Inside is rustic, very much like I remember for restaurants in Africa. Lots of room around the buffet for kids, not crowded there. We had a quiet spot in the corner and saw the characters go around twice while we ate. I really enjoyed the food. There was a wide variety of foods, and I am picky but there was... More

Always book a reservation for before the park opens and this restaurant never disappoints!!!! Early reservation is less crowded and can get thru buffet line and back to the table before characters start to come around !!!!

This was the second time my family and I have dined at Tusker House, this time was for a late lunch/early dinner and it was fantastic! (the previous time was for breakfast, which was also delicious!). We had to wait about 15 minutes past our reservation time, but we didn't mind. Our server was great and the kids loved the... More

None of the characters ever came to our table. They would get one or two away then leave. The food was terrible. We found multiple hairs in our meals. The services was not good either. We got our first drink and never saw again. It was very disappointing compared to all of the other wonderful meals and character experiences that... More

The food is of solid quality. The server told us the salmon was wonderful. It was ok, nothing to write home about. It was fun to try African dishes. The curry chicken and shrimp are delicious. The flourless chocolate cake is like a piece of fudge. Is it worth the price? To me, no but my family is not big... More

Family of three had an early morning breakfast and was no disappointed. There is a good selection of kid friendly food, big eating dad food, and even non traditional breakfast foods for non breakfast loving mom. The curry chicken was delicious! Mickey, Goofy, Daisy and Donald visit the kiddos in safari gear. Was a good decision to reserve here. Would... More

This was our second time eating at the Tusker House. So far, it is hands-down the best meal we've enjoyed for character dining. We've paid to do it twice in the last year because our kids love the food. The variety is sure to please everyone. It is Asian/African Foods: curry, grilled meats, fish/shellfish, rice, potatoes, a large variety of... More

Service was good, characters came quickly and we got good pictures, but good was just alright. My husband liked it more than I did. There were plenty of American choices in addition to the African offerings. We would eat here again.

We booked a character lunch here one day. Though they did have a handful of children's favorites such as mashed potatoes, chicken, and mac and cheese, the Tusker House buffet was filled with a delicious variety of dishes. There was Salmon and sliced Pork, Curry Chicken and a large number of sides (hummus, couscous, tabouleh). There were various breads and... More

Tusker House is one the best breakfasts in Walt Disney World. It is located in Disney's Animal Kingdom. The characters include Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck and Goofy all in safari outfits. The food is delicious. The best scrambled eggs anywhere. The jungle juice (papaya, orange and guava) is delicious. The buffet includes a wide variety of American breakfast... More
