Tusker House restaurant at the Animal Kingdom theme park in Walt Disney World offers buffet-style dining with African flavors. It is conveniently located on the main path in the Africa section of the park, making it the perfect place to dine before or after a visit to the Kilimanjaro Safari attraction. This restaurant offers great variety to please everyone in your family, whether you are looking for kid-pleasing food or something unique and exciting for adults.
Don’t let the crumbling exterior and thatched roof fool you; Tusker House is a spacious and extremely clean. The décor is designed to look like an outdoor African market with separate buffet stations. True to Disney tradition, there are a ton of knickknacks and special touches with an incredible amount of detail. Enjoy the surroundings!
Safari Donald Duck and his friends will entertain you during the Character Breakfast and Lunch hours. The unlimited breakfast and lunch buffets include traditional American foods plus exciting dishes with a tasty African flair. While you are dining, Disney Characters will visit for photographs, autographs and laughter.
Disney characters do not appear during the dinner buffet hours. Diners will be fully satisfied as they feast on dishes such as vegetable samosas, potato wedges, curried rice salad, pearl couscous with sweet basil (my favorite!), tabbouleh and rotisserie chicken—spit-roasted on the 18-foot rotisserie “Wall of Flames.” There is a special kids’ buffet that caters to the little ones with delicious simpler fare as corndogs, macaroni and cheese, chicken drumsticks, PB&J and mashed potatoes. This section is not exclusive for the children- many adults will enjoy it as well. Don’t forget to save room for the incredible desserts!
Tusker House is a favorite for vegetarians and those with special dietary needs because of the wide variety of healthy options available. Reservations are highly recommended and can be made up to 180 days prior to your visit.
For something a little exciting and different, be sure to include a visit to Tusker House during your next Walt Disney World vacation!
