    I am having trouble choosing between 2 restaurants. Going to HS in the morning & eating at 10:10 at Hollywood & Vine. Heading to AK for the evening. I have reservations for 6 ( kids 6 and 8, 4 adults) @ Tiffins at 7pm AND at 8:15 at Jiko. Help!

    Hi Angela,

    Thanks for visiting Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Choosing between Jiko - The Cooking Place and Tiffins as your dining experience is choosing between amazingly delicious and deliciously amazing. I love both restaurants and, personally, I think either will be wonderful. The Taste of Africa naan and dips at Jiko is a fantastic start to your meal. At Tiffins, I find the Charred Octopus appetizer artfully prepared. I feel the vibe and ambiance at each restaurant is simply relaxing and enjoyable, and the attentive service at each will keep you in great care. So, how to decide between them? I have two suggestions. First, check out the menu for Jiko and for Tiffins. You know the tastes and level of culinary adventure for your group better than anyone. I find that Tiffins offers delightful dishes you won't typically find elsewhere, and that's one of the aspects I love about the menu. Both restaurants offer kids' meals as well. The second suggestion is to just think about logistics and location. Tiffins, with its space inside Disney's Animal Kingdom, makes it super convenient to enjoy the park and stroll into the restaurant. Jiko, on the other hand, means a short trip over to Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. You'll also want to consider your after-dinner plans and the park's scheduled hours when making your choice.

    Any way you look at it, Angela, you are in for a memorable dining experience.

    Enjoy your Disney!

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
