WDW News Update: Tusker House Adds Character Lunch

Good news, Animal Kingdom fans!

The Dis just reported that starting December 4, Tusker House Restaurant at Disney's Animal Kingdom will be offering a character lunch in addition to their character breakfast. According to the report, Donald Duck and Daisy Duck are among the characters that will appear.

Personally, I have never been to Tusker House for lunch; however, my husband Tom and I thoroughly enjoyed our character breakfast there. Before you enter, you and your party get to take a photo with Donald Duck dressed in Safari gear. The food at Tusker House is different... it didn't feel like the same old character breakfast.

I am slightly disappointed because we will miss this new character lunch during our post-Thanksgiving trip by only two days! But there's always next trip!

Roe's Top Tip: Make a dining reservation for an in-the-park character breakfast slightly before the park opens. At the turnstiles, they will check your reservation and allow you to get inside the park before it's open to the general public. Bring your camera because you will get to experience the park with practically no other guests around and it will allow you to get a jump start on your Disney day!
