    What is the charachter breakfast in animal kindom like - grandson would like to see Donald Duck.

    Hi, Frances! Donald's Safari Breakfast at Tusker House in the Animal Kingdom is one of our favorite character breakfasts. You start the experience with a photo op with Donald outside of the entrance. I was wearing a Mickey hat and a Mickey shirt last time we were there. He took my hat, covered Mickey's face on my shirt and proceeded to say "cheese" for the picture, removing any trace of the iconic mouse. Clever duck.

    You then get brought inside and seated at your table. Your waiter will come up, pour you a glass of Jamba juice (orange-mango-ish kinda juice) and explain the complex concept of how a buffet operates. You ask for coffee and then proceed to the buffet. There are all sorts of goodies at the buffet, from traditional dishes like biscuits and gravy, Mickey waffles and scrambled eggs to dishes with more African-flair, such as plantains, sweet potatoes and a delicious bread pudding.

    The characters who made rounds last time we were there included Mickey, Minnie and Goofy. We've seen Daisy here in the past too. At some point, a person will unavoidably come to your table and try to sell you the photo package. Another happening, which is actually awesome, is Mickey leading a musical parade around the restaurant, equipping kids with musical objects beforehand. 

    When you're done, pay the bill and hit Kilimanjaro Safaris next door.

    It's a really good time.
