It took me 12 trips to finally book us a reservation at Tusker House and I couldn't believe I'd over-looked it for so long!
Tusker House is a character buffet restaurant in Africa in Animal Kingdom. The theming and decor is really beautiful, like an African marketplace. Mickey, Minnie, Donald, and Goofy are decked out in their finest safari attire and come to every table for some fun, photos, and autographs.
Now let's talk FOOD! My favorite part! The breakfast buffet is filled with traditional breakfast fare such as sausage, bacon, scrambled eggs, pastries, quiches, and the ever-popular Mickey Waffles, but there are also traditional African dishes such as bobotie, plantains, basmati rice, and coconut sweet potato casserole. YUM! The lunch and dinner buffet is jam-packed with various meat dishes- salmon, chicken, pork, as well as potato, rice, and vegetable dishes, all with an African flair. And don't worry about the little ones. They have corn dogs, mac n cheese, fruit, and other dishes that are sure to make them smile.
And oh my the desserts!!! You better save room for those!
While I was perusing the buffet on my second trip up, I witnessed a Cast Member showing a family around the buffet, pointing out which items were vegan and which were not. I thought that was pretty cool. Disney definitely knows how to cater to its guests. :)
Tusker House serves a variety of beverages, non-alcoholic as well as some alcoholic options. I so need to try that African Margarita! #NextTime
Just make sure you get a good night's sleep...or Goofy will mess with you if you fall asleep at the table ;)
