FAT VEGETARIAN HEAVEN!!! The food was really great, lots of options for both vegetarians and meat eaters alike....More

We have been to lots of character meals and this one is not one we will return to. Characters move very quickly and don't spend time at your table. We went during lunch and had to wait over 40 minutes for our table with reservations....More

Our reservation was cancelled due to Hurricane Matthew. However, we were able to go the next day and they were still able to seat us. A+++ for that. The food and juice were excellent. It's served buffet style so it's all you can eat. As...More

We anticipated eating here for quite a while and, although good, not worth the price. For $60 I really felt we were shorted. Yes it's a character meal but the restaurant was overcrowded and bordered on a zoo. After waiting for over an hour for...More

Lovely Buffet, characters meet and greet were great. Food delicious albeit spicy for little ones. Pleasant room and did not seem much like a buffet as set up beautifully.

We have had season passes to Disney World for years. We have enjoyed the restaurants in all the parks and resorts. Today we visited the Tusker restaurant in Animal Kingdom. It is a character lunch that is $40 a person. The food was not good....More
