Cute, but the flavor was just not there…

The Experience (rating: 9/10) – The characters in their cute safari outfits are what make this place worth it. The characters come out multiple times and dance and interact a lot in the restaurant. All in all, if you come with kids then it’s a good experience but the food is nothing great. Especially, in Animal Kingdom where there is so much great food options like Tiffins or Yak & Yeti, I would skip this one…

But, how cute is Goofy?!

Overall Rating: 7/10 – Cute character interactions but bland food, in my opinion…
