For the ul­ti­mate date-night ad­ven­ture, head to Dis­ney’s An­i­mal King­dom Lodge, open to the pub­lic. Step inside the Jambo House, and you’ll be trans­ported half­way across the globe to Africa with the thatched roof, cathe­dral ceil­ings, and stun­ning wood­work and art. Just out­side, stroll the grounds of the na­ture pre­serve to spot ze­bras, gazelles, longhorn cat­tle and gi­raffes. Im­merse the senses with din­ner at Jiko—the Cook­ing Place. New head chef, Daniel Si­cilia, and pas­try chef, Michael Craig, present a beau­ti­fully crafted menu with an ex­cit­ing fu­sion of African, In­dian and Mediter­ranean fla­vors. Whet your palate with the Taste of Africa, then move on to hearty en­trees like lamb, elk and wagyu. Jiko is also known for its wine list. Wine Spec­ta­tor has taken no­tice of the 135-bot­tle, 100 per­cent South African col­lec­tion. Chil­dren are wel­come in the din­ing room, and child­care is also pro­vided at Simba’s Club­house.
