This was our first meal on the Disney dinning plan and we thoroughly enjoyed it, meeting the Disney characters who stopped at each table for autographs and photos. The food is a Buffett and very nice, especially the chicken coconut curry. The puddings are not up to much, but not a problem as you are likely to be stuffed from... More

This is THE place in Animal Kingdom for breakfast. Not only is the food amazing (Mickey waffles, eggs, frittata's, bacon (THAT IS CRISPY!!), and so many other items I can't begin to go through them all), but you get that exceptional Disney service AND characters. Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, and Donald all make their way through the restaurant. They serve a... More

We booked our breakfast reservation at 180 days out to ensure we could eat here. So glad we did. Food was a buffet breakfast, all fresh and tasty and so much variety. The characters came round the tables, our 5 year old loved it, getting hugs, posing for photographs and getting autographs. Great place, excellent service. Will eat here again... More

Great place to have breakfast, lunch or dinner. You can make a reservation to eat with characters. In this place you will find Donald duck, Daisy, Pluto, Mickey and Minnie. The restaurant is decorated in an african'style. Food is so delicious.

We went to Tusker House for breakfast with our two children (age 5 and 8) in August 2016. It was the perfect start to our day at Animal Kingdom. The food was great and the restaurant had all the Disney Magic. Our server Yun, was brilliant and we had a great breakfast. Nothing was too much trouble, our drinks never... More

This one has been on my bucket list for quite some time. I finally got to try it. I've had the African/American food at Animal Kingdom before so I didn't find any surprises. The atmosphere is nice. The service was good. The character interaction is wonderful. If your kids don't like the food, the characters will definitely make up for... More

We went with our kids and grandkids to the Tusker House for a character breakfast. The food was very good and in ample supply. The characters were amazing. I had pictures with Goofy, Micky, and Daisy. The grandkids loved it and the adults had a good time. The grandkids especially liked the Jamba Juice (not sure what was in it... More

Breakfast with Mickey and pals fab. We picked this over other choices due to the selection of food choice. There was a large section from fruit loops (which my daughter loved), warm food bacon, waffles, pastries to my favourite donut holes. Mickey, Goofy, Donald and Daisy visited all table and spent time with each child was amazing to see the... More
