The Tusker house is definitely one of our favorites. The food and service here are one of Disney's finest. My grand daughter had lots of fun dancing in the parade.

Great service, the breakfast buffet was really well put together!!! Worth the price! The jungle juice is really good and doesn't stop coming! The African style bloody Mary was great as well!

It was wonderful to see the characters, but the food was not that great. It was probably because it was African style and we just weren't used to it or maybe it just wasn't the greatest but definitely wouldn't go back again

The food here is very cafeteria oriented! Lots of starchy items, a few meat choices (baked chicken, tough baked sirloin) some rather offbeat foods with the African theme. Desserts were not even terrible appealing. Priced at $37 for an adult with an added 20% gratuity,...More
