7/04/10 Tusker House - Donald's Safari Breakfast

Arrived at a quarter to nine for our 910 am ADR at the Tusker House. It was an EMH and we are staying at the BWI.

We were one of the first families seated in our dining room after skipping a chance to pay for a picture of the family with Donald upon entry.

We were promptly queried about beverage choices by our waiter and off we went in search of goodies to eat.

This actually is a very good breakfast buffet. Lots of choices and most were pretty good. Our family hammered the crispy bacon, well done scrambled eggs, Mickey pancakes, fruits, breads , donuts etc.

We had one of the best waiters we have ever had at WDW for a buffet. Clifford was amazingly cheery, attentive and speedy. He should be cloned.

Thanks for posting. I'm so glad you enjoyed Tusker House. This is a must for our family to ever DIsney trip. When we went they did not have Mickey pancakes but had waffels but my son only eats pancakes so I'm so excited they have it.
Thanks

Thanks for the review. We are going for the first time on August 12th and I'm really looking forward to it. I'm glad to hear people have enjoyed it in the past.

Can someone clarify about the picture? Is buying the photo your only chance to meet Donald? Thanks!

We went to Donalds at Tusker back in Dec 08. It was so much fun. I loved it! Such an energetic atmosphere.

No. They all do come around to the tables to say hi and snap a few photos and give autographs.

Even though this was the lsat of our many meals, it was my son's absolute favorite, not just the food, but the character interaction. He pretty much avoided all the characters until this meal. He even made me wait for Goofy to come to our table. That was huge!

We did this breakfast in May and my son LOVED the ham!! All the other selections were wonderful as well! The juice was fantastic! As for the picture with Donald, as you enter and have your picture taken with Donald, that is the only time you will see him and he DOES NOT sign autographs! That was the only thing about the whole experience I was not happy with. DS wants to do this breakfast again when we go in 2012 for DD's first trip!

Our two boys enjoyed it very much when we went in 2008! Since we are going this August we weren't able to get a reservation. The Jumba Juice is really delicious and we always enjoyed their food. The characters always make their rounds to the tables and got their autographs and photos taken.
