    Can I pay for our breakfast at Tusker House using giftcards?

    Hi Carly!  Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.
    So you're off to a safari feast with Donald and the gang, are you?  Rest assured, Carly, you are in for a wonderful meal with wonderful characters. 
    You can use official Disney Gift Cards as payment for your Character Dining experience at Tusker House Restaurant and any dining establishment at Walt Disney World resort.  I recommend the Jungle Juice!
    Todd Tip- Take advantage of being so close to Kilimanjaro Safaris in the morning while the majority of the animals are still active before their afternoon naps away from the intense Florida heat.  If you time your breakfast at Tusker House just right, you can be on one of the first trips into the lush African savanna as soon as the park opens, avoiding potentially long lines and saving a crucial Fastpass+ for Expedition Everest or prime seating for Finding Nemo The Musical.
    When my son was just 2 years old, he was enamored with Daisy Duck and had a Daisy plush that he took everywhere we went on that vacation.  When full-sized Daisy appeared behind him, the look on his face as he tried to figure out how his plush got so big is something I will never forget.  I hope your Tusker House experience provides endless magic for you, too.
    Have a wild time!
