We had booked a breakfast at Cinderella's Royal Table (just my husband and I) and when Disney charged my credit card $150 before we ever got there, I cancelled it and booked this instead. I'm glad I did. For just two people at Tusker House,...More

We visited for lunch. Our reservation was for 12:30 and we were not seated until 1:15. The restaurant was manic, there were kids running around everywhere and the tables were all joined together with very little room to move. The buffet was very disappointing; the...More

I'm a huge fan of Disney, but this was a joke. Character meet and greet is fine if that's what you're there for, but the food is one notch better than Golden Corral. Everyone knows Disney is expensive, but jeez. 125.00 plus tip for barely...More

Never seen anything like it. We checked in for our reservation at 12:30 and were given a buzzer. We were eventually seated at 1:25. Absolute chaos in the restaurant, nowhere to move, massive lines for all buffet stations, empty food trays everywhere, dirty. Not what...More

Tusker House was another of the character dining experiences we enjoyed at Walt Disney World, and one we would definitely do again. Our daughter is vegetarian, and often finds buffets difficult. It is not always obvious which dishes are suitable for vegetarians, and it is...More

No, it’s a Table Service credit. You can not exchange up (QS for TS) you can only exchange down. 1 QS or 1 TS can be exchanged for 3 snack credits in a single transaction

Is it worth it ? It’s subjective, yea if you’re loaded then $50 a plate is ok. If you’re gonna do just one of these character dinners I’d do Cinderella Royal Table. Food was good, characters were awesome !!
