    What restaurant is best; Tiffins or Tuskegee House

    Hi, Jason!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    At Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, you will have the opportunity to explore the magic of nature.  During your visit, you will encounter exotic animals, delight in engaging entertainment, and experience many thrilling attractions.  The dining options at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park are also top-notch.

    When deciding between Tiffins Restaurant and Tusker House Restaurant, it's simply a matter of what type of dining experience you're looking for.  Tiffins Restaurant is considered a fine or signature dining establishment.  The adventurous menu at Tiffins Restaurant features fare from all over the world for lunch and dinner.  It is worth noting that if you will be using a Disney Dining Plan, meals at Tiffins Restaurant currently cost two Disney Dining Plan entitlements.  

    Tusker House Restaurant is a buffet-style, character dining experience, offering breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  On the buffet, you can expect to find some familiar choices, mixed with a variety of foods featuring African flavors.  Although character experiences are always subject to change, you can expect to meet Safari Donald Duck and some of his friends at Tusker House Restaurant.

    I really don't think you can go wrong with either of these dining choices.  Since Tiffins Restaurant and Tusker House Restaurant are both quite popular among Walt Disney World Resort guests, I would highly recommend making your reservations well in advance.  Dining reservations for all Walt Disney World Resort table-service restaurants can be made 180 days in advance.
