As a travel planner at Marvelous Mouse Travels, clients often ask me to make recommendations for character meals.On my latest Disney World visit, my family of four tried Tusker House for breakfast.The Animal Kingdom restaurant offers a character-dining experience for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.My family tried it for breakfast because I wasn't sure they'd enjoy the different flavors offered on the lunch and dinner menus. Plus, breakfast was the least expensive option. Breakfast pricing is $42 an adult and $27 a child (ages 3 to 9). Lunch and dinner are pricier at $55 an adult and $36 a child. We arrived at the African-themed eatery and sat quickly.The food is served family-style, and we started with a fresh-fruit platter with honey-yogurt sauce and a pastry board. The warm and flaky multigrain croissants with strawberry preserves were our favorite. The giraffe-print safari bread with the hazelnut-chocolate spread was also well-liked by my kids.With our first course, we were served the restaurant's famous jungle juice, and we all had multiple glasses of the nonalcoholic fruit-juice mix. My husband and I enjoyed some coffee as well. Diners can order specialty cocktails for an extra charge, including the African Bloody Mary, the African mimosa, and the Ngumu jungle juice (Snow Leopard vodka, Bols peach schnapps, and the fruit-juice mix). Kids can add on a specialty character drink or a smoothie.While we were eating our first course, we were visited by our favorite classic characters in their safari garb.Goofy, Donald, Daisy, and Mickey danced and visited the tables to take pictures.The short show was fun and my kids loved seeing their favorite pals. They also got an autographed postcard to take home with them. Even though the bread and fruit were filling enough for a meal, our main course arrived soon after.The family-style platter was brimming with scrambled eggs, waffles with Mickey and Simba designs, bacon, sausage, and roasted potatoes.We quickly devoured it.A smaller bowl of Durban chicken-and-egg curry with jasmine rice was also served.Everyone tried the dish, but my husband was the only one who really enjoyed it. I wasn't quite hungry enough for such complex flavors that early in the day. Plant-based and allergy-friendly options are also available upon request.Our total came to about $200, which I thought was very reasonable for a character-dining experience at Disney World.With classic breakfast fare, fun character interactions, and a moderate price tag, Tusker House is a great breakfast option in the parks.
