You check in at the Jiko podium (no need to sign up beforehand - just get to Jiko a little before 4). You tour Boma first, then Jiko, and get samples of food at each.

We tried to do it in April but obviously picked the wrong day, as Boma was closed for construction, and Jiko wasn't ready for us at 4 because the tour usually starts at Boma. So, all they did was grab a server to point out a couple of hidden mickeys in Jiko, and then let us try the Taste of Africa, which is a collection of breads and dips. It was delicious, though the whole experience only took about 15 minutes because of the shortened tour, so I was kind of annoyed I had skipped a different 4 pm tour (about the hotel architecture) just for some bread and dip.

We're going to try again in October to see if we get the full-on tour! I think it would have been a blast.
Thanks so much! This will be my first solo trip and am looking for some different things to do.

You too John's Mom

Sounds like WDW is super crowded this holiday weekend. I must say I'm glad I'm not there right now. But... 3 weeks from today I will be!

Hi everyone. My family and I will be arriving in Disney Aug 24 with a split stay 24- 28 at the ASM and 28- 31 at AKL. Staying with both sets of parents so we booked a 2 bedroom suite at AKL. Couldn't handle more then 3 nights with everyone in the same space (2 kids and 5 adults)

Question- on the tour of the restaurants is that an extra charge or something do for free?

Hi everyone - we just booked a 1BR at AKV for March 20-22. It's our first time staying at AKL and are so excited to try it. We booked the savannah view so hopefully that will be a big hit with the kids.

So, the "tropical" outlook for Orlando during the week of June 9th looks bad. There is a possible tropical storm suppose to form over the state... Means rain, rain, rain... I am so not happy.. June is suppose to be too early for this crap

That STINKS
But weather forecasts change so much - try not to worry.

What exactly is the tour of the restaurants? If its pretty much as the name states, is it limited to AKL. Also is there a link to more info?
