Tje breakfast buffet is one best at Walt disney World. I couldn't stop eating the glazed yeast donut holes. It is a fun place for the characters. If you are on the dining plan think about the value for the kids meal. You may want to pay cash for them. The never ending jungle juice was excellent.

This place is always great. On this visit went for lunch, a great buffet of food that was fresh and tasty. The staff was friendly and made sure we saw all the characters during our visit. Overall this place is great to eat at when in the Animal Kingdom.

Great place for breakfast! We had the buffet, which was delicious, and the character interactions were great. I would have just been nice if they also had Minnie and Pluto there (had Mickey, Goofy, Donald, & Daisy).

4 adults and 2 kids under 10 and we all had a great dinner with a huge well prepared variety of both "African" flavors and American cuisine. It was literally the largest buffet I have ever seen for variety and none of it was overcooked or poorly made. We were a bit disappointed at the dining plan slections for kids... More

If your on dinning plan it's a one meal sit down credit. The food was excellent, choices were great and food had seasonings... More

My family (6 adults and 2 kids) ate here for a character breakfast. The food is amazing. The variety is perfect for traditional folks and those willing to try yummy African treats. The interaction with the characters was just right. Chit chat, autographs and pictures. We never felt rushed. The server was so great. So helpful and fun. Loved this... More

This is a great breakfast buffet. The food choices are plentiful and are quite good. You will not leave hungry. The service was good and the restaurant clean. The tables are close together so sometimes it is a bit congested with the characters in the mix but it is doable.
