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

For our first visit here to Tusker House dinner buffet it wasn't all that bad. This buffet had several different items, my favorite was the pork which was tender and juicy. Having a rather larger then usual group (10) it appeared every one liked their meal. Having the characters visit was a plus as well.

This was our second visit to Tusker House, we pre booked so checked in and were shown to our table after a short wait in the shaded seated area. The cast members outside were very cheerful and friendly. It was busy inside and we had to wait for our server to order drinks. The food was nice overall with a... More

We have eaten both breakfast and lunch here. Both buffets have a large choice of items to choose from. The character interaction is wonderful here.

I met my cousin & her husband in Animal Kingdom for the day & we walked into Tusker House for lunch since it was close to where we were in the park. So glad we did! The food was excellent, good quality & variety. The characters came around & even did a little parade with the kids which was cute.... More

All of the Disney characters were so friendly and visited every table. They never made families feel rushed and even signed autographs and took picture wth families. The food was pretty good. It was your stereotypical buffet style meal, but there was a wide selection of meats, veggies, sides and desserts.

Worth the price for tasty food and getting personalized visits from some of Disneys famous characters - for us it was Daisy, Donald, Goofy and Mickey all in safari gear. Dinner is a combination of typical American favorites (chicken, sirloin roast) coupled w African favorites like mango chutney, curry chicken and broiled root vegetables. Don't forget to try the flourless... More

This was our first character meal in Disney, at the time we thought it was ok but as the holiday went on and we had more character meals we realised how bad this one was. We had a Lunchtime reservation, when you first walk in and see the room where the food is it's very impressive, decor is fab and... More

This restaurant provides good value for Disney. (I'm sure after they read this we can expect an increase). It's a buffet so go when you are hungry. There are lots of options for the entire family and the ambiance is nice. The roast beef was delicious. Like any buffet, the desert selection was forgettable and could improve. We did it... More
