Not ME!! The only deluxe I have stayed at is the WLV and that was with a Timeshare exchange. This trip to the WL will be our first time paying for Deluxe OOP and CL would have been way more! Last year there was no deluxe DP. We used the TiW card. Deluxe DP was for our 5 year anniversary and hubby says never again lol.

Jiko looks good! Too bad I can't convince my DH we need to give it another chance!

LOL!
I had got a chuckle out of the little "Thumbs Up Photobomber" in one of your Jiko pics!!

Ahhhh....Jiko.
I will be enjoying yet another amazing dinner there in just two short months!

Mmm, Jiko looks amazing! I think I'll definitely be trying those short ribs when we visit on the 28th, your description and photos are making my mouth water.

So sad the apple spice cheesecake is no longer on the menu, it sounded so yummy when Em reviewed it after your previous visit. I don't really see anything on the new menu that grabs me either.

Thanks for another great update!

Absolutely loving your reviews!

I'd never considered dining at Territory Lounge before, but I'll have to keep it in mind after reading your review. Planning to dine for the first time at Jiko on my upcoming trip, so I'm glad too see it gets such favorable reviews.

LOL!!! I love it too!! What a smile!

My DFamily has never been to Jiko. Of course, I long to go there and this report makes it harder not to change my ressie's around! It looks like an amazing restaurant and what a pleasant surprise to have CHEF JON there to talk to as well!!

Great review of Jiko! Are we still on to dine there on my last night? If so, I need to go ahead and make an ADR. I would like to say that I will give the short rib another try based on your stellar review, but I think I might need some more convincing.

Good to see a review of Jiko. I have a reservation there for my first dinner of the trip and I'm really back and forth on whether to keep it or not. I'm not a fan of the recent menu changes. This just makes it harder to decide!

Jiko has always been good for me! Their flatbreads are outstanding and I've never been disappointed in any of the entrees I've tried. Dessert, on the other hand, always miss the mark for me! On my May visit I thought I would give the Gooseberry Milk Tart a try. YUCK! Probably the worst dessert I've ever had anywhere!! My advice to anyone wanting to try Jiko: Enjoy the appetizers and entrees but get dessert somewhere else!

I love your trip reports and I love food, so basically...I am going to love this report!

The lounges really are gems, aren't they? If I wasn't on the dining plan, I would probably use them a lot!

Jiko just seems so beautiful...on both the eyes AND tongue! I can't wait to finally try it!

Hungry for more!

All caught up here too. YUM. Well, except for the Tortuga Tavern nachos. I don't like that fake cheese goo either. I don't think I've ever visited when Tortuga Tavern was open so good to know I'm not missing much.

I am so intrigued by club level stays. On my wish list, for sure!

Ahh... Jiko. So yummy. Now I am seriously second guessing that it is not on our itinerary in October. Wonder if I could find a night to fit it in...

Can't wait to hear about the sunrise safari!!

Yet another restaurant I have to put on the "to try" list. I'm afraid it will be 2015 before we can since our daughter-in-law is very fussy (unless I make it a night before they join us next year).

Look at you...the celebrity who meets "the Chef."
