Ashly and Ian arrived safely in Orlando! Woo hoo! Although it was a tough journey for them after the crazy plane re-routes and fog landings, we were able to keep our dinner reservations at Jiko, a restaurant featuring upscale African, Indian and Mediterranean cuisine.
The blog has quite a few foodies and we eat very, very well so I’m going to include notes and reviews of the restaurants for my own convenience to make it easier to recall exactly how I felt about each establishment for reference the next time we visit Walt Disney World. Those of you who don’t care about gourmet food won’t find this interesting but those of you who do will be inspired; we certainly were.

As for main courses, following a day of travel, the selection was heavy on fine cuts of meat.
Dessert at Jiko in the Animal Kingdom at Walt Disney World
For dessert, we went somewhat classic, not venturing too far out of the box. All of us were very satisfied.
Value for the Money and Review
Including tip and tax, dinner at Jiko was around $330.00 for the four of us. Overall, I’d say it was worth it. The service was good, the food was interesting, and it was a great start to our resort adventure.
