Donald's Dining Safari at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park

The buffet-style restaurant is a crowd pleaser and one of our favorites, with a delicious spread that always includes dishes with an African influence. For instance, breakfast include Mickey waffles, scrambled eggs and honey-glazed ham, but you also can taste bobotie, a delicious beef casserole that’s similar to a quiche; yam casserole (trust us, it’s delish); and mealie pap, a traditional porridge.

Chefs crank up the “wall of flames,” an 18-foot-tall rotisserie that roasts chicken throughout the day. The menu includes carved beef, curry chicken and fish, but there’s also spiced tandoori tofu for vegetarians. And while you can feast on plenty of familiar sides, try the chutneys, the Tunisian couscous salad or the savory vegetable samosa pastry. Pair lunch with a glass of South African wine, Safari Amber beer or a signature cocktail. Just save a little room for the warm banana-cinnamon bread pudding.

Little ones get their own buffet with mac and cheese, chicken, PB&J and other kid-pleasing tastes.

Cost is $14.99 to $16.99 for ages 3 to 9 and $25.99 to $29.99 for ages 10 and older. Guests can book Donald’s Dining Safari Lunch by calling 407-WDW-DINE (3463). Online reservations may be made after Sept. 14 by visiting

One thought on “Donald’s Dining Safari Extends Opportunities”
  1. Went there a couple of days ago, and the character lunch at Tuskers was a horrible plan to begin with. The staff who keeps the line moving for Donald’s photo op are rude, as well as the photographers (who are very insistent on having the guests remove their sunglasses, as well as letting guests know at the last minute that Donald doesn’t sign autographs. The food was good, but i should’ve taken my chances @ Restarauntosaurus which i heard was much better due to it’s excellent staff.
