4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This was our first visit to a character dining restaurant so we were excited. The food was buffet style with African cuisine which we really enjoyed. We were disappointed as we were sat at the table and Donald Duck went through all the tables in our area except ours which we were upset about. All the other interactions were great... More

I foolishly booked the Jungle Book dinner package which is the same idea as the Fantasmic dinner package at Hollywood Studios. I didn't research it first (big mistake) and ended up wasting over $300. Tusker House as a character meal was very good. When I booked this I didn't realize it was a character meal, so that was a nice... More

I went yesterday and had a great time. The characters came to each table and posed for as many pictures as you want. They were also super friendly and watching kids interact with them is truly magical. I even felt like a kid again. The food was good and I am a picky eater. Of course you need reservations weeks...

Andrew, the server, was fantastic! The setting of this Animal Kingdom restaurant was amazing. They also had characters roaming around, meeting guests. Periodically, they characters had a celebration and they danced in conga lines with the guests. That was a lot of fun. My 6 y/o enjoyed the kid friendly buffet. Some of the food was really good. I am... More

If you are there for characture dining, it is great! I did not enjoy the food but my husband did. At $42 a person, I guess I was expecting more. I watched a mother struggle to find the kids something, the ended up with corn dog bites, Mac and cheese and applesauce. The food was ok but not to many... More

We enjoyed Tusker House for the Breakfast Buffet - twice! It was that good. It was $30,00 per person - this included unlimited food and 'jungle juice' as well as a character breakfast. Foos was great. Service, wonderful.

This buffet restaurant has great food - broiled salmon, a carving station, baked chicken, couscous, wild rice and several other grains, vegetables and sides. Mini corn dogs and mac and cheese for the kids but a great experience for them to try other types of foods. The banana bread pudding with vanilla sauce was excellent. The characters - Mickey, Donald,... More

We did several character meals while on this trip, but the Tusker House was one of our favorites. We had a buffet breakfast that was fun of deliciousness: pastries, donuts, African themes food, and so much more. The kids loved it! Plus it was fast and easy so we could enjoy the park.
