If you headed to the far-east corners of Asia or have plans to explore the savannas of Africa, you will want to stop in Harambe for a delicious meal with your favorite Disney friends at the Tusker House Restaurant as you explore Disney's Animal Kingdom park. 
It's Perfect for the Entire Family!
This character meal is one of our family's "must-dos" every time we visit Animal Kingdom park.  The meal is hosted by Safari Donald Duck and you will find more Disney friends, typically Daisy, Mickey, and Goofy, all dressed up in their Safari outfits there too.  We have always found the character interaction at this restaurant to be fantastic and not rushed.  The buffet is 1 table service credit on the Disney Dining Plan and advance dining reservations are highly recommended.
The Tusker House is a fantastic choice for any family! Their dishes include family favorites, as well as specialty dishes highlighting the flavors of Africa.  On our most recent trip, I was pleasantly surprised to find a large number of gluten-free items displayed on a separate food bar for guests! Like most Disney buffets, you will  find a child-size buffet (although everyone is welcome to partake) full of kids' favorites such as Mickey waffles, scrambled eggs, tater tots and assorted pastries at breakfast.  Lunch/Dinner for children include macaroni and cheese, drumsticks and corndog nuggets to name just a few choices.  Notable dishes from the adult buffet include salmon filet, prime rib, seafood stew, and Cape Malay curry chicken.
Add the Tusker House to your Itinerary!
My family loves to start their adventure at Animal Kingdom park with a delicious fun-filled breakfast at the Tusker House.  If you are looking for a character meal with your favorite Disney friends in a unique setting, with a terrific variety of foods, then we recommend adding the the Tusker House restaurant to your itinerary!
