Jiko - The Cooking Place

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 signature restaurants. Advance Dining Reservations are strongly recommended.


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