African-flavored buffet with characters for breakfast and lunch. If open for dinner there are no characters.

Type of Service:

Buffet/All You Care to Eat


The restaurant itself is decorated like an African marketplace. Be sure to look (up) for the allusions to Imagineer Joe Rohdi, who was instrumental in developing Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park.

Back Story: The Marketplace at Tusker House (the center area where all the food stations are located) is where the locals serve food and sell African items in an effort to help the people of Harambe Village. There are 4 named dining rooms School/Training Room, Marketplace, Blue Room and the Artifacts Room.


Donald's Dining Safari at breakfast and lunch serve up character interaction with Donald (who greets you with a photo op outside), Daisy, Mickey, Minnie and Goofy, with an occasion parade around the restaurant.
