    I have client's attending the park that want character dining. They are lodging at a Disney adjacent property and want to know if they would be granted access to Animal Kingdom for the dining experience?

    Hi Celeste!

    Character dining is such a fun experience at Walt Disney World! I absolutely love dining with the characters and enjoy watching them interact with guests. I will never forget the first time my son ate at Chef Mickey's; I loved seeing the look of pure joy on his face when he saw Mickey Mouse approach our table. 

    Tusker House is the character dining experience at Disney's Animal Kingdom. To enjoy the character dining experience at Disney's Animal Kingdom, all Guests will need the following:

    1. Valid park admission
    2. A theme park reservation
    3. An advanced dining reservation for Tusker House

    The location of the guests' lodging does not affect their ability to visit the Walt Disney World theme parks and restaurants.
