Excellent breakfast buffet with a lot of "characters".

First time experience for my family after many trips to Disney. Great breakfast buffet with offerings of all kinds including eggs, bacon, sausage, fruits, cereals, waffles, pancakes, omlets, Danish pastries, donuts, and varied juices and drinks.

This was out 3rd time having a meal at Tusker House. The buffet is huge and had lots of different options! The characters spend plenty of time at each table taking pictures and signing autographs. We love this restaurant and will be back!

Superb food, all-you-care-to-eat buffet. Characters spent plenty of time at each table, so that you could get autographs and pictures. Staff were happy and friendly.

Went there with our two kids. The food were good. My husband and I like 'ethnic food', so enjoy the samosa, and curry chicken, and salmon. I am not sure if it's 'African food', but enjoyed regardless. My daughter had her favorite mac and cheese. The character was good. My son finally got to see Mickey! Service was decent. The... More

This was our second visit in 3 years to Tusker House. Our first Visit was OK but not as great as I had hoped. This visit was brilliant. We checked in and were straight away invited to have our picture taken outside the restaurant with no queuing. (Last time the queue was endless.) The picture is now without Donald, he... More

Consistently over the years have had good food. We have made it a tradition on our DisneyWorld trips to go to Tusker for breakfast. It's also nice to see Jungle Versions of the Mickey set of characters. Also the jungle juice is fantastic!

Great Character Dining spot in my favorite Park: Animal Kingdom. The decor and atmosphere are immaculate you really do feel like you're dining in Harambe, Africa. Such a great village feel with delicious coffee. Our server, Amanda, was very attentive and kind and was on point when telling us when each character would make a table visit. The food was... More

I think if we were to return to Tusker House we would go for breakfast it seems to get much better reviews. Lunch was perfectly adequate, it just wasn't particularly exciting. there was variety and nothing tasted bad, it just could have been more flavoursome. With being African themed I would have hoped for more herbs and spices or some... More

My family really enjoyed this restaurant. We had 9am reservations on a Sunday morning, got there about 10 mins early and were seated promptly. We were in the main dining room which was bustling, but not any louder than a typical buffet restaurant. They warn you that it could take 90 mins for all the characters to come through, but... More
