I felt that the food was ok but nothing to get super excited about - salmon was dry and the African foods were not all that unusual or different. Chicken curries were good. Unless you really want to see these particular characters I would save...More

Family of 6 went in April 2018. Food was a great buffet and it was a nice break from the heat of the afternoon. Donald, Daisy, Goofy, Mickey all in safari gear. Note: There are no PhotoPass photographers there. I would do it again. Enjoy!

First, let me say that we used the Disney dining plan and I would highly recommend it to everyone staying at a Disney Resort. Dining is paid for in advance. You are given credits to use on meals and snacks. It includes alcoholic beverages at...More

The setting is fantastic. Tables large and clean, lots of room and friendly service. The buffet was pretty impressive but for $47usd you’d expect gourmet. So there were the characters to cuddle and take photos. That was easy. So. The food was only ok, everything...More
