    Did you PAY for a savannah view ;) if so, then yes, you'll get a room with a view of animals. However, if you only ASKED for a savannah view, then you'll likely only get what you paid for.

    That being said, we only paid for a pool view, never asked for more, and were upgraded to Arusha view pixiedust:pixiedust:pixiedust:pixiedust:

    OMG That was so awesome! Our girls never want another resort/room again.

    this is my first time in a DVC..If I have a Savannah room and requested "Arusha" ..how likely is that? It my DH first time at the resort, so I wanted it to be special ...DD and I have had Arusha and sunrise before, so to us, its not a big thing..just didn't know how DVC worked

    Anything and everything, Jiko is amazing. popcorn::

    If you're booked for a savannah view through DVC you will get an Arusha view, savannah view is always Arusha for DVC.

    The filet and Mac and cheese. The Mac and cheese is not on the menu, but last time we were there you could still get it. Soooo yummy!!! Enjoy it! It is a great experience!

    Will the fridge at AKL hold a gallon of milk?

    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 ... ;)

    I think they're all on the 5th floor, I could be wrong though.

    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. ;)
