The flavors were great and there were plenty of options. You know what bothers you; make your own choice here. The Tusker House buffet has something for everyone. Reviews 70. Perhaps most families are fine with mom or dad taking photos of the kids and not being in the shot, but that’s presumptuous, and the alternative is kindly interrupting someone at a table next to you (which we’ve found is not usually imposing, as most times they want the same thing, and ask you to reciprocate) or not having everyone in the photo. I’ll get it on our next trip! It was converted into a buffet in 2008, and I don’t think the actual character dining was added until well after that. I noticed in the photos what appeared to be outside seating.

When you’re in the buffet area, make sure you look up. Instead of waiting their turn, a few children in our dining room literally grabbed onto the characters (refusing to let go) while their parents stood in the corner and watched. When the characters did show up, it was only for quick poses and then they were off again. With that said, we’ll wrap up our Tusker House review.

You’ll see the “unpleasant” details like power lines and random/odd signs, which give more authenticity and make it feel less like a sanitized version of a foreign locale. In addition to the food, here in our Tusker House review we’ll cover the atmosphere, décor and character interactions. Six years ago we ate here and as we entered the restaurant we took picture with Donald Duck. Since you are in Africa, Donald and his friends are all dressed in variations of Safari themed outfits. The carving station had only salmon and pork. We’ll start with the parts of dessert I don’t have pictures for. Tusker House is a character buffet within Animal Kingdom. Love this place.More, This is the version of our website addressed to speakers of English in the United States. It’s also a great way to get back into the park early, however it would be better if it was closer to Pandora. It is out of this world! Everyone will get their turn. There was a spicy coconut shrimp curry, along with a Cape Malay chicken curry. Daisy looks fabulous in her Safari best and was equally fabulous with the girls. Share your thoughts in the comments. I was a little concerned it might be a bit fishy, since it is roasted whole, but there was none to be found. Overall, Tusker House is a great option for just about anyone. This is a must do for us every trip. I wasn’t sure if the girls were going to let him go. For all of these reasons, we highly recommend Tusker House. Overall we had a really good visit and would recommend Tusker House if you are going to Animal Kingdom. Service: The restaurant is always busy & packed, but we’ve never once had a bad server. Much like most Disney breakfasts, I would not call it groundbreaking though. Personally I have always found the best combination that fits into our park plans is doing a character breakfast in the park. The reason we love Tusker House for this is that it does all this (classic characters, good location in park) and more. I'm so sad to give this a low score, but we had a terrible experience here. We’ve seen the ear thing many times. Some parts Copyright © The Walt Disney Co. Tusker House at Disney's Animal Kingdom Resort. These Were the Wait Times in Disney World on November 26th!
