We've been to TH numerous times. It's our go-to for a delicious, character -theme meal. We always eat lunch there. This time was the exception to our TH experiences. First, we had to wait half an hour past our reservation time to be seated. The place was packed. The line for the buffet stretched on and on. Service was mediocre,... More

We opted to do a character dining breakfast here. During the character dining, you will need to take pictures with your own camera. The food choices are great! Try the orange-mango juice they serve. It's great. Being a buffet, there are choices for everyone and you can eat as much as you want. Any restaurant that serves Mickey Waffles is... More

My brother loves Tusker house and their food, so we made a reservation for dinner on our recent trip. The food was fantastic, the characters were ok, our waiter was the worst waiter I have ever had at a Disney property. There is plenty of food and even picky eaters will find something, while it is a buffet, I always... More

We ate lunch here and our 4-year-old loved it. She ate so much! We thought the quality of the food was great and the characters and service were wonderful. The chicken drumsticks were the most tender I've ever had and the most flavorful. My kid ate 3 of them. The curries and other dishes were very tasty!

My family of four ate here on 9/13/16 for a late lunch. It was raining when we arrived and there was nowhere to wait out of the rain as it seemed as though all of Animal Kingdoms visitors that day were standing under the patio area. It took 15 minutes to reach the hostess desk to sign in. We were... More

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...
