This is a great character restaurant to take your children too. We had mostly adults in our party and enjoyed the interaction very much. They are very attentive at this restaurant.

This place was really awesome and the characters were definitely an added bonus. Buffet was extensive and delicious, and they do have Mickey waffles. We paid around $45 per person for this breakfast which was definitely a bit expensive but I guess you pay for...More

Customer service is lacking here. Our waiter was only interested in the tip and didn't fill or even ask what we wanted to drink. WE had to ask several times to have our water refilled. Felt as if he was not doing his job and...More

We were able to snag 8am reservations for Tusker House. I was excited to be in Animal Kingdom when it was empty- as the park opened at 9am. We got there right for 8am, had a tiny wait and then were escorted in. The atmosphere...More

Good character experience. Saw the Classic Disney Characters including Mickey,Minnie, Donald, Daisy and Goofy. Food was good, not great....typical Disney buffet. Once we got in service was good but check in was problematic...actually had a cast member be rude which was unusual.
