    Hey Jodie. Have you ever stayed at the Animal Kingdom Lodge? I heard there is a hidden Mickey in Jiko. Do you know where it is?

    Hey there Ari!

    It's great to hEAR from you!  I have stayed at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge several times now and love the unique theming, great dining options, and relaxing atmosphere! I have also stayed in a Two-Bedroom Villa with a Savanna View at Kidani Village, which my family of six thoroughly enjoyed!  It doesn't get any better than being able to sip a cup of hot coffee on your balcony each morning, while admiring giraffes, zebras, and other exotic animals found at this Disney Deluxe Resort. 

    Jiko - The Cooking Place is one of my favorite Signature Restaurants at the Walt Disney World Resort! You have heard correctly...there is a hidden Mickey in Jiko. During one of our dining experiences at Jiko, our waiter encouraged my children to go on a "hidden Mickey search," while we waited for our dishes to be prepared. The hidden Mickey is located on the ceiling above the two orange oven exhausts and white column. The hidden Mickey in Jiko is one of the largest I have ever seen on property. 

    I would highly recommend staying at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge and experiencing the amazing Jiko - The Cooking Place during your next Walt Disney World vacation. They will not disappoint! I hope this information is helpful! Please don't hesitate to visit us again if you have any additional questions that we can assist you with.  I hope you have a magical day, Ari!
