We are frequent WDW goers. Let me first start out by saying this is character buffet and will lighten your wallet. We were three adults and a child under 9- the total with tip was around $201. If your on dinning plan it's a one meal sit down credit. The food was excellent, choices were great and food had seasonings... More

Restaurant Appearance - The decor is very well done. There are a lot of details. Reservations - Definitely need! Staff - Wait to be seated - we did have to wait about 15... More

My family (6 adults and 2 kids) ate here for a character breakfast. The food is amazing. The variety is perfect for traditional folks and those willing to try yummy African treats. The interaction with the characters was just right. Chit chat, autographs and pictures. We never felt rushed. The server was so great. So helpful and fun. Loved this... More

This is a great breakfast buffet. The food choices are plentiful and are quite good. You will not leave hungry. The service was good and the restaurant clean. The tables are close together so sometimes it is a bit congested with the characters in the mix but it is doable.

We have been to many character meals in our various trips to Disney, and have enjoyed them all. This was the first time eating here at Animal Kingdom. This experience was not worth the $49 per adult for dinner. Make a reservation at Chef Mickey in the Contemporary instead.

We had an early morning reservation right as the park was opening. The timing worked great to get an early Safari ride and check out the baby gorillas right afterwards. The food was fantastic as buffets go. Very diverse offerings and good quality (kids and husband appreciated the Krispy Kreme, I loved the chicken curry and sliced ham in addition... More

I have never tried ethnic African cuisine before and all the food that I tried was very good. From the corn bread, coos-coos, salmon and of course the deserts.

We booked this place online with the Disney app. We were shown to our table very quickly. Inside the restaurant was quite dark, not as bright and light like crystal palace, the food was average, there was salad and good selection of hot food, but they overload the greens with black pepper which my four year old daughter found it...
