In my opinion the food is very similar at both, we enjoyed them both...However, putting them against eachother i would choose Chef Mickeys for the simple fact that the atmosphere is much more exciting and fun...Characters are great, interaction is great, and its just a fun, moore eventful breakfast...Its my daughters favorite place, she loves the dance party atmosphere and the towel waving and edancing with the characters...If you are just going for the food, and are looking for a bit more laid back atmosphere i would suggest Tusker House...But i never really noticed much of a difference in the buffets, maybe I'm wrong as it seems most people are saying Tusker House has better food but i remember pretty much similar buffet items...

So do you need to be in the Animal Kingdom park to go to the Tusker House, or can you go without going to the park? We were not planning on going to the AK park this time around.

Tusker house is in the park and you would need to use a park ticket to get inside to go there.

BeBeCee, don't feel bad! I do think everyone should try Chef Mickey's at least once! It's a Disney bucket list thing. If you're like us, you may not enjoy it as much as Tusker, but it's still fun! We've been to Chef Mickey's several times and even though it's no longer on our dining rotation, we don't regret it one bit!
Thanks! I am sure it will be great and we will have experienced it to know the difference!

We have done both and loved Tusker House! We had an early ADR, so as we were finishing up eating, a few people in our party went and got us FP's for KS. The food is great, the juice is yummy, and the service and character interaction was awesome!

Tusker House breakfast is awesome!

I wasnt crazy about CM food to be honest. Also, I didnt care for TH lunch. Breakfast is the best, in my opinion! Esp when you get an 8am ADR.

I would personally choose Tusker, there is a bunch of different styled food, with more "African" flair to it than just the regular American food you can find pretty much anywhere. You get all the characters in their little safari outfits, and I just like it better! I have heard a ton of negative comments about Chef Mickey's as well, so that helps me choose haha

I liked TH better than CM. Especially since the last time we went to CM we got stuck in a corner and it felt like the characters rushed through.

Can anyone tell me what the cost for the TH breakfast buffet is? It is vague when I look it up. It would be 2 adults and 2 kids.

We enjoyed both. I thought Tusker House had a better set up food and character wise.
