Ok, so it may not be one of the best meals EVER, but it's pretty darn good. The buffet offers a lot of African food cooked very well. There's an abundance of fresh, colorful and tasty delights. But don't come here just for the food...More

Didnt like the food selection, I'm sure they can do better! Character visit on every table was rushed in my opinion. And so with our wait staff who seemed to rush you to eat, pay then go. There are better options to see Mickey, Donald,...More
