A little bit pricey, like everything at Walt Disney, but just for the experience my husband and I visited this restaurant on a recent visit to Animal Kingdom. I have never had African food, and I was looking forward to the new experience. This is a buffet style restaurant where the desserts and non-alcoholic drinks are included. I want to... More

This was my favorite character meal that I had at Disney World. I'm not a big breakfast fan, I rarely eat breakfast at home, but we wanted to get an early start at Animal Kingdom so we booked an 815 am breakfast and were not disappointed. The characters were fun and the food was delicious. There were several unique entrées... More

Great buffet with some usual breakfast foods and some African inspired ones! Donald, Daisy, & Goofy are there dressed in safari dress & make their way around the room to each table for pictures.

We liked the breakfast here so much last time that we went back without the kids this time. Beautifully decorated and set up very well. Some unique choices along with very good standard breakfast items. There is always a line at the Krispy Kreme donut holes. They serve this wonderful orange, guava, passion fruit juice as all you can drink... More

It is nice to try something different. That place is Tusker. If you need to have something more familiar to your taste, you will be able to find macaroni and cheese too

We made reservations well in advance and used the Dining Plan. Characters (Daisy, Goofy, Mickey and Donald) came through almost immediately. They serve everyone juice at the beginning which was real tasty. Buffet was good. All the usual suspects plus some African specialities. Decor is really great in the buffet room. Good coffee and donut holes on the dessert bar... More

This was a great stop for us in the middle of a busy day. Great service, enormous selection of food on the buffet, at least ten different desserts and more Disney Characters working the crowd than you could count. Jose was our server and he was the best we've had this week. We didn't feel rush or pushed to hurry... More

We were pleasantly surprised by the unique food on the buffet. We actually did not know our reservations were for character dining so that was a nice treat. I'm not sure we would go again but we are glad to have gone.

Hello folks. We are just back from a great vacation with two of our kids and their families (grandkids and sons-in-law), 10 of us total. What a great place and buffet for breakfast. Be sure to make reservations, it gets really busy. The food is really done well. Of course I always try the traditional foods which were very tasty.... More
