Nice surprise

We came upon this place by accident, my son begging for breakfast. We did not realize it was a character meal. The food was actually quite good. Ham was especially tasty. Scrambled eggs were done just right. My son loves the Mickey waffles. There were choices for healthy eating, yogurt (plain and... read more

Went for lunch. We were quickly seated at our table. Our waitress was great, and the characters were great too. The food (buffet style) was mediocre for the price. I don't think we would return.

Tucker House was the highlight of our meals at Disney. The food was delicious, well seasoned and there was a huge variety of food to cater to anyone's taste. The service here was great and the characters were fun, they were dressed in safari gear and interacted nicely with the kids and really were entertaining. At one point Goofy started... More

Buffet style restaurant located in WDW's Animal Kingdom. The food here was AMAZING! There was a very wide variety of ethnic African food available for those of us willing to step outside of our usual eating habits. There was also the standard generic food available for those folks who refuse to try new things. There was a wide variety of... More

Came here for lunch. Was great to escape the heat. Character meets were nice and well controlled. However the fact that this is a character meet restaurant results in noisy excited children, which may not be to everyone's taste if trying to escape the mayhem of the park for an hour. The buffet food, although plentiful, is of average quality... More

Excellent character dining experience with Mickey, Donald, Daisey, and Goofy. They only came to the table once, unlike at the Garden Grill but it was still very good. The breakfast buffet is wonderful, I have never had any other meal there, only breakfast. I can't say enough good things about it. Although, you used to get a photo opportunity before... More

On our last Disney visit 2 years ago, we ate art anima at the animal Kingdom Lodge, and found it lacking. This time, we decided to try Tusker House. I had little problem getting a reservation for dinner. When we arrived and I asked if I could move my reservation up by 25 minutes (we had a potential schedule conflict),... More

Very expensive for what you got in the buffet. Food was at best average. The adults were put on one side of table and children on the other. I figured out afterwards that was to make it inconvenient for adults to talk to each other. They wanted us out of there as fast as possible. Waiter presented bill before food... More

This is one of our favorite restaurants on the Disney property. The food is delicious and fresh, the atmosphere is perfectly themed to Africa, and the characters are attentive and come around frequently. We always try and make time to eat here while at Animal Kingdom!

Not sure if we just got lucky (the park wasn't that crowded. I guess because of the heat.), but we were able to get in right away. Food was very good. My favorite was the salmon, red potatoes, & jalapeno corn bread. The collard greens were okay, but could use a little work. For dessert, the lemon bars and coconut... More
