We were on the free dining plan and decided to eat here as we were at Animal Kingdom for the day. We ate as part of our evening meal and had access to the african buffet. It served a range of food, which we all enjoyed. A typical theme park buffet

We went for dinner here during our trip. It was good! We enjoyed it. All of the characters came by at least once. The food was ok, with not as many options as we thought there would be. Go to Boma if you want that and for a cheaper price. If you have kids though, this is a fun place... More

Our family ate here while visiting the Animal Kingdom. All enjoyed a good variety of food and the grandkids enjoyed the characters coming to our table. We liked the buffet style. Food was very good and if you visit the Animal kingdom you should put this one on your list. Get reservations.

We had a 10:20 ADR for 3 adults and 3 kids (15, 11, 4). We checked in a couple minutes early and were seated on time. The staff was friendly and attentive without being overbearing. The food was excellent, a lot to choose from so everyone (including our picky eaters) left happy and full! Character interaction was awesome! They spent... More

The food was good but I thought it was a little overpriced. It had a different menu for sure. Good for a one time experience.

We loved our breakfast here. They were so nice and didn't rush us. The characters took their time and our kids loved it. The food was the best breakfast we had which included Cinderella's Royal Table, Chef Mickey, Akershus, and Boma. The food was very good and they had everything you could want to eat. It was the most reasonably... More

The food here is poor. Every dish my family tried just lacked flavor or seasoning. You will like this place if you like bland unoriginal food. The service here is mediocre and tends to disappear when you want something The characters walking around here are fun and the kids liked those Overall, deeply overpriced with uninspiring food, but you will...

We had late afternoon lunch reservations at Tusker House in the Animal Kingdom - African inspired food, but there were traditional American food items for the kids. Characters available to meet - Goofy, Donald, and Mickey. They come right to your table so you don't have to get up and stand in line, but you do need to be aware... More

We've been to other Disney character buffets in the parks and the food was just ok. This one the food was fantastic! Basically everything was good! It was hard to choose which food to go back for as your stomach only has so much room. Also the waitress was helpful in telling us about when to expect the characters to... More
