    Hello, my family will be traveling to Disney World Animal Kingdom Lodge November 24-Dec 1 2012. We are a party of 16. Are there any suggestions you can give for dining together or any special tours they offer? Also it is my husbands 40th birthday

    The Animal Kingdom Lodge is a treat for the senses!  From the architectural design and artwork to the tastes and aromas of the food served in the restaurants there, you will not be disappointed.  And there is so much to see & enjoy for your large party of 16, such as the amazing opportunities to view the animals on the savannahs throughout the resort!

    There are several choices of dining experiences at the AKL:

    Jiko - The Cooking Place is Disney's Signature Dining at its best!  If you are looking for an upscale, fine dining experience that you'll never forget, they are happy to accommodate your entire party!

    My family of 18 vacations together there every year, and it is now a tradition to dine at Boma - Flavors of Africa, which is a casual, all-you-care-to-eat restaurant offering many choices of the flavors of Africa, along with more traditional American choices for the less adventurous.  Fantastic!

    Sanaa offers beautiful views of the Savannah in a casual atmosphere, with excellent African cuisine.

    And The Mara is the fast casual dining option. 

    When you call (407) WDW-DINE to make your reservations, let them know the number in your party, and how many are on the Dining Plan.  They will be able to serve you all together, no matter if some are on the dining plan and others are not & will divide the bill at the end.

    For your husband's birthday, let them know when you check in & whenever you dine & they will make it a special time!  And get him a special birthday button to wear throughout your vacation from your Resort Front Desk, or at Guest Relations in the Parks.  Cast Members & Guests, will recognize him and wish him many happy wishes.

    You can check out this web page for Special Tours & Experiences, and have a magical trip!.
