    So we have a ADR at tusker house in Animal Kingdom, at 3:15 for lunch. Worried that the characters won't be there most the time?

    Hi Kelli,

    Are you ready to refuel after a busy day at Disney's Animal Kingdom? Well, you have chosen a great spot to do so. Tusker House happens to be my youngest son's favorite character meal. The food is delicious and bountiful and I always enjoy seeing the characters in their safari best.

    Do not worry. If you have reservations, you will see all the characters! In fact, sometimes the more off-peak meal times are less crowded and this could mean you get a little more one on one time as they stroll around your table. So, have those cameras ready, your smiles bright and those autograph books at your side! Typically, Donald greets guests before you are seated and the others mingle with you during the meal. 

    Be sure to try the curry chicken and the basil couscous. These are my favorites on the buffet. There are also lots of kids' faves, such as mac 'n' cheese, corn dog nuggets and mashed potatoes. 

    Bon Appetit,
    ~Allison L
