Dining

Jambo House
(Existing Animal Kingdom Lodge)

Jiko


One theme that runs consistent throughout all the dining venues at the Animal Kingdom resort is the unique menus that are offered.  Jiko offers the most eclectic menu on property, offering authentic African cuisine.  Among the offerings, you'll find dishes as unique as Horseradish-crusted Salmon and Banana leaf steamed Sea Bass, to more traditional dishes like Baked Chicken and mashed potatoes and grilled beef tenderloin.  Even the traditional dishes are prepared with African flair, with dishes like the chicken featuring grapefruit, garlic and olives.

Jiko is one of Disney's most popular restaurants. Advance Dining Reservations are strongly recommended.


Boma


Boma is the more mid-range restaurant, offering both Breakfast and Dinner.  This popular venue features a wide assortment of unique and traditional specialties. An Advance Dining reservation is strongly recommended.

Mara


Mara, the counter serve venue, offers standard fare found in most food courts for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  Casual dining.


Kidani Village

Sanaa

This restaurant serves breakfast and dinner. Sanaa translates to "work of art" which describes the theme and cuisine to be offered here. This venue will have a 24 seat lounge adjacent to the dining room.

Maji Pool Bar

The Maji Pool Bar will be serving beverages and snacks at the Samawati Springs Pool.
