We made a reservation for lunch with Donald Duck caring little about the actual food, we just wanted our son to meet a favorite character. Turned out the buffet was amazing Mediterranean food with super friendly service. The kicker is that FIVE characters were at Tusker House that day!! Our 4 year old ate so much good food and was...

We especially loved steak, mash potato and a spectacular dessert selection, characters were present too and there was plenty of time to take photos with them all :)

It may be crowded but it is worth the wait. Tusker House was the best lunch we had in all of the four parks in Orlando with a unique spin on a fused "African" type food.

The food here is pretty good. The experience with the characters is top notch. They encourage you to take your time with your meal, and are careful to explain the path the characters will take. My kids really enjoyed this experience. So did I!!

We visited here with our son's family that included triplet 5 year-old girls and a 6 month old boy. So we were 4 adults, 3 children and an infant. We book this as part of our Disney dining plan mainly for the interaction with Disney characters. The buffet was good ( a solid step above Golden Coral) with some items... More

I don't really think of great food when I think of a trip to Disney. That changed after eating at Tusker House. I make lunch reservations for our large group of 7 months in advance mainly for the character experience and as a break from the park. It was by far the best meal we have eaten at any of... More

We had lunch at Tusker House. Their buffet has plenty of choices but none that were particularly outstanding. They offered plenty of kids selections. While nothing was bad, it just wasn't our favorite meal. We saw Minnie, Daisy & Donald while there - their handlers were the most unfriendly we encountered. I am sure it was supposed to go with...

My husband and 2 teenage boys ate here during the last week of August. I didn't know if any in my family would be put off by the menu, but the reality was that the food was much more mainstream than what the menu seems. The food was very high quality. There was a carving station which was very good.... More

Good place to eat and see the characters, the food was decent had a couple different things that were good to try than the usual breakfast, the characters came around fast it seemed like and if you t ime it right you can have some lunch and breakfast they put lunch out just as we were getting ready to leave.

This buffet surpassed all other breakfasts we had during our week at Disney World. Huge selections, and a made to order omelet bar. Also had a meat carving station and a cold cereal bar. There is no juice other than "jungle juice" which is their specialty blend of a few juices all in one drink, and it was interesting in... More
