    We are travelling to Disney in Jan 2017. We are staying off site. We booked a 940 am character breakfast at Tusker House (our first character dining experience). As we are driving and will need to park, what time would you advise we get there?

    Greetings, Shelley, welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, we thank you for this excellent question regarding your suggested arrival time at Tusker House Restaurant at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park.

    Safari Donald Duck can't wait to welcome you and your travel party for a hearty breakfast at this Harambe marketplace eatery! May I suggest you have parked your vehicle at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park parking area no later than 8:30 AM in order to be ready to enter the theme park by 8:45 AM and allow yourself time to walk over to Tusker House Restaurant which is located in the Africa section of the theme park. 

    Shelley, you're a wise planner in booking a delicious breakfast to begin your adventures through all exciting experiences, shows, and attractions at this incredible theme park. Be sure to look closely at the relief carving details on the spectacular "Tree of Life" which includes a relief of David Greybeard, Dr. Jane Goodall's first observed chimpanzee. In fact, Dr. Goodall had a lot of influence in the design of the theme park. Don't forget to enjoy the delightful attraction, "It's Tough to be a Bug!" inside this amazing tree.

    Be sure to check out all the nighttime experiences which are outstanding, Shelley!

    Best Disney Adventures to you~
