It depends on the shape of the bottle. If an American gallon is two pints? It will hold 2 pints but sometimes the little bar on the fridge is broken and then it's dodgy! It held the biggest bottle of milk they sold in the AKL shop if that helps.

We loved the Zanzibar Fish stew ( if you like mussles , lobster etc), it is not pricey at all for what you get.
The lamb I had was expensive , but totally worth it !!
Marco had a sort of pie - filled with vegetables , he said it was awesome.
At the end I had a plate of various cheese - really good , as French cheese , but more "spicy".
Marco had , I think, "coffee" creme brulee . but wasn' much impressed.

All in all Jiko is marvellous , YOU WILL HAVE A BALL !!
Do not eat too much of those wonderful breads , sauces and flat-breads , or you won't have "space" for the main courses ...

2 cups = 1 pint
2 pints = 1 quart
2 quarts = 1/2 gallon
2 1/2 gallons = 1 gallon

So..... 8 pints = 1 gallon

Don't worry, I don't get metric either.

As for the original question....I don't know if a gallon will fit but maybe 2 1/2 gallons will. Can you wait to buy til you've seen the fridge?

Thanks! Your American pint/gallon is not the same size as our gallon and pint! Always confuses us!

Yes, I learned that quickly upon ordering my first "pint" in a pub in the UK!

Whoa, Betty!

When the bartender noticed my look of surprise (shock), he asked, "'ave ya been drunk on 'oliday yet, luv?"

To which I replied, "um, no..."

And he chuckled, "Well, tonight's your night!"

And it was.

I was able to do online check in today, and I had a couple of options that I had questions about. Two of them were the Kudu Trail View and the Sunset Savannah View, but we have a Pool View reserved. Does anyone know what those two mean?

Same thing happens to me in June.. I would not put anything and call with your request. The CM told my agent that it was a glitch. I was in 3010 on giraffe trail and it was the most perfect room

Thank you. The only request that is important to the DH is the close to the lobby one.
