tusker House. It is pricey, but was worth the cost because we could get a reservation for our large party at a table service restaurant. Brunch had plenty of food to satisfy everyone from teen-agers to grandparents. But don't come expecting the equivalent of a champagne brunch back home. Egg dishes were ordinary.... More

Very good food & atmosphere. Character greeting an added plus. Interesting décor - like an open air market.

While this is pricey for lunch, the value is there given the wide choice in food selection, brief escape from the sun as it is air conditioned, and characters. You are able to receive a visit from Donald, Daisy, Goofy, and Mickey. The characters do a really great job of getting around to each of the tables while you are... More

We looked at the price and were unhappy. There wasn't much else around, and our 10-year-old was hungry as a bear and so were we. So we decided to suck it up and go in...and it was really, really good. The seafood was incredible: fresh, abundant (buffet), and well-prepared. The food was truly first-class and we left very happy.

We ate at Tusker's today at the recommendation of other family members who had eaten there during their recent visit to Animal Kingdom. First, the food was fantastic...as good as any buffet we have had with the exception of some fresh seafood buffets we have experienced. We are not "buffet fans"...don't hit Golden Corral or others like it often. So... More
