I am dying to try Boma for breakfast. Sanaa looks yummy too. WCC just doesn't sound good to me. Maybe the shakes, but not the food.

Loving the reviews! We aren't on the DDP for our upcoming trip and I am in awe of some of your totals (especially at WCC -that is a crazy amount to pay for food that is just ok!). But - I am really craving some hummus right now!

It would be a shame. I thought it was great. If you're staying near AKL, you should go.

Agreed on all counts.

Yeah, I'd skip WCC next time. DxDDP is a great value for the amount of food, but I doubt we'd ever order nearly that much if we weren't on DxDDP.

Were you guys at MK on Aug 15? Meeting with Goofy 4-4:30? If we we were right there
We were there, but probably more like 6:30.

Animal Kingdom Snacks

DDs had ice cream while we rode Everest.

Then we joined them with an ice cream float.


It hit the spot.

Jiko, the eating place.

I have to admit, I was expecting a lot when we sat down here based on all of the great reviews on the DIS. I am not sure if it quite lived up to my high expectations, it would have been nearly impossible. But I will say that the food was fantastic and the CMs were friendly and efficient. This is a very nice restaurant at WDW.
We arrived for our 5:55pm ADR at 5:45 and we were seated promptly at 5:48. Our server was Omar from Morocco he was very knowledgeable on the menu and very friendly and super patient with the kiddies. Now on the food, the star of the show at Jiko.

Bread & Butter



The bread was a hit with us – two kinds – honey wheat and flaxseed and the butter was a tandoori spiced butter, served room temperature, so it was highly spreadable and delicious.

On the apps
Aurora’s salad


She enjoyed it a lot


Ariel got the carrot sticks, celery an peanut butter, I must of blinked and it was gone.


DW, Mrs. Potts and I all shared the following:

Barbecue Chicken Flatbread


Artisan Cheese Selection


Taste of Africa - Trio of Dips with Assorted Breads and House-made Naan


Our apps were pretty good, but the bbq chicken flatbread was awesome!

Frankly, the breads and dips were better at Sanaa.

On to the main course
I had the Oak-Grilled Filet Mignon - with Macaroni & Cheese and Red Wine Sauce. It was just as good as the prior reviewers said it was fantastic!


Mrs. Potts got the Oak-Grilled Filet Mignon but subbed veggies for mac and cheese.


DW got the Swahili Curry Shrimp


Aurora got gilled cheese and Ariel got the mac and cheese. Ariel did not like the mac, but ate half the grilled cheese.




Desserts were very strong here. Double mmmm.
First they brought out a freebie for Mrs. Potts birthday - Pistachio Creme Brulee


Smores (kid’s menu)


Pear pastry


Tanzanian Chocolate Cheesecake


Chocolate Fondue (kid’s menu)

Kenyan Coffe Ice Cream with Spiced Donuts

The food was great, but the service made on major mistake, they served the entrees before clearing the apps, so I gave Jiko 4 stars.

DW gave Jiko 4.5 stars

Mrs. Potts gave Jiko 4.5 stars

Total score 13/15 stars

Total cost without DxDDP $220

Snack time????

After Jiko, what else could we do but go to Goofy's Candy Co. for a snack.

As you can see we haven't eaten them yet. That's the counter in our villa.

Looks so yummy!
We have a Sannaa lunch and a Jikko dinner scheduled during our upcoming trip, though on different days. I've been kind of worried that they might be too similar. Did you find it to be different enough to make it worth trying both?

Thanks for another wonderful update. My husband had that curry shrimp and loved it. Your DDs are so adorable. When we ate there my son ate his salad but only half his meal...I guess he got filled from the salad and wanted dessert.
