    My In-Laws have been nice enough to take the entire family to WDW in May. We'll be staying at Jambo House. They will also be celebrating their 35th wedding anniversary and we'd like to surprise them is a elegant dinner for the two of them. Any suggestions?

    Hi Dave.  How sweet of you to arrange a special dinner to celebrate such a special anniversary.  Disney World is the perfect place to honor such an occasion, so you've come to the right place.

    One of my all-time favorite Disney restaurants happens to be conveniently located right where you're staying, at Animal Kingdom Lodge.  Jiko, a Disney Signature restaurant, combines the perfect balance of elegance and authentic African Cuisine, serving as an ideal venue for upscale Anniversary dinner.  My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at Jiko last Fall along with our young daughter and we were pleased with every aspect of the evening from appetizer to dessert.  We are in the restaurant business, and consider ourselves discerning patrons...even so, we have always enjoyed the level of service and the unique culinary flavors offered at Jiko.

    Reservations can be made up to 180 days in advance, so be sure to make your reservation as soon as possible ONLINE or by calling Disney Dining at (407)WDW-DINE.  Be sure to let them know you are celebrating a very special anniversary and they will notate this to the reservation.  You can also arrange to have a special custom cake delivered to the table after dinner by calling the Disney Cake Hotline at. (407)827-2253.

    If Jiko doesn't seem to fit the bill, I would recommend checking out the other Disney Signature Dining options to browse the other available options.
