    The Disney site says Tusker House lunch at Animal Kingdom runs from 11:00-5:00. Are the characters there until 5:00pm? If not, when do characters leave?

    Hello Elizabeth!

    Tusker House Restaurant is one of my absolute favorite character dining experiences in all of Walt Disney World, and I hope you enjoy it just as much!  In my experience, lunch has ended around 3:30pm.  At that time, the charming Disney Characters are making their exit.  Dinner usually picks up at 4pm without the presence of characters.  You will find some unique and delicious dishes along with some standard American fare.  Have fun in the Harambe Village Marketplace, and make sure you spend some time with Safari Donald Duck!

    Thanks for visiting us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I wish you a truly magical vacation.
