    Dinner at Tusker House is listed as 4-5:30. Do they close or seat the last people at 5:30? I have a 5:15 reservation. AK closes at 5 that day, how late will the restaurant stay open? Since it's a buffet I'd rather not arrive at closing time.

    Hi Renee,

    My family ate at Tusker House during our last Disney vacation in March.  They have an extensive, exotic, and delicious buffet.  I think you'll really enjoy dining there.

    More than likely, they will continue seating guests until 5:30.  Rest assured that the Cast Members working at Tusker House will not rush you through your dining experience.  If you are concerned about this, I recommend that you arrive early for your reservation.  Often when we have arrived early for an advance dining reservation, we have been seated early.  Even if you are seated at your stated reservation time, I'm sure you'll have time to enjoy your meal at a leisurely pace. 

    Wishing you a vacation sprinkled with extra pixie dust!
