good food, fun characters a little loud and a little pricey

This is a good place if you want a little spice in your food, your looking for some good deserts and you want to meet from Disney friends. Its a Disney restaurant so decor is great as well. We were under a speaker so it was a little loud. We live in Orlando so we have had the opportunity to... read more

I would rate this restaurant on par with Chef Mickey's and 1900 Park Fare. Just ok on the food options and taste but all you can eat and a good character experience. Probably the best thing about Animal Kingdom other than Expedition Everest.

Animal kingdom breakfast had always been one of the highlights of our Disney trips going back to the excellent Breakfastosaurus. This was our 4th visit to the Tusker House breakfast and although the food was still good, it wasn't the same quality of previous visits. Also it seems as if they have added additional tables / Seating areas and everything... More

this was a character buffet breakfast. We had a large part of 10 and everyone was perfect from the characters, to the assortment of would as well as the overall quality of the buffet. This was the 1st time any of us ate there and we will go back net time we are in animal Kingdom.

Our family of 8, including 3 grandsons, enjoyed a great character breakfast at Tusker House. Staff were very friendly, a good selection of food and Mickey, Donald, Goofy and Daisy came round the tables for photos. Much less rushed than Chef Mickeys and you are already in Animal Kingdom to enjoy the rides.

Our party of four (two adults, an eleven year old, and a two year old) arrived at 1100 for our 1115 reservation. We had the Disney Dining Plan. This buffet was our best food experience at Disney and the best value for our dining plan. We also ate at the Biergarten at Epcot, SciFi Dine-in Theater at Hollywood, and the... More

The restaurant is very loud. The hard floors and walls seem to resonate the cacophony of noise that occurs when lots of tourists are eating dinner. The character dinner was fun, but all character meals do not have professional photographers (so no Memory Maker) so we had to stop eating every 15 minutes to take pictures. Mentally preparing for this... More

We ate breakfast at Tusker House and loved it. The food was fresh and delicious. The kids loved the character experiences with Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Daisy. We will definitely return to Tusker House on our next visit. Great way to start our vacay!

I have done a lot of the character breakfasts at Disney and to me this is the best one by far. Cinderella's castle is not even close. The character experience is par for the course but it is just something about their breakfast. It is very similar in selection to other breakfast buffets, but the food just taste better. We... More

The buffet was by far the worst buffet we ever experienced. It claimed to be African but was anything but African. Even the kids had no options. If there weren't Disney characters the place should be completely empty. Our girls enjoyed dancing with the characters but we could have saved $250 and waited in lines instead.
