Animal Kingdom’s Tusker House buffet is one of the best-kept secrets around when it comes to Disney dining and Character Meals.
The food is flavorful and interesting, and the characters are high-quality, featuring Donald, Mickey and friends… all dressed in their Safari best!
If you are looking for a fun character meal in a unique setting with terrific food, I highly recommend this restaurant.
Service: Table Service, Buffet
Type of Food: American and African
Location: Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park, Africa

The buffet here changes daily, but along with the typical American fare of salads, chicken, pork loin, and mac and cheese, you’ll find African additions like couscous, tandoori tofu, basmati and jollaf rice, and entrees cooked with African spices.
At breakfast, you can choose between standards like Mickey waffles and oatmeal, and new-to-you items like Beef Bobotie Quiche and Mealie Pap.

Disney Food Blog Breakfast and Lunch Review! We ate TWO Meals at Once at Tusker House in Disney’s Animal Kingdom!
- Character dining here used to be a breakfast-only option; however, characters (Donald Duck and other members of the Fab Five) are at lunch and dinner these days as well.
- Book breakfast before the park opens to get in without waiting in lines with the crowds.
