    Hello! Can you break down what my TS options are at AKL? I think it would be fun to eat there. Is there another resort we try instead?? We are going to O'hana already. Thanks so much!

    Hi there Danelle! Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge is one of my favorite Walt Disney World Resorts for its exotic theming and fantastic dining options! There are three table-service restaurants at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge: Jiko - The Cooking Place, Boma - Flavors of Africa, and Sanaa. Jiko - The Cooking Place, a signature dining location, is one of my absolute favorite restaurants at Walt Disney World for the mouthwatering dishes, beautiful setting, and amazing service. Boma - Flavors of Africa is a lively, family-friendly restaurant with a bountiful buffet that is open for both breakfast and dinner. I have enjoyed breakfast at this dining location several times in the past and have always been thoroughly pleased with the diverse food offerings, flavorful dishes, and excellent service. Sanaa is a table-service restaurant located in Kidani Village that offers beautiful views of the Sunset Savannah and many unique dishes for guests to choose from. Based on my own personal experience, my recommendation would be Jiko - The Cooking Place followed by a self-guided tour of the grounds. 'Ohana is an excellent choice and a family favorite! I would also recommend Kona Café located in Disney's Polynesian Resort. Whispering Canyon Cafe located in Disney's Wilderness Lodge is a fun, rowdy table-service restaurant with a Western theme serving hearty American favorites. I would recommend visiting the independent website to view their extensive menu database. I like to view both the adult and children's menus before choosing a restaurant for our Walt DIsney World vacations. I hope this information helps! Please don't hesitate to write me back with any additional questions. Best wishes for a magical trip, Danelle!
    Bon Appétit,
