    Reservation at Tusker House for 7:30 pm. Park closes at 8:00 pm. Guidebooks say that the characters appear until 7:30 pm. Is that true and will there not be characters for a reservation at 7:30? Going December 13, 2018.

    Hi Jamie!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel to ask a question about your upcoming visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth.  I hope you are having a wonderful time charting out your adventure.  It's my pleasure to help answer your question today.

    Tusker House Restaurant is one of my families favorite places to dine in all of Walt Disney World.  We love the unique tastes and fun character interaction that come along with the meal.   I hope you and yours love it as much as we do.   Have no fear, your family will be able to greet and visit with each character during your meal.  You will not be rushed and you will not miss out on any opportunity to snap a photo or give a hug to Mickey and his pals in safari gear.   I have had both the earliest reservation and latest at this restaurant and both dining experiences were magical in every way.  The characters will not leave until every Guest has been greeted. 

    I hope this has helped.  Please let us know if we can answer any other questions for you about Character Dining or any other aspect of your vacation.  All the Disney Parks Moms Panelists love to lend a helping hand any chance we get.

    Dream as Dreamers Do,
