1. Jiko, Animal Kingdom Lodge Jambo House
Mix the exotic atmosphere of Animal Kingdom Lodge with amazing food and you have my number 1 selection for resort dining: Jiko. Here you can bring your children, and though the prices aren’t inexpensive it is a great meal for a splurge. In addition to dinner Jiko offers a wine tasting. The seasonal dinner menu highlights African, Mediterranean and Indian tastes and includes the fan favorite Oak-Grilled Filet Mignon. Although no longer listed on the menu, you can request the white cheddar macaroni and cheese as a substitute. Everything is prepared in a show kitchen so you have some entertainment while you eat. This is a definite must do for “foodies.” After you finish your delicious meal take some time to walk around the Lodge and take in the architecture and artifacts, and step outside to see the animals or enjoy the fire pit.
