Tusker House Restaurant

This Harambe Marketplace style restaurant offers character dining for breakfast and lunch. Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck and Goofy will meet and greet you at your table for pictures and autographs.

The buffet offers American and African fare. For more adventurous eaters, try Peri-Peri marinated baked salmon and seafood stew with tamarind bbq sauce. Pickier eaters will enjoy oven-roasted red skin potatoes, carved beef top sirloin and mashed potatoes. Make sure to save room for the warm banana-cinnamon bread pudding, it’s delicious!
