    Hmm, I wonder what will happen to the Character Breakfast at Restaurantasaurus..it sounds exactly the same, hopefully they won't have two of the same type restaurants in the same park!

    Maybe they changed it for the dining plan? If I remember correctly AK only had counter restaurants so you couldn't use any table meals there.

    From another site....................

    Tusker House is closing on August 20 and will reopen on November 17 as a full serve buffet restaurant.

    When Tusker House reopens, it will offer the "Donald's Safari Breakfast" from 8:00am thru 10:30am.

    Buffet Lunch/Dinner will be served starting at 11:30am until park closing.(Only breakfast will feature characters.

    Note that "Donald's Breakfastosaurus in Restaurantosaurus will be discontinued on November 5. That dining venue will continue to be counter serve from 10:30am till park closing.

    SO that makes one Counter Service restaurant on the Dining plan for all of AK. Wonder if they are going to add the yet to be Yak and Yeti to the DDP???????

    Oh well that leaves the Flame Tree BBQ, which is what I like anyway. LOL
    It's a Disney thing. If you understood, your only question would be "can I go?"

    GEEEZZZ....what does he want to do when you go? Tell him there is a really cool show called the Festival of the Lion King show and when you get there you JUST HAVE to ask a CM to be seated in the "giraffe" section because he really wants picked for it. Not telling, and y'all keep quiet on it too.

    I was not going to go to Tusker House when I'm there the end of May but may go now.

    Any opinions whether I should try it before it changes or go to Flame Tree instead? I haven't tried either yet.

    I like the rotisserie chicken meal at Tusker House.

    I look forward to the changes. I'm not a huge fan of RFC and didn't have a good experience with Donald's breakfast.

    This sounds like a good change in the AK. We went to Donald's Breakfastosaurus in April and were disappointed, big time. Hopefully by moving it they will offer better food. I always liked going to Tusher House for quick breakfast, so if they incorporate some of that fair, I'm in.

    I'm happy Breakfastosaurus is out, I don't think the characters get to interact with the families enough.

    Tusker House is my favorite counter service restaurant! It's such a great change from burgers at most of the counter service places. I will miss it so much!

    OH man just when Tusker house was really really growing on me! Also last week when I was at AK it seemed like they were building a new restaurant near the bird show. Anyone know anything about it?
