The Little Mermaid is celebrating 30 years on November 13 (somehow Ariel doesn’t look a day over 16!), and Walt Disney World is celebrating with a truly unique spin on a movie anniversary tie-in.
from Disney’s Animal Kingdom!
Tusker House Restaurant
Time to visit one of our favorite character dining locations: Tusker House! Tusker House is located in Animal Kingdom’s African village of Harambe and offers a character buffet for breakfast and lunch and a “family style dinner buffet” (really just a buffet — no family style service), also with characters!
One added element of dining at Tusker House is the opportunity to reserve the Rivers of Light Dining Package here, which saves a seat at Animal Kingdom’s newly-revamped Rivers of Life: We Are One nighttime spectacular. Generally, the price differential between the character meal and the dining package is pretty small here, so you may find it’s worth the slight splurge to score that reserved seating.
We weren’t after the Dining Package this time, but we sure were excited to see if the food and experience at Tusker House lived up to its past quality. And we ended up eating TWO full meals at once, which we really didn’t expect! (Read on to find out how we did it!)
We’ve got a lot of food to share with you, so let’s get going!
Tusker House is a charming restaurant located on your left-hand side in Harambe as you head toward Kilimanjaro Safaris. Check in is at a stand near the Dawa Bar, and you’ll be given a pager. Here you’re welcome to glance at the menu — but keep in mind it’s pretty generic because it’s a buffet! (Don’t worry: we’ll get more specific, and we have photos of EVERYTHING below!)
While the experience was a great one overall, Black Tap’s signature CrazyShakes were an absolute highlight. That’s why we’re so excited to let you know that an all-new CrazyShake has taken a spot on the Black Tap menu (both here in Downtown Disney and at Black Tap locations worldwide) starting today! Are you ready for this? It’s the Churro Choco Taco CrazyShake.
Greetings from Hurricane Hanna’s along Stormalong Bay! Earlier this week we let you know that Yacht & Beach Clubs’ Hurricane Hanna’s has some new menu items, including a new burger we couldn’t wait to try…so we did!
Today we were excited to dig into the Shipwreck Angus Bacon Cheeseburger.
This brand new burger is made of short ground rib and brisket, and topped with fried shrimp, bacon, cheddar cheese, and a Cajun remoulade sauce! It’s served with your choice of Waffle Fries or Apple Slaw.
