    Hello, I’m going to WDW in 2021 and I’m already planning! We’re probably going to Tusker House and I’m wondering do they sign your autograph book? Some people say they don’t sign and some say that they sign. I know that things can change in 2 years.

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Sofia!

    When you say, “I’m already planning,” those are magic words to your friendly Disney Parks Moms Panelists. We’re always planning and dreaming about our next visit to the Walt Disney World Resort, and we totally understand how much fun it is to look at menus, photos of resort hotel rooms, and read about all the adventure in store for us. 

    My family had a fabulous meal at Tusker House Restaurant last year, so I’m very happy to hear it’s on your list for your 2021 visit. The theming in Harambe Market at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park is so incredible – be sure to spend lots of time reading signs and exploring all around the marketplace, both inside and outside of Tusker House Restaurant. Once inside for your meal, I hope you’re as delighted as we were by Safari Donald Duck and his friends. Not only are they absolutely adorable in their safari gear, but we had truly wonderful interactions with each character as they visited our table. 

    Sofia, my family did get autographs from each character during our character dining experience at Tusker House Restaurant last year. As you mention, character experiences are subject to change; you’re likely reading mixed reports because sometimes the restaurant is so busy that the characters are unable to sign, preferring to spend more time interacting with Guests at each table. There’s never a guarantee that a character will sign, but in my experience, if they don’t sign, you’ll receive a signature card or another souvenir of your character experience. As you plan for your visit, I recommend reading the Disney Parks Blog for news about new or changing character experiences around Walt Disney World Resort.

    I hope you enjoy your meal at Tusker House Restaurant! They serve one of my favorite Disney beverages: Jungle Juice, which is a mixture of passionfruit, orange, and guava juices and tastes so good. Along with African-inspired flavors and American favorites, they also serve the most delicious banana bread pudding on the buffet. YUM!

    Have so much fun planning, Sofia, and remember: your fellow planners here on the Disney Parks Moms Panel are here to help as you count down the days to your visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth.

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
