I looked and looked at that over and over and decided she must mean two - 1/2 gallons not 2 and a half. (I hope).

Keep in mind that if you have a regular savannah view room at AKL (non DVC) that an Arusha view savannah room costs more than a regular savannah view room. It's a category above a standard savannah room and costs about $30-$35.00 more per night depending on season and week/weekend.

So Arusha view isn't a "request" for a regular savannah room like "a certain floor" or "close to lobby" would be. Unless you get a free upgrade, you would have to pay more to upgrade a regular savannah view room to an Arusha savannah view room. The other savannahs are Uzima, Sunset, and at Kidani, Pembe.

Any savannah view room will have a view of one of the savannahs and you should see animals from your room. Different savannahs have different animals on them, but some overlap and are found on each savannah.

Here is what I tried (and loved) at Jiko during the two times that I ate there last month. I haven't tried the rest of the menu, but I was told by one of the chef's that the short ribs are great. I'll have to wait until Sept. to verify that...

Taste of Africa - Assortment of Dips with Pappadam, Poppy Seed Lavash, and House made Naan breads.

Beef Bobotie Roll with Cucumber Riata

Green Mango Atjar, and Honey-Roasted Groundnuts

Inguday Tibs in Brik with Mushrooms, etc....to long to write the rest..

Peri Peri roasted Chicken Flatbread with Lime Chakalaka, etc....

Oak grilled Filet Minon with lots of good stuff..

Tagine Chicken with Preserved Lemon, etc...

Maize crusted Corvina with Vegetables, etc...

Kenyan Coffee and Amarula Creme Brulee

Cheeecake with White Chocolate, Toasted Coconut, Mango Sauce, and Pineapple Chile Sorbet

Vanilla Rooibos-Tanzanian Chocolate Cake and Honey Nut Topping.

If you like a good tropical drink, ask for a "Sunriser". It's Rum, and Banana Liquor Blended with Orange, Pineapple, and Cranberry Juices. Soooo good..

They also have a great selection of South African wines that come recommended with appetizer, dinner, and desert if you are so inclined.

Well, now it appears it will depend on when you're going. All the fridges have been disabled due to a possible defect and will be replaced over the "next 4 months" This is for resorts ONLY -- it does NOT affect DVC rooms. (It also excludes Ft Wildness cabins and AoA suites.)



Here is a thread about it in case anyone's interested:

If the room is a "deluxe studio villa" it IS a DVC room and WILL have a half-size refrigerator. (Those rooms can be booked on cash through Disney, but they are DVC rooms.)

I know about the replacing in room fridge fiasco that will be going on throughout Disney resorts. :-). But does a standard room at AKL usually have a mini fridge in the rooms? Thanks!

We thought that also. So no surprise to hear about the defect! Thought we were going mad.... Our milk on cereal was warm. Not nice with lucky charms lol. Hey this is not suppose to be porridge!

I honestly don't think the defect is the fridge so much as it is inside of a cabinet that has no adequate ventilation.

Probably bought a cheap bulk load of fridges. False economy lol! I bet somebody is in a lot of trouble...wonder if they will be made to ride the rock n rollacoaster after eating a kitchen sink from beaches and cream.

I know right lol. I thought nothing would amuse me more than the refillable mug thread now with the 'rapid refill' update. Omg it's like walking dead out there. Every man for himself lol..

On a similar fridge rant thread I suggested buying a cheap fridge from walmart or target because they are quite cheap and that's what I would do. Omg I think I have a price on my head now.... In England you see it's a luxury to have a fridge in room. So forgive my naive British ways. We can't believe our luck having fridges in hotel rooms at moderate levels let alone values. I almost fainted when I heard this.
