We arrived ten minutes early for our reservation to find that the average wait was forty-five minutes. If you didn't have a reservation it was three hours, which is almost the wait for Avatar!

As an adult the food selection is pretty good, for kids however it is very limited, no chicken nuggets, or hot dogs to be found.

The characters are AMAZING!!! They are quick and hit all the tables swiftly. The servers are also fast with drinks, and taking away plates.

If you want to knock off four characters without the line-ups, this is the place to hit!

Would I return? Certainly!

We had lunch at Tusker with my 2 year old twins and my parents. Tusker House is a buffet restaurant with a lot of options to choose from. They have a kids' area buffet at kids height level. The food is ok, not amazing but good. Better than Chef Mickey at The Contemporary in my opinion. Now, this restaurant is all about the character interaction which is great! The characters dance in the dining room and stop by every table to take pictures. We had Mickey, Donald, Daisy and Goofy in attendance. My kids had a blast. i would go back just because they had so much fun. The jungle juice is great!

family style buffet dining, most of the food was good, nothing special, although the salmon was tasty, but they just gave you small pieces so you had to make the treck back if you wanted more. best part were th visiting characters who spent lots of time with the kids, and doing pictures. wait service was good, you can get alchaholic beverages, which i'm sure most of the parents need at this point. just ok, i wouldn't do it again. also have reservations so you don't have to wait, especially with th kiddies.

As is true with any Disney character meal you are paying for the experience, not top notch food. This was definitely true at Tusker House. The buffet left a lot to be desired. But we did expect this when we booked so it wasn’t a huge disappointment. We did find the decor at this restaurant to be not as nice & interesting as what we’ve seen at other character meals. Overall it’s a good way to meet several characters. Just know what you are getting into and don’t expect much more.

The food is the standard Disney brunch…waffles, eggs, sausage, bacon, benedicts, cereal, salmon, pastries etc. The real reason to go is the character experience. We got to see Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Daisy and Donald. Worth every penny for my daughter and I.
