Lion King Dining Experience coming to Jiko at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge

May 03, 2019 in "Jiko - The Cooking Place"

Jiko at Disney's Animal Kingdom will be offering a limited-time Lion King Dining Experience this summer.

Beginning June 30 2019 and priced at $65 per person plus tax and gratuity, the three-course dinner features a selection of menu items and musical accompaniment from live musicians.

You’ll start your meal off with the “I Just Can’t Wait to be King” starter – a dish featuring Young Cedar Creek clam malata, potatoes, pomegranate, and a bone marrow finish.

Next, choose from two entrées: Bone-In Ribeye with hibiscus, nettles, and fregula or Lobster Sosatie with red shrimp, squid, mussels, and fragrant rice.

The dessert features caramelized orange and chocolate choux.

Finally, you'll get some candy and teas to complete the experience. Wine pairings are available at an additional cost, and the full Jiko menu will remain available for diners.

Reservations can be made via 407-939-3463.
