This was a buffet style restaurant with the characters being the star. We had Mickey, Minnie, Daisy and Donald Duck and Goofy Each character came around and very obliging for pictures and interaction. The meal has some African themed food in curries and couscous and very tasty The table service of our drinks was excellent. My only complaint would be... More

One of the best buffets in Walt Disney World. Nice variety of offerings with an African influence, but something for everyone. Great spot to cool down and recharge during a hot busy day in the Animal Kingdom. Service is always friendly and efficient, wonderful character interaction.

We were a family of four. The service was excellent. It's a buffet with everything you could possibly want - including low down food counters for young children. Hot, cold, sweet, savoury - all there and you can keep going - if you want. And there are the 'stars' - Mickey, Daisy, Goofy - who will give you plenty of... More

Booked this specifically to get the jungle dining package to enable us to have reeerved seating for the 9pm show. Great theming and character dining (we saw donald and daisy in safari outfits) Good african style buffet, similar to that served by Boma restaurant at AKL,; however, our picky DS 12 found very little to suit him, so we ended...

This was one out of five character meals we did this past trip. It was my favorite. The prime rib melted in my mouth. Everything I tried was excellent. It was mine and my sisters birthday so they gave us a card signed by all of the characters and a mini cupcake. The characters came by a few times while... More

This restaurant was the highlight of our Disney trip. The food was decent there's a buffet with lots to pick from. My toddler is extremely picky and he enjoyed everything I put on his plate. The character interactions were the most amazing here, after doing 4 character meals this was our favorite. The characters came up to the tables with... More

We went here with a 1 1/2 year old and 3 1/2 year old. They LOVED it. They are not very picky eaters so they were fine with the food choices. Our younger one loves hummus so she was a happy girl! They had mini corn dog nuggets, mac n cheese, chicken drumsticks, cold cuts, and cheese cubes for the... More

Every year we stop at the Tusker house for breakfast - it is a must do before we hit the Animal Kingdom park. We do it for the food, not the characters. The ham and the mustard sauce are spectacular. Make sure you try the potatoes too, they are great!

This is really such a fun place to visit for great Character time! The food, however, could be a little more kid friendly! I loved so many different ethnic choices, but my 5 year old daughter didn't eat a whole lot! We were here for approximately one hour and I think the characters came through at least 3-4 times! We...

This is our third family visit to Disney and our 6th trip to Tusker House. So you can see we usually do two breakfasts here a trip. The food is great for a Disney buffet. We love the characters safari outfits. It's one of the only places you can see Daisy. Most of the other meals have Minnie. The jungle... More
