Jiko – The Cooking Place


Animal Kingdom Lodge’s Signature Dining experience is located at Jiko- The Cooking Place.  Themed in the colors of an African sunset, you will find a multi-culturally influenced menu with some of the best wine options on all of Disney property!  The menu selections are an eclectic mix of Indian, African, and Mediterranean dishes.  You’ll watch chefs prepare appetizers and tantalizing dishes right before your eyes, and the menu is full of flavors and dishes that will please any appetite.  You can view the full menu HERE.  

This is a favorite of couples and a signature dining experience so remember if you are on the Disney Dining Plan it will take 2 of your table service credits!  Also, if you choose to dine at Jiko, they have expectations for how you are dressed. It’s a good idea to make sure you look nice.   Jiko is kid friendly, as well, with pizzas, steak, macaroni and cheese, and other fun items on their children’s menu.

Overall, we give Jiko an “A+”.
