On my family's trip to Disney we did all character dining, and unfortunately Tusker House was my least favorite of the trip. I base this really on the food and atmosphere itself; the character interactions were great but the food and Disney "charm" lacked. We...More

Always book a reservation for before the park opens and this restaurant never disappoints!!!! Early reservation is less crowded and can get thru buffet line and back to the table before characters start to come around !!!!

This was our second time eating at the Tusker House. So far, it is hands-down the best meal we've enjoyed for character dining. We've paid to do it twice in the last year because our kids love the food. The variety is sure to please...More
