      Positive aspects of the product (pros): VEGAN FREINDLY
      Cons: None

      I ate here 2/24/18 for lunch. I informed the host that I was vegan at the time of check in and she gave me the allergy menu and then informed my server. Upon being seated my server confirmed my dietary needs and had a chef walk me through the buffet to let me know what foods were vegan and what foods weren’t. The food was very good, my server was attentive, and the characters were great. This place is a good value and great for the whole family. The personal attention I got from the chef is more than enough reason to recommend this place to anyone with a dietary concern. Well done Tuskegee House, I will be back.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Tasty hot healthy unique food with vegan items
      Cons: Expensive

      We were really hungry & lucked into Tusker having tables available for lunch. Top notch buffet with healthy unique vegan items (plenty of meat too). Better than your typical amusement park food & you get to hug Mickey too

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Had a great waiter and excellent wine choice
      Cons: Food was not up to par and extremely noisy

      My wife and I have stayed at Walt Disney resorts over 40 times. We have eaten at many restaurants both in the parks and at the resorts. Unfortunately this experience was one of the worst food experiences I’ve ever had at Disney. The chicken and pork or both extremely tough and chewy. The selection of gluten free options for my wife were limited at best. I felt the selection for a high dollar buffet was one of the poorest I’ve ever experienced at a Disney buffet. Even the desert choices were definitely not up to Disney standards.
      While I know and appreciate this was a character dinner, the amount of incessantly crying babies was beyond even the normal for a Disney buffet. The parents in our dining room were happy just to let their children scream in their chair while they continued eating.
      One positive note, the Merlot wine from South Africa was an excellent choice I would highly recommend It.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Variety and taste, Characters
      Cons: Kids options

      Lunch -
      Food - My husband and I enjoyed the variety and liked everything we tried. The kids were cranky (2 10 y/os) and they liked almost nothing.
      Setting was great.
      Characters were very accessible - we were there very slow time of year.
      Only disappointment is that there are no photographers at the character meals to take advantage of the photopass we spent a good $$ for.
      I think we would try this for breakfast as i suspect there is a lot to choose from or when the kids are a bit older for lunch again.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Great array of African flavors, great character interaction

      We've always loved the breakfast here, but it always disappointed me that there was not a large variety of African inspired dishes. That is not the case for lunch! The selection at lunch has an array of delicious flavors. I was also pleased to see they have the Jungle Juice available at lunch as well.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): characters
      Cons: food not great

      We only came to see the characters in a jungle environment. The food was basic and this will be the last trip where we eat anything buffet or family style. We never did see Minnie, we were lost in a corner but everyone else managed to visit except her. They seemed to run out of stuff quickly. It fills you up but is not a great food experience like others.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): good variety
      Cons: all the desserts had nuts

      My family and I ate dinner here with a reservation on New Years Day. Being that it was a holiday, a number of places had already been booked so we kind of took this reservation as not much else was available.
      I should point out that I am allergic to nuts. A chef came out to guide me through all the selections and he was very informative. My non allergic family just loaded up on what looked good. There was a very nice selection for all of us and most of the items tasted good. Some of the items had a bot of an exotic theme.
      Now unfortunately for me almost all had the deserts had nuts so I had an alternative desert brought to me that was nut free and also taste free. Still we had a nice meal here so I'd give the place a positive rating.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Tons of choices, opportunity to try different tastes, characters, chefs handle allergies exceptionally
      Cons: noisy, crowded seating, wait stuff was VERY busy

      Tusker House is an excellent buffet in the Walt Disney Resort arsenal. We had a later reservation, but found ourselves an hour early (hunger and heat!) and asked if we could bump up. No problem and we were seated in 5 minutes. Waitress was a bit off, and kept forgetting our drinks (we were able to ask another waiter).

      Food selection is great and there is something for everyone. Not a five star menu, but very tasty.

      Seating is tight, and we ended up basically sitting with another family, which is fine, this is Disney right??? Characters come around for photo ops and autographs (so much better than standing in line in the heat)

      Highly recommend, especially if you are on the dining plan. We tend to hit as many All you Can Eat as possible.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): breakfast buffet has delicious alternatives, accomodating for restricted diets, helpful cast members, fun environment
      Cons: none

      We did the Tusker House Breakfast buffet starring Mickey and Co. I have absolutely nothing bad to say about eating at Tusker House. I cannot eat Gluten and Dairy. When making the reservation I specified online and told the server. She called the Chef over who walked me around the offerings and told me what I could and could not eat. They have a separate station that is solely for gluten-free foods and other allergens. The cast members are eager to please and make fresh gluten and dairy-free Mickey Waffles. Smile

      The buffet offers typical light fares but also neat alternatives like tasty sweet potato dishes and roasted potatoes. There were also other types of meats available. Great food for the adult-types.

      We had fun getting our pictures with Mickey and friends and the servers make sure that everyone gets to see ALL the characters. Even if you miss one they will be sure to help you meet one of them on your way out. They only let a few people into the restaurant at a time so it never got very crowded and we didn't have to wait in long lines for food.

      It is a fun atmosphere. If you are looking for somewhere to eat that is not loud, however, I would not recommend breakfast at Tusker House. I thought it was a fun way to start the day at Animal Kingdom!

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): characters, buffet style, a little of something for everybody
      Cons: loud and food not that good

      Maybe it was because I was dining after 5 and the restaurant closed at 6. Maybe it was an off day. Maybe I was expecting Boma. I don't know, but this simply wasn't very good. I had a 1710 reservation and was seated after a short wait. The first thing I noticed is how loud it is inside. The decor is beautiful inside and all tile and plaster, wood and glass and with very little textiles to absorb the sound so everything accumulated and echoes. The character interaction was good though and they do a parade through the dining areas with a trail of children and characters. The staff and service was good, but the food was not kept stocked and being close to closing they did not replenish so I didn't have a lot of choose from. Dessert for me was a lone sad cookie. They did have a lot of wonderful sounding choices but the dishes were empty so I couldn't say how they even looked. I left here filled up with fruit and salad and a little meat and veggies and rather disappointed. I suppose I was expecting much more since I had read so many glowing reviews of this place. The food flavors and choices were similar to Boma's but very limited. I was disappointed in the rather small selection in comparison. The food was all okay but just okay. I would return if others in my party wanted to dine there, and certainly earlier in the day and not so close to closing, but I would not return as a solo diner.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): The food, the characters
      Cons: The confusing check-in

      We have previously only eaten here for breakfast, but this time, we went for lunch. We were slightly disappointed that Donald did not meet us outside for a picture, but he was inside, along with the other characters. The food here was very good, many different interesting salads to choose from, lots of buffet items, and a carving station as well. The theming is very well done, and the food is always good. A little pricey, but worth it to us.

      Cons: None

      I was pleasantly surprised with the food - great variety, plenty of it. We went for a late lunch which turned out great since AK was closing early that day. 4 grandkids practically had Mickey, Minnie, Goofy and Pluto to themselves and plenty of room to march in the parade around the restaurant!

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Atmosphere, Characters
      Cons: Cost, slow service

      Waited long time even with reservation. Felt very rushed at times. Server was never around. Had to ask other severs for drink refills and when characters would be around our table. For the cost there are other places i will choose next time. Was not overly impressed with the food. Seemed ordinary at best.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Best food at WDW
      Cons: none

      If you don't like ethnic food, don't bother (I guess you could make do, but why?). Really good food, nothing too spicy (though I do like spicy), but flavorful. Huge buffet, with a carving and dessert station. Those here who say little selection I am guessing just did not like what they did have. But my sense is that many of these would have been good dishes to order as individual plates. We ate our fill, and didn't need dinner that night!

      We went on a very busy day, but it did not feel busy. The characters spent plenty of time--we even had Safari Mickey come back to our table, and he seemed to be wandering around a bit looking for things to do!
