Great buffet breakfast with LOTS of variety. The staff was wonderful and the characters were just fun :) With early reservations the day was off to a great start. Would definitely recommend this restaurant to Disney visitors!

We had the opportunity to go to this breakfast a few times and it is one of the character experiences of walt disney world. Here you will meet Donald Daisy Goofy Minnie and of course Mickey mouse. The food is a buffet which you can eat as you like. The food choices are plentiful but do take time to try... More

We had breakfast with Mickey, Donald, Daisy and Goofy! The food was delicious, the staff was friendly and helpful and the characters came to each table and spent ample time taking pictures and interacting with the families, Our waiter was Billy and he was fantastic, he was advised of the food allergy in our group and had one of the...

We loved this character breakfast in Animal Kingdom! Safari Donald & Daisy Duck, Safari Mickey, Safari Goofy! They all came to our table and were awesome. The food at the buffet was good too, there was plenty of variety! Our waiter was so friendly and attentive, too. If you are only going to do one or two character meals definitely... More

Great experience, we were shown to our table straight away, no waiting at all. Our waiter was excellent, really helpful. Got our drinks for us while we went to the buffet, large choice of drinks, juices, sodas, water etc. the buffet was much better than we expected. It is spread out with only a few dishes at each station so... More

This is the Character Meal at the Animal Kingdom. We did lunch to save a few bucks. The meal is a buffet, so you won't leave hungry. We expected to see Donald, but were surprised by Daisy, Goofy and Mickey. Not sure about the authenticity of the "African cuisine" but the food was very good.

I wanted to allow my children to have a Character Meal. Well we got to meet some characters which was cool. But I thought the food was terrible. Keep in mind that my children are picky eaters but my wife is not. She enjoys trying new foods. She couldn't find hardly anything she liked. Most of us wound up eating... More

Eating lunch here is the perfect way to combine a delicious meal with a character experience using only 1 table service from the Disney dining plan. We make a reservation every time we visit Animal Kingdom and the kids absolutely love participating with the characters in Mickey's musical parade! The characters spend plenty of time at each table for pictures... More

If you want to see four characters (Safari Mickey, Donald, Daisy, and Goofy) without waiting in lines, then this is a good way to do it. You will have the opportunity to meet each of them and take pictures. That's the only reason I gave it a three. Otherwise, it is loud, busy, and the breakfast was no better than... More
