Early in the morning we started out, entered Animal Kingdom, and entered the world of Tusker House. It was amazing. Pictured above is the marketplace, which contains the buffet. The buffet contains your traditional breakfast (including Mickey Waffles, pastries, toast, fruit, eggs, bacon, sausage, and LOX) and traditional African dishes. Link to Disney’s menu here.
Ok. So this is a different type of safari adventure than the one the Beach Boys are talking about. BUT it is a culinary adventure that shouldn’t be missed. I’ll admit that I was hesitant to try this restaurant because I wasn’t sure I’d be up for the traditional African cuisine – but there are other options for the cautious. The characters are very attentive. At one point in your experience there should be a song and dance with a parade for kids.
For one dining credit, you get a delicious buffet and amazing characters (Donald, Daisy, Mickey, Goofy). While I did see a few people walking up without reservations, I highly recommend making a reservation as early as possible.
The best part about this restaurant is the attention to detail that may make you think, for a slight second, that you are taking a dining break while on an African safari. So definitely ride this wave if you can.
