Tusker House Restaurant

Fans celebrated this restaurant’s character buffet, unique dishes, and flavors. The consensus revolved around going to the eatery for breakfast rather than another meal. One fan and Guest, u/MasterKluch, also underscored that the service they received there was “the best at Disney,” highlighting the Cast Member who worked there:

We went there for breakfast on my son’s birthday and the CM who served us was the best. She went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. She took pictures of our whole family with the characters and included some goodies for my son’s birthday. The food was good too, but the service was the best we’ve experienced at Disney.

Yak and Yeti

Guests were supremely impressed with this Nepalese restaurant at the base of Expedition Everest. As Disney fans know, on offer is pan-Asian cuisine with the restaurant located in a quaint village home that’s been transformed into a restaurant.

Guests praised this eater calling it “phenomenal.” U/somewhenimpossible chimed in, “Felt like I got value for money, loved the food, and – biggest win ever – MY KID ATE THERE. I was so worried doing table service with a very picky eater.”

Topolino’s Terrace — Flavors of the Riviera

This restaurant serves French and Italian fare and offers character dining and fine dining options. Their two distinct dining experiences on offer are breakfast Ă  la Art with Mickey & Friends and a dress-code-required signature dining experience at dinner featuring French- and Italian-inspired eats. No characters appear at dinner.

Guests reported they loved the breakfast experience at the eatery, highlighting they would go back again even without the character dining because the food was so good.
