Breakfast at the Animal Kingdom Theme Park's Tusker House Restaurant

Tusker House

  • Serves Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner (Buffet style)
  • Character Dining (Breakfast only)
  • Accepts Disney Dining Plan - (1) Table Service per person
  • Reservations Recommended

Located in Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, the Tusker House restaurant is a nice diversion from the activities of the theme park. Especially on a hot day.

The first time I tried it out, was in June of 2008. It was maybe 10 or so in the morning, and we had been at the Animal Kingdom Theme Park for a couple hours and were pretty hungry.

Being at Disney World several years in a row, Cindy was aware that the Tusker House was a reservation type restaurant, but I wanted to give it a try. The hostess was very cordial and checked for an empty place, and we were allowed in.

While the Tusker House has breakfast, lunch and dinner, the breakfast is character dining, and is actually listed as "Donald's Safari Breakfast at Tusker House Restaurant on the Disney Dining Plan. Donald and friends move about while you eat, and you can take pictures with them if you like.

It was the first time any of us, including Cindy, had been there, so it was a new experience for all of us.

The breakfast is a buffet style and pretty good food. Normal breakfast type foods (eggs, potatoes, bacon, sausage, etc.), plus some of their own specialties.

Before entering, a photographer takes your picture several times, and you're offered the chance to buy a couple. If I'm not mistaken, I bought a couple for my daughter and granddaughter to have for memories.

Mickey Mouse with Cindy The staff was fantastic, the food was really good and the characters were awesome, so I gave the Tusker House a rating of five stars. Cindy also loved the experience and gave it a five star rating. My daughter, Luvenia and granddaughter, Fernan were also pleased... Go figure! :-)

Outside, authentic drummers from Africa were performing and allowing the crowd to participate. A lot of fun for everyone, and a really nice ending to a wonderful breakfast.

The Tusker House, in Disney World's Animal Kingdom Theme Park is on our list as a "Do Again", and is highly recommended, especially if you have children and want to do a nice breakfast with characters.

Reservations are recommended. We were lucky that time, but I wouldn't try it again without making reservations.
