With design cues from a Harambe marketplace, the main buffet room is a colorful and lofty work of art. Wondering eyes looking up and around in any of the Tusker House rooms will be met with African inspired details and captioned photos.
The cuisine at Tusker House is more American than anything, with only slight spice nods to African flavors. There are a couple of kid-centric (i.e. low) buffet tables with very common foods (i.e. mac & cheese, hot dog nuggets, etc.). The "stations" are well spaced and start with bread and spreads, followed by salads, then into the warm vegetables and a few "featured" stew or spiced shrimp options. Tusker House still has it's own giant 18-foot rotisserie dubbed the “Wall of Flames” where carved meats and salmon are grilled. A dessert station is in the center of the buffet area.
The characters at Tusker House are dressed in their "safari" outfits and usually include Mickey, Donald and Daisy, and Goofy. We have, on occasion, seen Minnie as well. Unless you are speed-eating, you will probably get to interact with each of the characters a couple of times during the course of a meal.
