    Does the Tusker House Restaurant in Animal Kingdom have character meals during dinner?

    Hello Steve! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    My family dined at Tusker House Restaurant with Safari Donald for a fabulous breakfast buffet during our first Walt Disney World Resort vacation in March 2015. At that time, it had just been announced that Safari Donald and his Pals would be sticking around for Character meet and Greets well into the evening for dinner Guests.

    If you have Advanced Dining Reservations for dinner at Tusker House Restaurant, you had better bring a camera and autograph book because you will be meeting some classic Disney Friends while you dine.

    If you would prefer to dine without meeting Characters, I recommend booking Advanced Dining Reservations at nearby Tiffins Restaurant for a delightful and more reserved Table Service meal.

    Be sure to be ready to book your FastPass+ Selections for the new Pandora - The World of Avatar attractions - Avatar Flight of Passage and Na'vi River Journey, opening May 27, 2017. FastPass+ Selections may be made up to 30 days in advance of your visit to Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park or 60 days in advance as one of the benefits for Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel.

    Have a Wild Adventure!
