This meal really depends on your preferences. If you like curry and/or corn dogs you'll be quite happy. Unfortunately, I like neither. It's a large buffet, but I found precious little that tickled my fancy. The pork roast was fine. The salmon had a sauce I didn't like, but you might. The beans were cold and the mashed potatoes were... More

We ate here on the last day of our holiday as a treat. The food served on the buffet was excellent, varied and plentiful. The addition of having the characters repeatedly attend your table for pictures, autographs or just a hug was a nice touch. A bit on the pricey side at $45 for an adult but in my opinion... More

This was our 2nd visit to Tusker House. The food was delicious both visits, and the service excellent. The characters come to the table in a reasonable amount of time, so we were able to get photos with everyone and then hit the park. (Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Donald and Daisy) On our first visit (2008), the characters performed a parade... More

I personally loved the food, but my wife and kid hated it. Definitely not a place for unadventurous mouths.

Group of eight with four children under the age of 10. We all had a great time. The buffer is delicious and gives you plenty to choose from. The jungle juice is very good. The kids absolutely loved the characters coming around to visit them. Will do this again!

Tje breakfast buffet is one best at Walt disney World. I couldn't stop eating the glazed yeast donut holes. It is a fun place for the characters. If you are on the dining plan think about the value for the kids meal. You may want to pay cash for them. The never ending jungle juice was excellent.

My husband and I take a trip to Disney every other year and always make it a priority to eat lunch at this restaurant. The service is hospitable; everyone we have come into contact with here has been so nice. The food is awesome, and I do not say that lightly! There truly is a large variety of food for... More

This place is always great. On this visit went for lunch, a great buffet of food that was fresh and tasty. The staff was friendly and made sure we saw all the characters during our visit. Overall this place is great to eat at when in the Animal Kingdom.

Great place for breakfast! We had the buffet, which was delicious, and the character interactions were great. I would have just been nice if they also had Minnie and Pluto there (had Mickey, Goofy, Donald, & Daisy).

4 adults and 2 kids under 10 and we all had a great dinner with a huge well prepared variety of both "African" flavors and American cuisine. It was literally the largest buffet I have ever seen for variety and none of it was overcooked or poorly made. We were a bit disappointed at the dining plan slections for kids... More
