We did not go to the Tusker House for the food. We went for the character breakfast. The food was good, but not particularly special. The whole breakfast idea is to get you feed quickly and then send around the Disney characters. We knew it was expensive but with little kids, this was a real treat. If you can afford... More

We made reservations for the breakfast buffet. We got to meet all the characters Donald, Mickey, Daisy, and Goofy. It was such a blast even for us 20 some year olds. The place was fun and inviting. They had traditional breakfast foods along with some fun African choices. And the plates and cups were made out of bamboo very fun.... More

We wanted to try breakfast inside Animal Kingdom. It was ok. Nothing was bad but nothing was great. Just like most other Disney restaurants. This is not the way Disney food used to be. It's as if they make it in one vast basement and heat it up and put it out. It's all about feeding the masses.

We accidentally came upon Tusker House. My husband went looking for somewhere to get an adult beverage while I stood in line with kids to see characters. So glad he went looking. The park had cleared out quite a bit by dinner time due to a storm that came through so the restaurant was pretty quiet. We sat at the... More

This restaurant offers a wide variety of options for most tastes. We basically tried everything on the buffet and we're pleased with most. It was nice to have the characters come around and take pics while we were eating. $45 per person is a little steep for lunch so I don't think I would return

Thank goodness we were on the dining plan. I would not have been very happy having to have paid $191.00 for a family of four to eat so-so food. The main entrees were salmon and pork loin, not sure how they can justify charging those prices and not having any steak or seafood on the Buffett.

Nice buffet. Even had items for vegetarians. Not your typical boring menu. Lots of characters while we were there. Kind of fun atmosphere. Definitely not fine dining. Decent tasting food. Nicely spiced and presented. Deserts were nice too.

As well as having a great selection of breakfast treats from the buffet Tusker is a great character meet destination. We got to see Safari Mickey, Donald, Daisy and Goofy. The cast members make sure everyone gets some time with the characters and are happy to take photos for you.

As breakfast buffets at Disney go this was really good. Fresh hot and lots of choices. Donald, Daisy, Goofy, and Mickey are all there and very accommodating and great with a shy 1yo. Playing peekaboo and being wonderful taking photos.

We had reservations here for a character dinner. They started dancing as soon as we sat down, so our son was riled up the whole meal. The buffet was pretty good and the Tusker Amber beer wasn't bad either. However, I saw the price of the meal and laughed. Thank goodness this was a table service on our meal plan.... More
